A PilmerPR client’s inaugural product, Family Village, is the first Facebook game that enables players to explore their own family tree while building an online game community connecting real families. It was featured on KSL Radio’s The Browser, Wednesday.
Family Village makes ‘hanging out with Family’ cool again. In a Farmville™-like environment, children and adults alike build their village adding houses, businesses, plants, animals and assigning jobs. In the background, the game researches for family information relevant to the player. Players grow family fortune by assigning their ancestors increasingly higher paying jobs. Facebook friends and family can share this fortune by visiting other villages, helping with jobs, viewing family trees, and exploring family documents together.
PilmerPR arranged for Funium CEO Jeff Wells and avid gamer Jeri Lin Bearnston to appear in studio at 2:05 p.m. for the 10-minute segment. The Browser is a show that “brings the internet to radio since browsing the web while driving is illegal.”
Family Village was also featured, recently, on KSL 5’s prime time news, in the Deseret News, and on multiple blogs, all while still in Alpha testing mode. The game will enter its limited beta phase shortly, though interested players can still learn more and help test the game at FamilyVillageGame.com.
