A note from the developer:
Hi, and thanks for taking a look at Virtual Families 2! We have been working on it for quite a while, and we’re very happy to be able to finally share this new chapter with everyone.
Before you skip down to the bullet points and screenshots, let me say a few quick words about this game, and life simulations in general: I love life simulation games. I have always been passionate about designing them, and almost everything that comes out of Last Day of Work is a life sim of some kind. This one, in particular, thrills me so much because it is designed to have a life of its own: unpredictable and so different each time I play it, and each time another player plays it. I love that the story unfolds differently for everyone who plays it, and your experience with the game might be wildly different from your friends’ experience.
Designing this type of game, however, has its own special challenges. The main challenge is that EVERYTHING in life is a great idea to add to a game like this. There are SO many great ideas, and we simply cannot put them all in at launch. So, while I hope the game captivates you as much as it does us, there will inevitably be things that you feel are missing and you would love to see added (tell us!).
We plan to update the content in this game. We want to add pets, hidden puzzles, more storyline, more events, tons of new things to buy, and the list goes on and on. We will also continue to tune and deepen all the game's inner workings that control happiness, health, and everything else. While the game has been balanced to be playable for free and without purchasing anything, we hope that you will find something compelling enough in the game to give us support so that we can continue to create fun new updates.
Enjoy Virtual Families 2! Please visit our Facebook page and our forums to give your own amazing ideas and suggestions, and don’t forget to check in on your little family or they will get very sad. :)
With sincere gratitude,
Lead Designer, Last Day of Work

Ratings and Reviews
I love this game so much! I recently got the game and I’m on my second generation. I was on my tenth ( or something around that), and I recently downloaded it again. I love the new house renovations, and everything the game has to offer. Now, I have a few suggestions that I think would make the game better. 1) Diversity! Now, I know a lot of the reviews say this, and I think this is a needed touch. I don’t want just an entire white family, ALL. THE. TIME! 2) I need to be able to change the names! I have a family right now, and half of the names I can barely pronounce. I’m assuming that this game wasn’t originally made in America, but I would love to be able to change the names once the babies are born. I’m not all that worried about customization of the family, because you can’t really do that in real life. 3) Genetics? I currently have a family of five, and the parents have red and blonde hair. They just had a kid, and she came out with blue hair! Blue hair?! I know you can dye colors this way, but I’ve never heard of a blue-haired baby. Maybe selling different color dyes in the Flea Market for their hair? These are just a few of my suggestions, which I think would make me enjoy the game so much more! I would rate it 5 stars, but these things need to be taken into account. All of your games are amazing Last Day of Work, keep up the good work!
Great game but could be better with a few changes
Really interesting concept and fun game if you’re the nurturing type.
What I love about it: the characters have a mind of their own and live their lives in the background. Once you praise them for working once, they work on their own and progress in their career without you having to do anything. The more you praise them the more they work (like workaholics) and the faster they progress. This game is much more low maintenance than other life simulation games like the Sims, where you have to direct every action. There are interesting details about the backstory of the house that you read about and the characters interact with each other and the player.
What would make it better: the kids shouldn’t stay in boarding school or college until their parents die, they should be able to come back before that and work to help out. Also, The house is big enough for two families. Once the parents die, the player has to choose a sibling to live in the home and the other sibling disappears from the game. They could/should live together as a blended family or the sibling could start his own family in a different house, creating a whole new dimension for the game.
I love this game so much! I’ve been playing for around 3 1/2 years and can’t get enough. I’ve renovated and fully furnished the whole house and have had, like, a billion generations and currently have 200,000+ coins (and have never bought any with real money). However, I do wish there was more for elders to do. Each generation I have/adopt six children, and after they leave adults are home alone working and making money which can get boring. Also, like many other people, change the names! I have an uncommon name and I think it’s cool to have a variety, but seriously, WiFi, Coffee, and Zebra?!? And the three year olds will get rainbow hair while their parents are redheads. I wish that once you’ve completed the house, you can buy another one in the neighborhood. Lastly, I want more normal jobs! Currently, I have a Donut Decorator and an envelope stuffer. I do really like that there are so many decorating options and you can change your people’s outfits. Speaking of outfits, there’s no in between. For girls, you can either get an old lady dress and make them look like a grandmother going to a museum, or a teenager wearing a crop top looking like she’s going to some party. If your looking for a good game to pass time, this is a great option!
