Brightsolid Launches Family History Game

The following announcement was written by the folks at brightsolid:

brightsolid has launched new game, Family House. Designed to engage with a family audience, it is free on iPhone, iPad and Facebook.

The innovative new gaming product offers a virtual alternative for creating a family tree by asking players to build up and restore their ‘family’ house. Over 100,000 people have already moved into their own Family House on their PCs, and now Family House is available to play for the first time on iPhone and iPad. Players are encouraged to explore their family history by moving in more and more family members as their house grows.

brightsolid’s Family House Project Manager Robbie Graham explains, “The game has been designed to encourage families to create a virtual family tree and the avatar editor is central to the proposition. Users can recreate family member likenesses with a wide array of options. We’ve even created a range of clothing that goes right back to the 17th Century.”

Robbie added, “We wanted to create a fun app that’s rich in learning and sharing. Family House has been created with interactivity in mind and allows on-line play with friends and family. Users can assemble virtual streets and pop round to their friends and neighbours houses to meet their families.”

brightsolid Chief Executive Officer, Richard Higgs said, “Family House enables everyone aged from four to one hundred and four to share their family history. The game is great fun in its own right and provides an ability to bring generations together.”

Family House is available as a free download from the iTunes App Store or to play via Facebook.


Great idea!


What, no Android version!!! That leaves out an awful lot of potential users .


When will the android version be available?


I *got* bored very quickly.


Pity they don’t concentrate their efforts in sorting out the mess they’ve created on Find My Past.
