Virtual Villagers: New Believers
Straightforward Puzzles and New Challenges
I don't know whether I prefer this one or Tree of Life, but New Believers brought some new things to the table that I really enjoyed. The heathens can be quite a hassle, but I found a way to get the orange masks to go away without it being so annoying. I use one of my villagers to lure the heathens to the area next to the broken aqueduct. I trap my villager at the top of the waterfall and the heathens keep trying to chase them away, but they cannot go forward because the fall keeps them from doing so and my villager can't get away because the aqueduct is in their path and the heathens right in front of them. That way, they'll be stuck in there until you decide to take your villager out of the waterfall. Keep luring all the orange heathens there and you'll only have to worry about the red masks, and there are only three or four of them in the game. After you've destroyed the knowledge and hunger totems, there'll be one in the dry lake, one helping near the mausoleum and the other one will be swimming next to the rainbow totem. At least that's what's been going on the part of the game I'm in. I've read some reviews saying this one is the hardest of them all, but I actually find it one of the easiest? With all the others I had to look up at least three puzzles on the internet because I couldn't make it work in the game, but I have a feeling New Believers isn't gonna bring this problem to me. The puzzles are pretty straightforward so far, and if you really have that much trouble, you can always go on yahoo or whatever and they'll have detailed instructions on what to do. At least I suppose there will be, there have been for all the others. The real question for me here is when VV6 is coming out. I have a feeling the answer for that question is 'never', which is a pity. I really hope they find inspiration to keep going.

So Much Fun!
I have played the Virtual Villagers series and like them all very much. In the New Believers there are new challenges and lots more to do to make the village a success.
I enjoyed seeing the children, including the suprisingly precious heathen rascal, enjoy the butterflies. The games of tag and nursery school are sweet.
The villagers are a tad small, but not so much as to affect the play. One of my villagers looked like Dolly Parton and another like Stooge, Larry Fine. I had my favorites and hated to see the old villagers die.
Play this game. It is great fun and a welcome break from day to day stresses.

Always A Favorite!
I'm an avid fan of the VV series and I really look forward to any new games from this developer, so I hope we'll see another one soon!
I enjoy discovering the secrets of the islands as each game is unique in what there is for your villagers to figure out (excepting the hunt for food that is).
These games are in real-time play so they can leave them for a day or two, depending on what speed its set at.
Its important to always check on them to make sure they haven't all starved to death or something because then you'll have to start over, thats happened to me on several occasions so I know I'm not village chieftain material :).

I love the challenge but why is there 5 virtual villagers and when they are made by the same company only 2 virtual families. I like virtual families a bit better so I want to see more of them. I love all the virtual villagers and hope you continue making them.This and The Lost Children are probably my favorites.

Not A Game You Can Beat Quickly
Fans of Virtual Villagers will like this addition. Like all the others, the game plays in real time and so your villagers continue without you when you leave your computer. The masked heathens give it a more challenging twist than the others, making tasks slightly more difficult to complete. Also there seems to be more objects to find for the collections giving you more to do while you wait for your little people to finish their tasks.
