The Ville

Moby ID: 57034

Description

The Ville is a social game in which the player builds a house, expands and decorates their house and lot, and levels up relationships with their friends. The player creates a customized avatar when starting the game, then proceeds through tutorials guided by their NPC neighbors to learn the interface and gameplay. It is the spiritual successor to YoVille.

Playable through Facebook and Zynga's own game portal, the player can become in-game neighbors with their social network friends and level up their relationships (either friendship or romantic). It is also possible to interact with their neighbors through asynchronous multiplayer gameplay where a friend will see the interactions when they next play the game.

Players can purchase a multitude of items for their house and lot, plus clothing, accessories, and costumes for their own avatar. Coins can be earned to purchase many items by performing in-game jobs, and purchase other items through micro-transactions. Jobs require happiness which the player earns by interacting with friends and items in their own and others' houses.

The player can invite multiple neighbors over to their lot simultaneously, and also see multiple neighbors when visiting their friends' houses. Players can perform party actions with many friends simultaneously to gain a greater amount of happiness in one action. Pets can be adopted and there are social mini-games like the lemonade stand, kissing booth, bunny collecting, and the bird tree.
