Who needs to go outside when you've got a screen to show you what outside should look like? Who needs to do chores when laundry can be folded at the push of a button? And who needs a real family, anyway? Isn't it better to talk through text messages and receive preprogrammed communications from your parents? Sure it is.

Live safe and sound in the Virtual Family, a soothing world where complete dependence on technology is the name of the game. When technology takes away all your ills, conflicts, and concerns, you become a happier human being. Right?

Virtual Family has three endings to choose from.
