It was released December 6, 2012 for iOS and April 15, 2013 for PC/Mac.
Like its predecessor, Virtual Families, Virtual Families 2 is a game where the player can adopt a little person and raise a virtual family. But instead of a predecorated home, the little person (whom the player adopts) moves into a partly damaged, unfinished home (formerly owned by a married couple long ago, Bill and Margaret) with rooms that need to be repaired. The player needs to take care of their little family and earn money from the adults' careers in order to repair these rooms in order for them to become functional. Once repaired, the player may decorate the rooms to his/her own liking with furniture and room remodels that are bought from the Family Store.
