SimsVille First Look
12:25 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Game Revolution has produced a very short preview and four screen shots of SimsVille, Maxis' next title in their seemingly inexhaustible Sims genre. This title seems to be a hybrid between their Sim City and Sims series, bringing the individual personalities and family dynamics of the Sims and the town building and management of Sim City together. Here's an excerpt with details on the future title:
The family is the focus of SimsVille. As you build your town, you're not just constructing homes and shops, you're moving in families and giving them the necessities of life. There is no word on the final release date of this title, or whether it will be coming to the Mac OS. However, considering Mac users' very enthusiastic response to The Sims and Livin' Large, both of which are topping recent Mac game sales charts, we are certain Aspyr Media is keeping an eye on all things Sims for possible future porting and release.

The Sims of SimsVille have unique personalities that govern their interests and attitudes. A family of lazy Sims might spend their time stretched out on lounge chairs, while their active neighbors will spend their time biking around town. Their personalities will even influence which restaurants they favor.
The families' interests will also be expressed in the look of their homes-the family who loves tennis may have a court in their backyard, and families with dogs will obviously need dog houses.
