Will Wright Talks More Sims
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
An interview with Will Wright, Maxis' founder and creator of The Sims, has been posted at PC Gameplay. In the Q&A Wright discusses a number of general topics about both the game and the genre of sims in general. He also notes House Party will likely be the last expansion released for The Sims, as they want to now concentrate on The Sims 2 and Sims Online. While not much is know about either of these games, here are a couple of quick quotes:
PCG: What can we expect from The Sims 2? How do you see the concept evolving and expanding? The rest of the interview covers issues like console development, fan involvement, and more, so be sure to have a look. There is still no official word from Aspyr on the possibility of a Mac version of House Party, but we're hoping this is a likely project.

WW: I see The Sims evolving in a more dramatic direction (but also becoming more open-ended). The reality of the people should be much higher also.
PCG: How will The Sims Online work? Will the game evolve purely by the actions of its participants, or will there be 'events' triggered by a 'game master' to drive things along?
WW: We're trying to make the world as player-driven as possible - no game-master events. One of the main design goals is to reward players for doing or building cool and interesting things in the world that other players can then enjoy.
