Details on The Sims: Hot Date
10:02 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story
PC GamePlay has posted a short interview with team members working on the next expansion pack to the ever-popular Sims series. This next expansion, The Sims: Hot Date, will allow your Sims characters to chase those dreams of love. Whether you prefer to sing to your loved one in the park or get swinging in the nightclub, the focus this time around is on romance. The interview at PC GamePlay has quite a few insightful comments from Sims VP Steve Crane, Producer Tim Letourneau and one of the designers, Michael McCormick. Here is an excerpt, describing the gameplay:
The way it works depends on what you build and how much money you spend on the lot, and then the interactions on that lot will cost you in accordance with how much you spend. So a cheap date is to go to the park, because you don't have to pay for the stuff you can do there. But if you go to a really fancy French restaurant you're going to have to pay a lot of money. Each object has an efficiency rating. The more expensive, the more efficient. So it costs more to go to a restaurant but your fulfillment is higher.Rest assured there's plenty more to it than that though. The expansion pack is currently in development at Maxis and has not yet been announced for the Mac. We're sure this will change as the game gets closer to being completed, as all previous Sims titles have been brought to our platform. If you have some ideas on what social interactions you'd like to see in Hot Date, there was recently a call for ideas to be posted at the Sims BBS.
