SimsVille Interview
9:03 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

Following yesterday's look at the Sims expansion pack Hot Date, PC Gameplay looks at the next game being developed at Maxis: SimsVille. Rather than another expansion pack, this is a whole game in it's own right, often described as a crossover between The Sims and SimCity. The interview takes place with Executive Producer Kana Ryan and Associate Producer Virginia McArthur.

PCG: Can you explain to us in a nutshell what Simsville is all about?

VM: Simsville is about both the good and bad relationships that you can create by building a community for your Sims. In The Sims you're managing and maintaining the individual Sims, and in Simsville you're maintaining that community and those relationships amongst the families within the community.

With a new engine featuring zoomable 3D characters and a host of new content to keep you Sims happy this sequel is bound to be a hit with fans of the series. SimsVille is currently in development by Maxis and is scheduled for release in 2002, but there is currently no confirmed Mac publisher. For more information read the full interview and see the official SimsVille web site.
