Interview with Will Wright
7:39 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

TechTV has posted a short interview with Will Wright, well-known game designer and an industry veteran. The focus of the interview is on his arguably most popular work, The Sims, and takes a look at the secrets behind his success:

Oddly enough, 'The Sims' owed more inspiration to 'SimAnt' than anything else. We did 'SimAnt' and we tried to do it fairly realistically in the way ants behave. I was very impressed with the robustness of that behavior model.
Also covered in the interview are how Wright got into developing games, his original career path, and how his Sims exhibit intelligence. A link to a video profiling Wright is also available.
