HA4 – The SIMS College Concept Art – Production Log The SIMSThe Sims 3 is a 2009 strategic life simulation computer game developed by TheSims Studio and published by Electronic Arts. It is the sequel to the best-sellingcomputer game, The Sims 2. It was first released on June 2, 2009 simultaneouslyfor Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows - both versions on the same disc.The Sims 3 is built upon the same concept as its predecessors. Players controltheir own Sims in activities and relationships in a similar manner to real life. Thegame play is open-ended and indefinite. Sims houses and neighbourhoods areentirely in one continuous map. The developers stated, "What you do outsideyour home now matters as much as what you do within." One of the biggestchanges to the franchise is the use of rabbit-holes. Sims arent allowed to goinside the majority of city buildings; instead, they simply disappear inside for acertain amount of time—a feature known in video games as a rabbit-hole—while the player is given very basic choices on what happens inside withoutactually seeing it. The previous instalments had many types of locales in whichSims could cavort. For example, instead of walking a sim and her date inside arestaurant and watching the waiter serve them dinner as they nuzzle each otherat the table, as in The Sims 2, the player now waits outside while getting littletext alerts about the sims activities.The Sims 3 expansion packs provide additional game features and items. Therelease dates fall in line with the 88-day gap between each expansion/stuff pack.
