GameSkinny: The Sims 4 Preview
Posted by The Sims 4

Will Wright’s The Sims is a cultural phenomenon. It is has been the biggest selling franchise of all time, with only Grand Theft Auto looking to challenge that status quo. The ability to create a bright and irreverent take on life has always been one of its main pulls.


But as the series drew on, more and more levels of player customization were introduced, which has also been seen as one of the other reasons why the franchise has been so successful. The Sims 4, unsurprisingly, is set to take customisation not only to another level, but also make it more accessible. But is it what the game needs?

Community Blog: Getting to Know SimGuruRyan

Hey everyone! My name is Ryan Vaughan and I‘m a producer for The Sims 4. A lot of you might be wondering what the heck a producer does day-to-day. How do I spend my time in The Sims Studio? And, maybe what my favorite food is? This is my opportunity to let you get to know me and the role I play on The Sims 4 team a bit better.
First, let me say that I’ve actually been working on The Sims for more than six years! It’s gone by pretty fast, but when you truly love what you do, it’s inspiring to come in on a daily basis and have a lot of fun. Don’t get me wrong, all jobs come with their own challenges, but working on The Sims has been incredible.
In The Sims Studio, a producer works with all the different members of the team. We work with artists, computer engineers, designers, QA, other producers, you name it! In the simplest terms, we help keep them on track, hit their schedules, and make sure the game is the best that it can be. Simple task right? It’s actually a lot more than that.
