Last week I ventured off to Cologne, Germany to attend my first ever gamescom. I’ve been to a few trade shows previously but this one was particularly exciting because I was able to meet many of the players. Looking back, it was a crazy (but fun!) few days in Cologne and I thought I could share of few of my top highlights from the event with you all.
Day 1 – Tuesday, August 14th
Prep and practice. In the press behind closed doors area, Producers Ben Bell and Mike Zamora ran through their demos of The Sims 3 Supernatural and The Sims 3 Seasons. I got to be their guinea pig to listen in and provide feedback. I asked them a few questions while they were running through the games but they were being pretty tight-lipped about giving me responses. I did get to experience a roller skating fairy and see Sunset Valley completely blanketed with snow. Oh, and they did tell me that pets will be able to experience weather just like Sims. If your cats or dogs go out in heavy snow, you might only see their tail as they navigate snowdrifts. The Sims 3 Seasons is looking awesome! You are not going to be disappointed.
I asked Mike if he’d be willing to give you all his experience of working on The Sims 3 Seasons and showing it ag gamescom. He said, absolutely!
