A project that shapes my life : The EA Sims series


How it inspires me:

After playing Sims 2, I fell in love in building houses for my Sims and I realised that I have a passion in space design and as a result I decided to take Space and Interior Design in Polytechnic. While I was in Polytechnic, I learnt 3D-modelling, subsequently I started making custom content for my Sims. I started with making simple pattern to furniture and eventually clothing. After which, I wonder if I could further enhance the game play by creating mods for it and bought me here, Interactive Media in ADM.

The Sims game series have help me discover myself. It makes me wonder what kind of game I will make in the future that will be better than the Sims series.

The Sims 2 is a 2004 strategic life simulation video game developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts. The Sims 3 (June 2, 2009) is the third major title in the life simulation video game developed by The Sims Studio and published by Electronic Arts. It is the sequel to the best-selling computer game, The Sims 2.
