This news is not directly The Sims related, but it does look like a clone of the game is being made. The german developer Rotobee is working on 'Singles
', a.k.a. 'Living Up
' (which probably reminds many of the Sims' first expansion pack). Little is known of this title, except that the goal is to get a 'Sim' (Mike or Linda), and hook them up with somebody else. It's all about relationships, including sex. It seems to be a somewhat erotic version of The Sims, probably not for our youngest readers. There are 9 screenshots, which are quite harmless. As you can see on them, the interface of the game is really similar to The Sims. Some screenshots can be found at Rotobee's website
. The website WorthPlaying
has recently posted 12 screenshots too, which look quite different (just 3 motive bars, everything's pink). These could be from an earlier version of the game. To check out those, click here
. The game's expected to be released November 2003.
