It’s not another Sims 2 expansion pack — this time Aspyr is producing an all-new Sims game for the Mac, called The Sims Life Stories. It’s expected to be released next month for $39.99.
The Sims Life Stories is the latest installment of the enormously popular game franchise where you make decisions that affect the lives of simulated people — Sims — as they go about their lives. You help them get established professionally, develop lasting personal relationships and even decorate their homes.
The Sims Life Stories is what happens when the enormously popular game franchise The Sims meets a serial drama like The O.C. — it tells the stories of Riley Harlow and vincent Moore, two different Sims at different crossroads in their love lives. The game features a “comic romantic plot” that unravels through 12 chapters.
The game just recently was finished for the PC and is being published by EA. The quick turnaround time for this Mac conversion can partly be explained by the fact that Aspyr Studios is the game’s original developer.
Aspyr’s Web site has not been updated with information about the new game, but the company is expecting to take pre-orders soon.
