PC Gamer Previews Showtime, Interviews Ben Bell

PC Gamer has posted a preview of The Sims 3 Showtime:

To get the big gigs, your Sim has to somehow make contact with a venue owner and persuade them to let them have a try-out. Once this happens though, the game really ramps up. From here on in, players can start building their own custom stage sets, complete with themes, special effects, fireworks, light shows and so on.

That’s not all though, they’ve also interviewed executive producer Ben Bell. The interview focuses on the games and expansion packs in general, so don’t expect to learn anything about Showtime, but it’s an interesting read:

PC Gamer: How do you pick the expansions?

Ben: It’s a pretty organic process. One of the fun things about working on The Sims is that you can reflect on your own life and the ideas you find are totally relevant to the game. Very few people have fortunately been at war, so there aren’t that many human beings who can relate to that experience. Everyone can relate to the idea of wanting to be a star or basically to being a human being with basic human needs, so the first step is we look inward, at ourselves.
