If you have been playing PC games since the ’90s, chances are you have purchased at least one Will Wright game. The esteemed creator of games such as The Sims and Spore has not really been in the spotlight as much since leaving EA back in 2009. However, he has actually been hard at work developing a new project. In fact, Will Wright is looking for beta testers for this new game, and he is turning to fans and modders of The Sims series to give him a hand.
In a message reaching out to both The Sims 4 Nexus and Mod The Sims, Wright extends his invitation to players looking to help shape the gaming landscape with memories. He is in need of enthusiastic content creators to help make his concept a reality.
Suitable applicants will be joining a private pre-launch community that promises some fun stuff. Those who sign up get to go behind the scenes and collaborate together with the developers. Of course, you will earn credit for your contribution to the game.
Making your mark
Part of the survey asks if respondents are able to create 3D or audio content, as well as their proficiency with industry tools. The likes of Unity, Unreal, Maya, and Photoshop are part of the conversation. Creators who have experience with Roblox, Second Life, Spore, and The Sims will also be suitable.
This is likely something to do with Proxi, which is a mobile game that is being developed by Gallium Studios. According to the studio, Proxi is an AI simulation game that allows users to interact with their own subconscious. It involves content creator tools that can help integrate assets into the game.
Perhaps Proxi is no longer just a mobile title. With what Will Wright has done with The Sims and more, it will be interesting to see where all this leads.
