25 anni di SimCity 20.10.14

L'anniversario del capostipite dei videogiochi gestionali diventa l'occasione per analizzare la filosofia, il successo e la genesi di SimCity assieme al suo creatore Will Wright.

[...] SimCity was a hugely influential game. Popularizing a genre of "software toys" that presented players with an interactive, complex world writ little, gamers growing up in the '90s may remember a time when any new PC title from Maxis (the company Wright founded with partner Jeff Braun) bearing the prominent 'SIM' prefix promised endless hours of play time that wasn’t about winning or losing, but experimentation and discovery. The Sim series also represents a philosophy about design, and the role of play in our learning process.
