Alternative Artwork Celebrates 15 Years Of The Sims

Remember the emotional rollercoaster that was raising your first Sims family: those pangs of excitement when one of the digital clan did something extraordinary, swiftly followed by the deep despair of wishing they’d stop trying to set themselves on fire?
 
Clearly, we've got a lot of time for the PC classic, but perhaps not quite as much as Geek-Art and French Paper Art Club, as the two are now joining forces along with Electronic Arts to mark the game’s 15th anniversary with a major art show in Paris next month.
 
Going on display at l’Espace Oppidum on 4 and 5 February, the one-off show will feature work from 15 artists (all fans of the game) worldwide, with each art piece putting an entirely unique spin on the simulator. We really couldn't think of a better way to encapsulate  one and a half decades of utter life simulation brilliance.
 
Let’s just hope the Sims developers are less calamitous at blowing out candles than the characters themselves.
