So, I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts today, and it was a story that the host had done for a different show some years ago, but it's very relevant here.
Dis anyone know if +Henry Lowood
knows about and has been archiving Glitch?
I can't see how he'd have missed it... :)
Listening to 99% Invisible (153- Game Over (R))
<p>A few months before the end of the world, everyone was saying their goodbyes.<br />
The world that was ending was The Sims Online, an online version of The Sims. Even though The Sims was one of the most popular computer games ever made, the massively-multiplayer online version did not do well.<br />
Despite rebranding the game as EA-Land, sales did not improve, and EA Games decided to pull the plug.</p>
<p>This is a collaboration with Robert Ashley from A Life Well Wasted and originally presented on Snap Judgment in 2010.</p>
