Facebook + Sims + Kudos = SimSocial

This is fun. As part of the hype up to Sims 3's release, Electronic Arts have done a facebook app inspired by the Sims. Simsocial is basically a turn-based single-character life-simulator, which seems terribly derived from Positech's lovely Kudos 2. And for good reason, as the about file reveals: EA commissioned Cliffski to make something based on Kudos 2 for it. It's similar but different - there's Sims 3 elements plugged in plus some Facebook social networking, minus Jamie McKelvie's lovely art and a load of Kudos' complexities. Either way, it's accessible, free and only a click away. Assuming you've a facebook account, anyway. And, no, I won't be your friend. I'm barely my friends' friend.
