Build-A-Youth: The Sims 4's Character Creator Demo

Make those horrible young things look foolish

No matter what's removed or added or changed or bro-ised with The Sims 4, we can be fairly certain it'll allow one thing: making goofy-looking folks. But lawks a lummy, Maxis have only gone and released that part for free! The 'Create A Sim' character creator has been yanked out of the full game to make a demo (or we can treat it as simply a cool toy for everyone to play with). Nab it from Origin. This came out last week, but we overlooked it in all the fuss and bother of Gamescom. Luckily, pulling silly faces is timeless.

It's not the full character creator, only letting y'all make folks in the Young Adult phase of their lives, not littluns or fogies. Still, who hasn't wanted to drag a young person's face and forcefully reshape it like meaty clay? Then dress them up in stupid hats and ugly dresses and give them daft beards and make them walk like wankers and talk like fools and drag and pull and yank on their faces distorting their horrible young faces how do they get to be so young why do they deserve it here wear this stupid earring what are you going to do about it WEAR IT we were all young once you know you're nothing special what are you doing with your lives your time is so precious you'll regret this you know you'll regret it all and you can roll with it but never change it what happens happens and all we can do is try to live with it now try on this blazer and purse your lips.

The Sims 4 will be released in a few weeks, on September 4.
