Hey! Did you know that for years now, fans of the Sims have been creating publications based around their favorite game? Yup! That’s right!
Although these publications are produced by amateurs who are just doing this all as a hobby, you’d be amazed at how slick, professional and well made they are. In fact, some are so well done, if you didn’t know any better, you’d think you had picked up a copy of Architectural Digest or Vogue Magazine instead!
Okay, so now you’re wondering what type of content these publications produce. Well, they tend to mostly fall into two categories–fashion and architectural magazines keeping the sims community up to date on the latest CC being released by their favorite creators. With these types of magazines, you can expect to find a lot of glamorous fashion spreads, interior decorating shots and other pictorials showcasing CC items in all their glory and letting readers know where to find them.
In addition to fashion and decor magazines, there are a few publications that fall into the “other” category, such as Super Llama Man Villain Origins – Ace Paradox and A Sim’s Life: Toxic Future, two comic books.
Now, this is all very exciting, but there is some good news and bad news. The bad news is that most of these magazines are no longer being updated. The good news is that many of them have been archived at Issuu.com, so even though they may not still be around, you can still read any back issues you may have missed. Below is a list of what’s currently available there:
So, if you’re ever in a reading mood, check these publications out. And who knows? You might be inspired to strike out and create a publication of your own!
