The Lure of Homeless Sims

Usually, your goal in The Sims 3 is to create a character and have it live out a pleasant, socially successful life in a well-appointed home. Robin Burkinshaw‘s Sims live in a weedy park at the center of town, broke, friendless, and looking for love. Burkinshaw chronicles the lives of this homeless family on a highly readable blog. It’s easy to get drawn in to the tragicomic lives of Alice and Kev, the father-and-daughter duo at the heart of the blog. It works for a lot of the same reasons Twilight enthralled Levitt; it’s a “fantasy world that is absurd, and yet somehow vaguely believable.” [%comments]
