Late Wednesday night from its San Francisco-based Summer Preview event, Electronic Arts pulled back the curtain on a more playable version of MySims for Wii than we've previously seen. For fans still unfamiliar with the project, think Sims, except with a cuddly new makeover complete with Mii-like character designs and environments to fit, and, of course, Wii pointer-enhanced controls. The premise is pretty straightforward, but so far so good. We've got a few more details on how everything works below.
MySims begins with at the character creation level. You're treated to a very basic 3D model and given the tools, combined wIth the power of the Wii remote, to fully customize it. It's not as detailed as we initially suspected. You won't be able to use the remote to manually draw facial features, for example. However, you can with a simple point and tap of the A button modify the looks of eyes, mouths, noses, hairstyles, skin tones, and more. And on top of that, you can tweak outfits to your liking. You don't so much pick a specific set of eyes or nose as you simply click on these facial features and tap the button, at which point the next selection appears. The mechanic, like just about every option in MySims for Wii, is designed to be immediately accessible, but it's also robust enough -- you will be able to create dramatically different Sims characters using the features at your disposal.
