The tale is an old one – the town thrived and someone with Essences helped that by creating buildings that were both unique and entertaining for the residents.
That's right, Essences; it's a unique ability to change the structures. When the original builder moved away, the town was lost. Sims began to move away. But rumor has it that a new builder is coming to this wayward small town, and Sims are returning in anticipation of a thriving, happy city once more.
Ok, maybe it is not an old story but that is the backdrop for MySims, from EA. This is yet another version of a town-building simulation but unlike SimCity or even Sim Societies, with a decided LEGO twist.
