                                      DID YOU KNOW?

                                      Simulation games are a big sub-genre of the video game industry. It has various types like famous games where players can experience racing, flying or shooting. There are even animal simulator games where you can be a cat or a goat. Some games even allow players to experience different occupations since there are farming, driving, and tycoon games. These games make up about a third of the gaming market. The popular everyday-life simulation game, The Sims, alone has evolved into a franchise with at least 10 games since the first game was released in 2000. Based on Maxis’ top-selling SimCity game, the Sims was created by designer Will Wright to simulate what it felt like to rebuild his life after he lost his home in the Oakland firestorm in 1991. Two years after its release, The Sims became one of the best selling simulation games for PC, and in 2005, had sold more than 16 million copies worldwide. In 2018, a mobile version of the well-loved simulation game was released.

                                      Titles like the Sims, Farming Simulator and X-Plane continue to carry the simulation games flag in an era where most players choose to spend time on mobile online battle arena games. Luckily so. But did you know that one of the most famous simulators in the world, the Advanced Lawnmower Simulator game, was released only as an April Fool’s Joke in 1988? LOL. It’s true. Your Sinclair, a British game review magazine for Sinclair computers, released ALS as a parody to the rising industry of simulator games. The writers thought it would be funny to have such a dreaded chore-based game but instead, they gave birth to one of the most well-loved games in history. ALS even had rip-offs like Advanced Lawnmower Simulator: The Trilogy, and Football Junior. In 2015, the game was re-released with better graphics, audio, and gameplay.
