Chances are youve escaped reality (at least temporarily) through The Sims. One of the first life simulation video games, it allows players to live vicariously through virtual charactersand its played by people the world over. Which is why the characters speak a fictional language that everyone can understand. Its called Simlish, and theres a method to the gibberish. We join voice actors Krizia Bajos and Scott Whyte at a recording studio inside Electronic Arts in Redwood, California, to see and hear how the language was created. If you have a really good ear for languages, you just might be able to say How are you? in Simlish by the end of this video.
