The Sims Community Challenge: August (+GIVEAWAY CLOSED)

Welcome to August’s The Sims Community Challenge!

Firstly, I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part and got involved in our first ever The Sims Community Challenge last month. The team and I were blown away by how well it was received and how many people entered. You can check out the June & July showcase here.

Have you ever wondered what makes Mrs Crumplebottom seem so angry all the time? No matter what, she always seems to be ready for a fight. Maybe it’s her neighbour’s keeping her up all night, or she is fed up with things that have been going on in Henford-on-Bagley. However, what if there was another reason? What if Mrs Crumplebottom actually had a secret life and being angry all the time was just a cover-up?

For this month’s challenge, I’ve teamed up with fellow staff member Jazzy for this challenge, and we can’t wait to see your challenge entries! The theme for this month, is all about Mrs Agnes Crumplebottom’s secret life! Your challenge is to furnish Mrs Crumplebottom’s house and write a small backstory as to what her secret life is! You can keep it simple or make it as crazy and out of this world as you want. Just keep in mind that the shell you will be furnishing needs to reflect the backstory you create.

Did we mention we are also giving away a code for The Sims 4 Cottage Living on your chosen platform? All you have to do is take part in the challenge, and we will be selecting one entry from our top five as our overall challenge winner. Like last month, we will also be doing a showcase featuring some of our favourite entries too!

Example Entry

Backstory: You see her walking around town, carrying her infamous handbag, but always wondering why Mrs Crumplebottom always so angry. However, what you don’t know is that she is actually a very kind and caring person who spends her time at home caring for a variety of  chickens, cows, llamas and other wildlife that come to visit and stay with her. When she isn’t tending to the animals needs, you will find her nestled away in a corner working on her next knitting or cross-stitch project.
