Press Release

GUILDFORD, UK. 2 June 2010 – Pineapple Dance Studios phenomenon and face of Starman, Andrew Stone, has been immortalised as a Sim and will be available to download globally via The Sims 3 Exchange.

Seen as the embodiment of ambition and determination, the creators of The Sims have decided to catapult Andrew to global stardom ahead of the release of The Sims 3 Ambitions on June 4th 2010. The Sims is the world’s biggest PC franchise and has sold over 125 million games since its launch in 2000. For ambitious Andrew this marks another milestone on his meteoric rise to success and will open him up to a fan base of millions across the world.

Simified music videos, songs in Simlish and a new global fanbase will be just some of the next steps in his career; ultimately turning a life-long dream into reality. With a new album, iphone apps, countless TV performances and the Pineapple series about to hit the US, there seems to be no stopping Starman’s global domination as he follows in the footsteps of previously Simified singing sensation, Pixie Lott.

“I am so excited about this new project. I mean, Pixie Lott is a huge star so it’s a great achievement for me to be Simified like she has. I know how tough this business is and I am just so grateful that people like my music, like me and want to see more of what I have to offer.” – said Andrew
There will be an exclusive webisode created with behind the scenes footage of Andrew seeing his Sim for the first time and recording his track “I don’t Wanna Dance” in Simlish.

Behind the scenes footage of Starman’s exclusive Simlish performance can be seen at:

The Sims has fulfilled Andrew’s ambitions, now you fulfil yours:
The Sims 3 Ambitions is the latest expansion pack to the best-selling PC game of 2009, The Sims 3. The game allows players to pursue a variety of exciting careers in their Sims’ lives that in turn affect their overall gameplay experience and neighborhood. Careers include a Stylist, Inventor, Fire Fighter, Doctor, Architectural Designer, , Private Investigator and Ghost Hunter. For the first time, players will be in charge of how their Sims’ career progresses and decide if they will work for good or evil, pursue creative endeavors or technical affairs, change the town for the better or wreak havoc on everyone’s homes.
