STM 2.06(A) – 85% – The Underdog?

85% is as fast as production can go for an episode of this sort. There’s still a possibility of a late-May 2015 release.

You also still have time to [vote on the Specter Yard Case Verdict].

Where are the other Machinima Directors? They are probably off playing the Sims 4, or moved on to other pursuits. After all, there are many other hobbies much easier than machinima, so who can blame them for switching to something more relaxing?

Why the Fringe is Hyde still pressing on with video production with a Sims 2 game that’s more than a decade old, while he could do something much easier with his limited leisure?

Or is this not surprising, given his tendency NOT to give up on old games, especially those that gave him particularly good memories?

Perhaps there has indeed been a overall decline in interest in Machinima, both on the parts of the directors and viewers in general.

Hyde knows that STM‘s popularity comes largely from the lead-in video, “18 Ways to Kill Sims”, a privilege that many other directors do not have.

Viewers also come via his bizarre Sims blog (which you are reading now).

While featuring Underdog premade characters from Underdog Neighborhoods, and storylines that makes you question many things you ever believed about the Sims world, STM is at the right place at the right time.
