Will the game simville ever be released? I was really wanting to play that
game, it was like "The sims" and "Sim City" all rolled into one.

But then it got shelved.

Anyone have a clue if it will come back to life?

More about : simville

Sorry, no. Simsville closed production about a month before it was due to be
released. The company issued a statement about the game-play not being as
enjoyable as they had hoped. (I believe they even used the word "boring".)

it was boring, lol.

It doesn't seem very similar to TSO to me. I think what I read is that they
went with the better concepts being part of SImcity4 and The Sims 2 and gave
up on the things that made it dull.

They said that once you got beyond decorating offices, there really wasn't
much to do...

Even if none of the problems that made them scrap it existed, it's now
several years since it was in development. Technology changes and improves
all the time, and Simsville wouldn't take advantage of the full capabilities
of today's systems. In addition to being "boring" as one of the other posts
says, it would be dated. It's too late now, it's never coming back to life.
