The Sims 4 could also be a life simulation recreation, but it surely will get fairly bizarre. Sims can go to work as an accountant, get devoured by a Cowplant, date the Grim Reaper, and change into a Star Wars character. One of many recreation’s weirder additions of late is Bonehilda, a longtime legacy character. The most recent Stuff Pack is paranormal-themed, and gamers are attuning themselves to the afterlife to allow them to hang around with the very best skeleton maid in all of gaming.
Bonehilda is each creepy (she’s a skeleton, and a continuing reminder of the inevitable skeleton warfare) and very useful. She fulfills the roles of a butler or a nanny, caring for Sim kids and cleansing up the home. She dates again to the unique The Sims and its Makin’ Magic growth pack from 2003. Since then, she’s proven up in The Sims 3 and now The Sims 4. (For some motive, she continues the custom from earlier video games of not doing laundry, however that’s extremely relatable.)
There are solely two downsides to this family helper. One is that human maids are terrified of Bonehilda and have a tendency to flee the property. It’s disappointing that there isn’t solidarity occurring there, but it surely’s comprehensible. The opposite unlucky factor is a carryover from previous video games: Bonehilda can’t maintain any liquids she drinks, since she doesn’t have a abdomen, so they only hit the ground. At the very least she’ll ultimately clear it up, in order that’s thoughtful.
It’s even doable to romance Bonehilda and WooHoo along with her. Some gamers are dashing to summon Bonehilda by way of arcane, supernatural means after which wooing her as rapidly as doable to allow them to exchange their Sim’s boring, regular, living-person romance choices with a skeleton maid. One ritual even means that you can tackle Bonehilda’s kind! The one factor higher than one Bonehilda is 2 Boneshilda.
If followers take Bonehilda into The Sims 4, there’s a scary shock awaiting them: a human model of Bonehilda, which is intriguing. Hilda — or Meathilda? — is a brand new factor for gamers to puzzle over and costume up, and an inspiration for fan content material.
In the end, Bonehilda is a small addition to The Sims 4, particularly in comparison with latest expansions with new neighborhoods, universities, and constructing options. However these small appearances from beloved characters, and long-running cleaning soap opera storylines sprinkled all through the mundanity of on a regular basis life, carry The Sims to life. Or, on this case, undeath.
