FLASHBACK <<<

Dear friends and readers of the Loewe Legacy,

SURPRISE!!! When I viewed the results of the poll in the post dedicated to the 4th birthday of the LL last week, I felt very moved. Even after the six-months-long hiatus, all of you still wish the story goes on. So, although I am not officially returning, I came up with an idea in order to provide you with a little reading material for this summer.

What you see above is the teaser poster for the upcoming retrospective series of nine short episodes dedicated to the character of Chloe Thomas at the Dribbledine Sports Academy. Are you excited? I hope you are! However, I have to warn those of you who aren’t caught up with the main storyline as the FLASHBACK <<< contains a major spoiler. I have also created a stand-alone page dedicated to the DSA featuring extra content as a support & teaser material for this series. I hope you will enjoy this special treat. Dribbledine Sports Academy awaits!

FUN FACT: The Dribbledine Sports Academy main building and campus, as well as the looks and character of some of the DSA students & staff, were inspired by the Blackwell Academy from my favorite game Life is Strange. Since it’s obviously a fan build inspired by another video game, I never intended to feature any of it in this story but because I spent quite some time building it I’ve decided to use it in the end. The images are intentionally blurred to give the retrospective series FLASHBACK <<<  a similar graphic style of the original game.

Celebrating 4 years of the Loewes

My dear fellow Simmers, today is a special day!

Four years have passed since the day when I published my very first post and my very first page. That’s insane.


Kate and Prim, September 1999, Appaloosa Plains


Nearly two years have passed since the day I published the teaser to the episodic series of short clips entitled Shards Of My Past. That’s tragic.


Mary and baby Kate, August 1971, Appaloosa Plains


More or less six months have passed since the day I finished editing the first video of the series BUT since it was initially thought of as of a goodbye to my beloved founder Kate Loewe and she’s still alive in my game I haven’t uploaded it yet. That’s shameful and great at the same time.


Kate, July 1979, Appaloosa Plains


You see, I have this ‘special’ bond with this Sim and I just simply cannot bring myself to play the game anymore because her life bar is full and if I start playing again she’ll die. And I cannot do that. That’s weird.

So what should I do? That’s the question. And I need you to help me answer it.


Before you submit your vote in the poll below, I would like to let you all know that I have quit my job in Italy in December and moved back to my home country at the end of February with a big plan – to start my own fashion brand. That’s one of the main reasons why I haven’t been active in the Sims community in the past months.

As you can imagine, making such a big change isn’t always easy so since my life is currently very busy (leaving business apart, I’m lucky to have a big real-life family), I have no spare time to dedicate to the Loewe Legacy at the moment. Personally speaking, I have never planned to abandon my little pixel family completely, but I won’t be able to play and write as often as I was able to while in Italy. I hope you will understand the lack of my activity, but don’t worry, I won’t disappear completely. I have actually written the intro of Chapter Four, I only miss the pictures, however, I’m not completely sure if I want to start another chapter if I’m not sure I will ever finish it.

I know there are my loyal readers that are still waiting for the first episode of Chapter Four.  You – yes you – are the reason that keeps me going and I don’t want to disappoint any of you, my dear friends, fellow Simmers and readers of the LL.

Alright, taking all this info into account, could you please help me decide what to do?

Thank you!
