Sim appears to predict his own death with a grim painting
A Sims 4 player’s Sim appears to have predicted their own death with a morbid artwork completed just before encountering the Grim Reaper.
A player of The Sims 4 shared an in-game screenshot showing that their Sim may have predicted their own death by means of a dark painting. Thanks to the Sims’ clever autonomy, fans of the game have often found their families acting strange or funny, including one player who appeared to see his Sim die after learning of a pregnancy.
Death has been an essential feature of The Sims franchise, with each new iteration of the game offering Sims new and bizarre ways to encounter the Grim Reaper and end their time in this realm. While The Sims 4 got rid of the classic death ladder by removing the pool ladder, the title introduced many other sudden death mechanics, including the ability for Sims to die using a Murphy bed. When a Sim dies, they encounter fan-favorite NPC, the Grim Reaper, and while the character is usually a figure of doom and gloom, with the help of mods and cheats, Sims fans have romanticized the Grim Reaper and even had children with him.
Editor and The Sims 4 Player Wybiek’s screenshot shows that his Sim may have predicted his own death with a strange painting. The user’s Sim is seen lying on the ground with the Grim Reaper hovering nearby, but a recently completed painting still on an easel shows a sleeping cat in a position that mirrors that of the dead Sim. While the painting isn’t too ominous on its own, with the deceased Sim lying nearby, it’s certainly a creepy but funny coincidence.

While the chill paint certainly makes the Sim feel like they knew they would meet death, the game’s AI isn’t quite there yet. The Sims 4 Adds new content regularly with kits and expansions, but The Sims themselves don’t seem to evolve too much outside of learning new interactions and animations. We hope that The Sims 5which is said to be in development, could offer deeper Sim experiences and interactions, and as events are queued in-game, it’s entirely possible that future Sims could “predict” their own death.
wybiek is hilarious The Sims 4 post proves that there is still plenty of fun to be had in the 2014 game, even years after its release. The title is refreshed with new content drops and gameplay tweaks, but a lot of the game’s appeal comes from the Sims themselves and the weird situations they can find themselves in. Player’s Sim is unable to befriend The Sims 4‘s Grim Reaper, but the fun coincidence makes it easy to imagine the duo have been planning this for quite some time.
