  +
In an interview, [[Grant Rodiek]] first mentioned Twinbrook, saying;
  +
  +
"The town of Twinbrook is absolutely beautiful and designed specifically for players. You will clearly see how our world-designing team has improved when you discover Twinbrook."[http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.melty.fr%2Fles-sims-3-ambitions-entretien-exclusif-actu32482.html]

Twinbrook stresses the new [[career|professions]] and [[skill]]s introduced in ''Ambitions'', such as the [[Stylist]] profession or [[Inventing]] skill.
  +

According to a Gamespot hands-on, Twinbrook 'is a fictitious bayou town not unlike a backwoods suburb of Louisiana.'<ref name="Spotlight On">[http://www.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/thesims3ambitions/news.html?sid=6260981&om_act=convert&om_clk=newsfeatures&tag=newsfeatures%3Btitle%3B1 Spotlight On - The Sims 3: Ambitions]</ref> Players who attended the UK hands on event report that Twinbrook 'is a huge new town, which had been flooded, and is now half-swamp half-town. The swampy areas are very dank and misty. The other side of Twinbrook has brand new shops such as the laundromat, The tattoo parlour and stylist shop and much more.

Interestingly, all the premade deceased Sims in Twinbrook are pale green if resurrected, suggesting they are some sort of undead or that they have some kind of alien genes, another reference to [[Strangetown]].

Twinbrook is a town which shipped with The Sims 3: Ambitions.

In its heyday, Twinbrook was a small industrial town at the mouth of the Simislaus creeks. Years later, the dam was built and it changed everything for the town. Now with an influx of professionals, artists, and inventors living around the Sim-made lake, Twinbrook is experiencing a rebirth. How will life in this eclectic community turn out?[1]

Description

In an interview, Grant Rodiek first mentioned Twinbrook, saying;

"The town of Twinbrook is absolutely beautiful and designed specifically for players. You will clearly see how our world-designing team has improved when you discover Twinbrook."[1]

Twinbrook stresses the new professions and skills introduced in Ambitions, such as the Stylist profession or Inventing skill.

According to a Gamespot hands-on, Twinbrook 'is a fictitious bayou town not unlike a backwoods suburb of Louisiana.'[2] Players who attended the UK hands on event report that Twinbrook 'is a huge new town, which had been flooded, and is now half-swamp half-town. The swampy areas are very dank and misty. The other side of Twinbrook has brand new shops such as the laundromat, The tattoo parlour and stylist shop and much more. I really enjoyed having a look around Twinbrook, and the place looks really great.' They've also re-done most of the rabbit holes, such as the diner.'[3] It may be assumed that Simslaus Creek references Stanislaus County, a county located in California or the Stanislaus River located in the mentioned county.

Interestingly, all the premade deceased Sims in Twinbrook are pale green if resurrected, suggesting they are some sort of undead or that they have some kind of alien genes, another reference to Strangetown.
