Licensed from Electronic Arts, Open for Business, the third expansion pack for The Sims 2, was developed for the Mac by Aspyr Studios, Aspyr’s internal development team. “Now your Sims can create their own businesses. They can design their own clothing boutique, beauty salon, florist, high-end electronics shop, bustling restaurant chain, or virtually any other type of business. Hire your staff as the business grows and put talented Sims to work making toys, running the register, crafting floral bouquets, giving sales pitches, or manufacturing robots.
