If you're familiar with The Sims, then you know that you can download different skins so your family members can change clothes or look like different people altogether.

Anyway, I came upon this website, did some searching, and just happened to find Manny (among other computer/video game characters).
http://www.strategyplanet.com/thesims/skins/vg9.shtml

It looks like you have to be registered/sign up in order to be able to download the skin. I haven't tried it yet. But anyone who does could post screenshots of Manny's adventures in The Sims.

I've actually found some other adventure game character skins so when I get a chance to organize my links I'll post a list of what I've found.

I was sure one of these things would get out sometime.
I mean sims is the best selling game with 6 expansion packs and millions of skins for every actor, actress, known people, tv's games etc....

I don't like sims (find it boring :D )but the idea of putting manny eating with metche and have friends as Salvator, lola etc is funny. If there were home-skins for the land of the dead it would be fun....;)

Lol. That's a good idea.

I also like the ones from Monkey Island!

Wow ,that's great :). In Poland there are all expansion packs from The Sims. I have original Sims and one expansion pack called Livin' It up. Maybe I 'll download this skin.

I've managed to find another set of Guybrush skins and one of Indiana Jones. Like I said, soon as I get those links organized ...

Very nice Sims stuff there, haven't played it for a while but I'll give the game a go for a bit now with Manny.

I have that skin. Theres a few problems with it, or at least, on my pc.

- Manny's head is too slanted. Its not in the same position as in GF.
- His clothes seem to be white.

I an sure most have seen the image where there is a catfight . Imagine putting Manny and Domino getting angry and start a fight (the best would be an item named "scythe" :p )

Honest to god that's a pretty poor Sim of Manny. I once saw a totally awesomely cool one of Manny that looked exactly like him in his business suit, and another one in his reaper cloak! Lost the URL though :( . Maybe I'll scrounge around my computer and find it eventually.

please do.
i only made those poor skins cause i really wanted to play with manny in the sims, but no one made any skins.

so if you find any good looking skins tell us. :)

You're the one who made the Manny skin? Small world!

Over at Sierra's official Gabriel Knight forum, I was posting some pictures of Gabriel Knight's adventures in The Sims and Manny popped in for a visit. Here are two pictures:

I thought it was perfect for Manny. ;)
