Has anybody noticed how the architecture, characters, and movement of The Sims resembled Sanitarium?

Did anyone else notice this? Is it the same game engine?

The game engine used by the Sims is custom made for the game per wikipedia.

There is a fascinating article on Sanitarium here.

but all I could find is that they used these programs: Critical tools: 3D Studio MAX, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, Cool Edit Pro, DeBabelizer Pro, FileMaker Pro, Inprise's Delphi, Inprise's Paradox, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Word, Smacker video codec, Sound Forge, Strata MediaPaint, Visual C++, Visual SourceSafe.
