I just tried the Spore Creature Creator for the first time last night. Spore, for those who don’t know, Spore is “a multi-genre “massively single-player online game” under development by Maxis and designed by Will Wright. It allows a player to control the evolution of a species from its beginnings as a unicellular organism, through development as an intelligent and social land-walking creature, to levels of interstellar exploration as a spacefaring culture. It has drawn wide attention for its massive scope, and its use of open-ended gameplay and procedural generation.” (Description taken from Wikipedia simply because I couldn’t begin to describe what Spore is going to be).
Anyway, it was really interesting, really fun, and it convinced me to pre-order so I can hold my copy as well as get the full version of the creature creator. Below are a copy of shots of the first creature I’ve created:
