The Friday Abstract (II): Spore Creature Creator



If creating fantastic creatures, great and small, and watching them evolve, play, fight and breed is something you are interested in, then may I interest you in Electronic Arts' Creature Creator PC game? The free trial Creature Creator game is a design tool and part of a much larger--and highly anticipated--game called Spore, created by Will Wright, the brains behind such hits as The Sims and SimCity, to be released in September 2008.

From Macworld.com, reporter Peter Cohen writes:

Spore Creature Creator is a design tool that lets you craft your own alien critter. It’s a small component of Spore, an upcoming game from EA designed by Will Wright, the legendary creator of The Sims and Sim City. And in Spore, you affect the evolution of a race of beings from single-celled organisms swimming around in tidal pools all the way up to their emergence as a space-faring civilization. It’s the ultimate “God” game from one of the genre’s pioneers.


In a moment of divine creativity, I created (make that, assembled) a little alien creature I call Hugo and son, who are featured in the video above. Below is Rico, of the horned-knee creatures.

Spore is awesome the game lets you travel the galaxy. There are over 500,000 unique planets to explore! That's just unbelievable! Also you can create any type of creature and all the creatures you run into are from other players. No other game can claim this.. The best part of this game is the space phase, you could spend a lifetime exploring all the planets and meeting new creatures.. This game is limitless, there is no other game that comes close to this one.
Anyway, if you have time, take a visit to my Download Games website.
