But how many other possible titles could have user created content in it?

If this does all that is it promises, this will be the most advanced game, eva.
And it seems to be a MMO Simulator or something.
I think the universe has a ton of planets, some of them have other people creatures. But I just think you download the creatures, otherwise you could be found and your civilization destroyed in half an hour by someone else :D

Looks very cool!
BTW: aren't you a mac boy, legameboy?

BTWW: I think they'll change the name.

I don't know. Sounds like an interesting idea but Will Wright's stuff tends to be hit or miss. Probably depends on how much stuff he decides to seed the game with and weither the stuff he does seed is any fun or not.

It's true that Will Wright is a hit-or-miss kind of guy, but I'm going to buy this game no matter what people say. ^_^

I've got faith in Will, he has great experience which he has accumulated over the years, and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us. The only thing that scares me is EA, the evil empire that bought Maxis and the insidious machine that will publish "Spore."

@TiE: I'm a Mac User, but a PC Gamer. :P

@IG: Will said (during GDC) that the only bottleneck for this game was his imagination. Now that we know that that is out of the way... well... :D

EDIT: Another good article (http://www.gamasutra.com/gdc2005/features/20050315/postcard-diamante.htm).

That sounds awesome. I'm probably gonna play it. Let's see how long the eco-system survives when you put Hutts in it...

What a slacker.... can't be bothered to make his OWN universe for his game so he makes us do it for him! Outrageous!

I'm gonna make those strider things from the Dark Crystal.... they will run circles around your Hutts (as long as there are no cliffs to fall off....) :D

I will create a race of three-headed sea-horses with spikes for hands and a stomch on their tales and they shall learn the secrets of the universe. :)

@ Astro: Spore is a hard game to explain. You need to find time to read the articles. :p

Spore is a game which will take you trough an entire life cycle. The deal is that it's focused on customization (Will has an army of 1337 ninja coders instead of animators etc). Basicly you make everything

The ultimate RPG. :D

"Spore" is just the code-name for the game. Will Wright has been hinting at a game like this for the past few years.

dammit. i was hoping this hadn't reached the swamp yet.

i have decided that i should give up trying to bring in fresh news. you lot all ready know everything.

Looks awesome. Now, about the player-built content; how does that work? Is it like a giant mmorpg, with everybody able to create their own little world within the universe? Or do you simply download other player's content and load it into your game?

But I am so going to create a race of hermaphrodites.

The real question is, is there any new news on Spore?

Answer? No!

They have a little site....http://spore.ea.com/

If EA will not interfere, and only supply them with money....it has a really good shot.

If EA decides they should help....Spore = doomed.

So this game is pretty much about playing god?

Sounds fun. I will be sure to look into this more next year.

*Clicky* (http://www.pqhp.com/cmp/gdctv/)

Scroll down to "Spore" or search for it.
Awesome video.

He shows almost everything between a spore and blowing up planets with a UFO.

That is really sweet. I already want to just sit down with the editor and create monsters :(

Jo
08-17-2005, 02:11 PM
Me too. I agree with ET also, as long as EA doesn't touch it there is hope.

legameboy
08-23-2005, 02:07 AM
No new news, but I suppose that means Will is hard at work. I can't wait until E3 2006 comes along...

swphreak
08-23-2005, 03:59 AM
heh, I doubt we'll get much news til next year, Christmas at the earliest.

I just wish they'd release a demo of the creature editor. I so want to just sit here and play around with it, and create all sorts of monsters.

I love when he kind of moves the spine...thing...of the...thing.

Uh.
Yeah.
It looks so damn smooth!
