SPORE

Recommended Posts

Guest Pilau Hands

My little brother just showed me this stuff and gave me these links.

 

For anyone that is into shit like SimCity and other creation games...prepare to lose your job, your girl, stop answering your phone, and get a bucket so you won't have to go all the way to the bathroom. This will be your new full-time job.

 

Go here first and watch the initial Flash.

 

Then, here.

 

The speaker is Will Wright, chief designer and co-founder of Maxis. About an hour long presentation about the game. Skip all around and shit for game play, but damn this looks insane.

 

I don't even have the attention span to put the work in required to make this game awesome...but it looks wild. Start as single-celled, end up the controller of galaxies.

I read an article on Newsweek about this and I flipped. Looks absolutely insane.

 

My question is, and it wasn't mentioned in the article, is it an online multiplayer deal? It'd be fucking sick as hell is the worlds you visited after you develop space travel were other players' planets.

AWESOME:

 

Spore populates the universe with creatures and cities created by players from all over. There's almost nothing in the world that wasn't at some point created by another player. Wright discovered someone else's civilization, a curious four-legged race who carried tridents and lived in cities with pointed walls and towers. What happened next was entirely up to Wright: he decided to try to communicate with the other species using a bizarre Close Encounters style mini-game. His UFO played music and waited for the aliens to respond.

 

Basically, it's not a full-on multiplayer game, but all the stuff people create in the game goes into a database the game uploads/downloads from. So, while you don't get to play galactic war with another player, you do get to interact with everyone else's creations without affecting their gameplay (ie: you don't get your entire creation blown up by some asshole going around fucking shit up for kicks). It's THEIR creations in YOUR universe. This game is fucking insane. Full article.

Ok...

I'm blown away.

That is the ultimate sim game.

And you can actually have a galactic war...

 

In the process players can play out whatever science-fiction cliché they want. Invasion? Supervision? Uplifting? First Contact? Abduction/Cross-Breeding? Diplomacy? The game is what players make of it.
