Spore, the next big game from Sim-creator Will Wright, is on its way. It promises to big, friendly, easy to get into, and fun for the entire family. But you’re going to have to wait until September because it’s not out until then.
Do you want six eyes? How about four noses? An ear where the mouth would normally be and a mouth where the armpits are? Sure! Why not, you’re the “creator” here!In fact, that’s one of the ways you can view your time in Spore Creature Creator: if you were given the power to craft your very own species, what would you do? Graphically, Spore Creature Creator looks a treat and shows off just what the Spore engine will do nicely. Feeling like a cross between a dress-up doll and a jar of Playdo, I’m sure you’ll find that anyone in your family – from ages three to 99 – will get into this without needing to grab for any sort of a learning curve. The sad part about Spore Creature Creator is its availability: good luck finding it. Creature Creator was available in a few of the newspapers last weekend but good luck finding it in Australia otherwise. It’s listed for release in another newspaper later this month but other than that, you’ll have to settle with ordering from the EA New Zealand store or playing with the trial.
There are some people who will complain and say that this is just a demo and not much fun can be had from it. But I challenge those people because I think that anyone can get a smile, a hint of joy, some element of laughter when they create their creature.And if Spore is anywhere near as simple and funny and otherwise brilliant as Creature Creator is, it’ll be hard to top it as game of the year.
