Spore - from Atom to Universe
Holy smokes. This is absolutely amazing on just so many levels.

I don't think I've EVER been so excited about a video game before!

Will Wright talking at the Game Developer's Conference about 'Spore', which looks like it could possibly be the best video game ever.

Evidently, this is a video from the Game Developer's Conference (March, 2005).

He came back and spoke about it at E3 in May of last year, as well:

Spore looks incredible... if only because of how simple the underlying mechanics actually are. It looks fantastic for sure, but the best bit is the way that the computer will work out how your creatures walk and behave based on a set of rules.

Rules build on rules and you end up with a very complicated multi-leveled system going... which is pretty much how life works.

I would love to see if they include any level of genetic mutation in the creatures, so you can not just specify the creatures, but also breed them together and play with thier genetics.

I'm trying not to get too excited, cos I'm a cynic and I'm so used to being let down by games.

O. M. G.

But I think they should have stuck with the title "Sim Everything."

I heard a rumor somewhere that this might come out for handhelds. Spore + Nintendo DS + me on the train = happy.

Yeah. Will does games pretty good. But best ever? Likely not.

Remember, Will makes toys more than games. And while they are fun, they also tend to get abused by the publishers. Sims2? How many expansions so far? That's what I thought.

I wish Maxis wasn't purchased by EA. :(
