Eurogamer: Spore Creature Creator Review

By Kieron Gillen on June 25th, 2008.

This is my favourite Spore Creature, despite being hyper-simple. He looks perpetually worried. I need to care for him.

Britain’s most influential games journalist inspired me to go and review the Spore Creature Creator for Eurogamer. We’ll be doing a RPS Verdict on it soon enough, I suspect, but I’ve already shot my critical wad here. I mainly think it’s a miraculous piece of software, but spend a lot of time analysing the disenters’ reservations with it: “In other words, while the Spore Creature Creator lets you play god, it doesn’t let you be god.” Fancy words ahoy, leavened with the usual nob gags.

EDIT: Since someone requested a creature, here’s all three I screenshoted. Not exactly high art, but they’re mine.

NSFW: A Beginners Guide To Sporn

By Kieron Gillen on June 18th, 2008.

Yeah, your mum is real proud right now.
You give humanity a creative tool, the first thing a human will do is – well – make a tool with it. Since the Spore demo’s release, it’s become a bukkake wave sweeping the web: comedy pornographic images via Spore. Spornography – aka “Sporn”. Has it reached a climax yet? We don’t know, but we think it’s as good a time as any to stop and survey the lie of the land. And, yes, it’s sticky.

Beneath the cut you’ll find gathered a large selection of the phalluses, the pseudo-sex-acts and general disturbing animated parts of the gamers’ subconcious. For God’s sake, don’t click it at work.

The Staring Eyes of Spore

By Kieron Gillen on June 17th, 2008.

The Eyes have it and I have the eyes. Well, I don’t, but Kel Lind of Buttonbasher does. He’s had the full Spore Creator since Friday and has painstakingly provided grabs of all the bits and bobs in the full version. “I figured that your readers might want to check it out, if they’re on the fence on whether to purchase or stick with the demo,” says Kel, figuring correctly. Initial RPS response to them: a tad disappointed by the legs, but bar that, win!

Spore Creature Creator Leaked

By Kieron Gillen on June 15th, 2008.


My first Spore child, made before I realised how to actually scale creatures’ flesh. Anyway – as the title will have strongly hinted – the Spore Creature creator is online. Apparently it appeared on EA’s site briefly before being taken down (There’s a placeholder file there now), but people have nabbed it and it’s available on major torrent sites. Such as this one. First impressions? Even with only a quarter of the complete Spore content, it’s an incredible piece of software. More of my first creatures beneath the cut…

Spore: Creature Video Rampage

By Kieron Gillen on June 10th, 2008.

I'll have you.
We’re a week away from the Spore Creature Creator crawling from the sea of development onto the rocky beach of the marketplace. And it seems some people have it already, as the Spore user video channel is starting to recieve little videos of people’s monstrous beasts. By my count, nineteen in the last day. No phallus-footage yet, but glancing over these first few births is getting me urge to get demiurgic.

Videos of a few of the best, with some theorising what ecological niche they’d fill beneath the cut. I have to use my Biology degree for something, y’know.
