E3: Wright On Spore

On its influences, on scientific creativity, science as a brand, and on the amazing success of the Creature Creator. Top of the PC charts since it was released, apparently. Plus, why they released it early. Go, Will:


  1. Nitre says:

    My god, i have my doubts about the game, but i love Will Wright so much.

  2. Theory says:

    Gametrailer’s E3 intro is incredibly irritating.

  3. Man Raised By Puffins says:

    All Gametrailers intros are immensely annoying. Also, very nice presentation.

  4. Heliocentric says:

    Spore isnt the game i hoped it’d be, but it looks like it’ll be very good at what it does. its not for me i dont think but i’m glad it exists.

  5. skalpadda says:

    I love how enthusiastic he sounds about all this. He has every reason to be of course, it’s looking fantastic :)

  6. DSX says:

    I liked the companion cube spore creature they showed, classic. IGN has a new E3 08 trailer up, and a new in-game trailer as well. Linky Linky.

  7. Rosti says:

    Hey, I remember when they nerfed Chemistry. Physics is still overpowered though.

  8. Bema says:

    Great presentation.

  9. Sithinious says:

    Will Wright = 110G

  10. RichPowers says:

    In physics’ defense, Rosti, balancing subatomic particles following the addition of the quantum chromodynamics skill tree hasn’t been easy.

  11. Mattress says:

    God, you could listen to Will Wright talk all day, couldn’t you?

  12. Wildbluesun says:


    Under the bit where he was talking about beautiful things that people have created, as well.

    That’s awesome.
