Spore Creature Comforts on June 17th

You put the sexual in asexual reproduction, baby.

Exciting news for fans of exciting news: EA have announced they’re releasing a creature creator for the forthcoming Will-Wright-Is-Clever-’em-up Spore. It’ll be available on June 17th, which strikes me as a very specific sort of date that’s simultaneously a long way away. Perhaps EA have some manner of secret plan they need a distraction for? Pah. Who cares. They can march robotic death legions into our capitals as long as we get hands on with the evolutionary-putty of Spore. The freely-available demo gives you 25% of the parts of the full game, while if you pay $9.99 you get the full version. The results of both can be inputted into the final game. While the $9.99 thing strikes me as a somewhat embarrassingly flagrant attempt to secure extra monies from the Spore-hungry masses, the facts they’re importable means that the even before the game comes out the user-created-content machine is running, meaning the universe is going to be pre-populated with all manner of penis-with-eight-legs creatures. Shame the pack can’t be a pre-order incentive or something.
