Wright On Sporn: "Some of it’s really good"

The Associated Press has managed to squeeze a comment on Spornography out of Will Wright:

"When you give players creative control, you have to expect they're going to do the unexpected. Some of it's really good for what they were shooting for. It's amazingly explicit, especially when those creations are animated. We just have to make sure those people aren't messing up the experience for others."

Which, while not approval as such, certainly isn't damning the monstrous penis-beasts and sodomy monsters the internet seems so fond of. Good on 'im. Unfortunately they don't ask whether he's made any Sporn himself, which means we're duty bound to speculate wildy that he has, and that it was unimaginably disgusting.

Wright also offers up some hints as to Spore's future:

"From day one, we've been thinking about Spore as a brand... Spore is an intersection between science and creativity. You can apply that to almost any format. I don't want to limit Spore to just games. There's a lot of other activities including books, movies, TV or whatever you can imagine that we could take it in if we think of it as a brand. What that could look like is yet to be determined."

Spore: The Movie, eh? Bet he just wants to see a horde of Penis-Beasts on the silver screen.
