I love playing god (duh) and one of the best ways to play god coming down the pike is Spore. And now, Maxxis has realased a trial version of the creature creator for said game! If you don’t have your finger on the pulse of digital omnipotence, Spore is sort of like a Sims game but you’re a creature of your own design instead of a boring, blocky humanoid.Then again! If you wanted to be human and bipedal (you’re so pedestrian) you could be. You could also be dodecapedal. You can have 4 eyes if you like. Throw on a giant spiky tail for good measure. It can’t hurt (you), right?
With your Franken-creature, you will navigate (when the full version is realeased) the entire universe. You’ll evolve from a single celled organism to a complex whatever-you-wanna-be. It’s kind of like the American dream with a heavy dose of mutagenesis.
