Spore

Google vid (lengthy): http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...03330420559198

Essentially this looks like possibly the most interesting PC game concept vid/demo I've ever viewed. Your char starts out as a single cell/amoeba, and through manipulations and different management/sim-like gaming decisions your "spore" creates a diverse world, in various stages where the camera is slowly sweeping back through time. For example we start out in a pool of water and eventually build not just our own towns but own civilizations which we can conquer. The vid ends with a demo of traveling the various galaxies in the multiverse...the game is infinite and is always changing. Very cool vid, and imo the ultimate PC sim/management style game I know of

Vid is sort of simple until about 10 minutes into it. One cool thing is how customizable everything is, down to what type of molding you want a particular structure to have, and eventually the type of spacecraft you build to travel to different planets.

Don't get me wrong this looks like a brilliant and REAL innovation in gamming,
But It doesnt appeal too me.

If anyone ever wanted to make a game like this that was more 'realistic' and
developed into a really cool si-fi story that would be awesome.

This was posted almost a year ago. I remember because I watched it like 10 times. Looks great.

Don't like the name. Game could be playable, though.

Really old...

Still, it missed me and now rightfully on my radar.
