Game Description:From the very tiniest forms of life to the intergalactic level of existence, you are in control of life itself in this simulation game by Will Wright. Beginning in the primordial ooze, players create a character from DNA that will grow, survive, and mate as it evolves from a single-celled organism to a fully-formed member of an establishing species. As more and more creatures inhabit the world, and as evolution forms the future, your species will join herds, clans, even civilizations. The more advanced the creatures of the planet grow, the more complex the strife of survival becomes. And while the player can continue gameplay in Spore at any level -- playing as a cell, as a wild creature, or as a civilized and organized society – players can also step even further out and play the game from the planetary or interstellar level, while also going online to connect worlds with other gamers.

  • EA To Relax 'Spore' DRM In Upcoming Patch

    Seems like Electronic Arts has slightly succumbed to the internet outrage over Spore's DRM and will relax the copy-protection on Will Wright's new game in an upcoming patch.

    EA has been fighting some internet backlash over Spore's DRM issues, but they have responded with hard numbers.

    Well this is defintely not another Rick Roll. The user manual in EA's recent simulation hit, Spore, states that "multiple Spore accounts for each installation of the game" are allowed.

    Fret not, for any doubt about Spore's creationist leanings are to finally be solved by this fact: Earth is in Spore and gamer Galrith has done all the work for us in locating it. It's quite appropriately in our Solar System on Orion's belt in the Milky Way Galaxy. Remember to avoid the Galactic Core as it is very crowded and the Guardians...
