Spore is Will Wright’s new game. He had earlier created Sims. Business Week writes:
Spore, undoubtedly, is his most ambitious project: It consists of five distinct phases, each pretty much a game in its own right, and mixes action-adventure, space-simulation, and RTS gameplay…Early indications suggest that Spores gameplay should live up to the hype with the super-friendly yet powerful editors and the space phase offering particularly rich rewards.
The game may still take a year to be out.
