    With my awesome game skills, I probably won't make it out of the water and onto land, but it will be fun trying.

    Damn, and I was hoping I would get rid of my video games addiction in the near future.

    Amazing idea, funnily i never heard of this game and i'm a heavy gamer. Looking forward to see your creatures Evo.

    Wow, I remember when that was first announced, back when I used to play a bunch of games. I had assumed by this time that it must have either been canceled or that it hit the market and didn't do well, since I hadn't heard much about it recently. But after all of this development time, it must be amazing!

    I'm downloading the creature creator right now!

    From what I can tell it has changed a bit over the years. The demo videos i've look more complex than it used to be and and graphics a richer. At least it's finally coming out and not yet another 'Duke Nukem Forever' victim.

    I saw the title and I thought that it was about to be an invasion of tree spores :rolleyes:

    Ooh, there's a Mac version! Now I'm really interested. :biggrin: I think I need a creature creator too. Since Evo first talked about it, it has looked like the one game that might interest me in trying out games. It just looks fun (and like Evo, I'll probably spend a lot of time as primordial ooze trying to get out of the water).

    I'm really anticipating the game. Apparently other people's creations will get downloaded onto your computer and have their own little worlds you can visit or conquer or destroy or whatever.

    The down side to that? All of the penis monsters.

    I'm hoping there will be censoring of that stuff, though. The game looks fantastic otherwise. But should we be playing an Intelligent Design simulator? =/

    Hopefully they will put the kabosh on that, OY.

    On a similar note, if you like first person shooter's, check out Nexuiz, its FREE on downloads.com, and its pretty good for a FREE game. Really easy to use multiplayer, and it runs on Linux, Windows, and Mac.

    I'm getting the Mac version of the creature creator downloaded now. :biggrin:

    Now, what's the problem with monster penises being sent to us? :uhh:

    Guaranteed they will have a team of people checking the uploads before they become downloads.

    The Youtube link I posted? It's just the results of a Youtube search for "spore penis". 417 results.

    Yeah, but for how long? There's going to be so many people sending in their creations (most of which will likely be kids with goofy ones) that I don't think you'll be able to check them all.

    I remember seeing this recently. It looks rather interesting though these sorts of games tend to bore me after a while. I'll probably check it out though.

    Fine, fine sorry. Damn.

    Do you think it'll be mere child's play or will it have some seriousness and thought into it? I simply don't wanna waste my time -which is my specialty- making weird looking creatures and that's it...I wanna truly get the 'serious' and 'thought-provoking' experience of creating new species and try to make it survive and dominate.

    Then I think a $60 video game is right up your alley. :rolleyes:

    We need a 'whew' smilie.
    When I saw the title of this thread, and who posted it, my first thought was that the Spawn was pregnant.
