I’m not writing anything insightful in this blog post, but I finally got to use the Spore creature editor yesterday (I use OS-X, so it just came out), and had to write about it. All I can say is AWESOME! Will Wright deserves all of the accolades everybody showers on him. His team deserves a lot of credit as well.
Normally, I don’t pay much attention to what the mainstream publishers are doing, but I love the kind of “sandbox” games Will creates, and I have been waiting anxiously for Spore for four years now. While a lot of people, including myself, criticize the game industry for creating a lot of crap, and it does create it’s share of crap, the release of this game makes me feel good and gives me hope.
