Maxis, makers of The Sims, present the next big bang - SPORE. Create your unique creature and guide it on an epic journey through a universe of your own creations. Play any way you choose in the five evolutionary stages of Spore: Cell, Creature, Tribe, Civilization, and Space. How you play and what you do with your universe is entirely up to you. Spore gives you a variety of powerful yet easy-to-use creation tools so you can create every aspect of your universe: creatures, vehicles, buildings, and even starships.
CREATE Your Universe from Microscopic to Macrocosmic—From tide pool amoebas to thriving civilizations to intergalactic starships, everything is in your hands.
EVOLVE Your Creature through Five Stages—It’s survival of the funnest as your choices reverberate through generations and ultimately decide the fate of your civilization.
EXPLORE Other Players’ Galaxies—Will your creature rule the universe, or will your beloved planet be blasted to smithereens by a superior alien race?
SHARE with the World—Everything you make is shared with other players and vice versa, providing tons of cool creatures to meet and new places to visit.
Galactic Adventures is tentatively scheduled for release sometime this Spring.
