Spore Previewed

Computer and Video Games has published a new preview of Will Wright's upcoming god sim, Spore. The game will allow players to climb the evolutionary ladder from single celled organism to master of a sprawling galactic empire.

Spore is about evolution, so the gameplay style evolves as you progress. In Creature phase, things go a bit action-strategy and your overall goal is to socialise with other creatures, survive and ultimately evolve to group or Tribe phase.

Tribe phase equals RTS. Here you're building primitive bases and trying to defeat or convert other Tribes populating the world, which ends in the creation of a city.

This then takes you to Civilization phase (no prizes for guessing what game this is like), where you're attempting to become the dominant species on the planet through military, economic or diplomatic means.

Once you own the planet, you enter Space phase, a strategy experience where you terraform planets, visit and trade with other empires (or befriend them) to acquire enough asistance in order to wage intergalactic war. That's where we're all heading folks. By the way, the Space phase is GIGANTIC.
Head over to the site below to read the rest of the preview and check out the collection of screenshots from the game.
