Spore Demo Video Posted
Okay all, it seems that the GDCTV web site has finally posted the video which shows the Spore demo. This is the exact same demo which was shown at E3 this year. Registration is free to the site so you can check it out.
This is actually good as my chat with Will Wright at E3 will make at lot more sense now since we talk about how the editors and game mechanics work (we go way past the demo shown). So here is the schedule:
Part One: Watch the Spore demo video, have mind blown.
Part Two: Listen to my interview with Will Wright (to be posted later today) and have mind blown again...

cool now I believe
first real info for a while.
Can't wait for your podcast with Will
I think my mind just had an orgasm.
I didn't quite get what the big deal was with Spore, until now. Wow does that look like a an incredible game!!
This is frustrating - it's showing Will but not his slides...
Is there anyway to download the video? I really want to save this. ^_^
Is there anyway to download this video?
Sorry, I thought it didn't post my bad...
That was the most fantastic game I have ever seen demonstrated... I'm blown away!!!
How many times does he have to say "Um..." !!!
That looks amazing. The scope of the game now becomes apparent.
if Spore is even 1/90 as good as it looks then it will still be the best game ever....
can anyone dl and save the file somewhere? i saw that they use emails for sponsering.. :$
Great, great video. I'am a german reader of your Internet Magazine Steve and i'am absolutely amazed from what i've seen in the video of the gdc !!! Thanks for posting this to us.
But I've got one question. Iam really awaiting your next PODCAST about the Interview with Will Wright. But unfortunately, i didnt find the Link. Did you post this interview already and i cant find the link ? Or ist there no link at the moment? When will your next podcast be online ?
Thanks at last and sorry if i made mistakes, my english is not so good at all ;-)
Greetings from Germany, Frankfurt,
^ he has not posted it yet it will be on later this night according to Steve. I'm in the US so it 5:30 pm here
Thanks for the info jujubee ;-) So i'am gonna look this tomorrow.
Good night to all and enjoy the podcast tonight (in the US ;-))
hehe I'v been refreshing my screen for almost 3 houres now! now if you don't call that devotion then!... well I'll cry ;)
I wish I could see the slides. Did anyone have luck getting those to display??
nothing here.. I wounder if they even uploaded them...
can't stand the intisapation!
Just got to say, this looks incredible....
I really liked it when he blew up the planet.... we all know we are going to have a day where that is all we do.
*insert R2-D2 WHOOOOAAAAAA sound*
I never wanted Spore more!
Still waiting for this mind blowing interview.
I can sit here all night.
Steve! Give us this Will Wright inteview immediately! I haven't left the comp since the announcement! Argghhhh!
Yeah! And hurry! Cause I have to go now!
Lets hope it is there after I click post!
And it's all algorithmically calculated? Wow.
It seems like the game with the greatest scope could concievably be distributed on just a couple of 3.5 inch disks :)
*I tried to post this with a space after every sentence for greater dramatic effect, but it didn't show up in preview and tags didn't seem to help. Just take my mind-being-blown-awayness as given. I'm still a bit stunned :)
I want to make a tellitubby not that i like them it would just be funny.=)
wait I just changed my mind i want to make spongebob that would be funny
WHOA! i cannot wait! i also LOVE that we will get all of this online content FREE! that is where the sims online failed, who is gonna pay $10/month to play a crappier version of sims online when you have the regular game already?
I LOVE SPORE!
my first creature will be something like a human so i can see how that'll end up :-D
My faith in mankind is restored...
(Insert dramatic pause and then bust into song and dance here)
Im not going to be able to wait for Spore to release! Im already going insane!
Yeah me too, I love creating my own content and 9/10 of my games have editors of some sort in them for that reason. I allready know what I want my creature to look like!
Great site btw! I just found it and I love it allready! :D
I just thought of something- do you think it will be possible to have multiple profiles on this, like two universes?
My sister and I will both be wanting our own universes.
Or maybe we could share a universe and compete if that's possible!
woah......that just looks.....perfect, i always wanted to do somethign like this!
i already thought the game was cool before i watched this (unlike others) but now... ITS JUST F*CKING COOL!!!
Is there anywhere to download this video, rather than stream it?
I think the video only is at that site. Gamespot dont have it, filefront dont have it, fileplanet dont have it. no site have it for download. i hate that becouse i have a quite slow internet and want to download it.
I thought I wanted this game badly before... you should see me now.
Moste interesting game I have ever seen!!!
This game looks un-freaking-believable!!! I've watched the video at least 8 times and I still can't get enough! I've been following the game since it was first mentioned and I want it right now! If I had a time machine, I'd go to the release date, pick up a copy, bring it back, and start losing days of sleep playing it!!! Will is the MAN!!!!!
Wow!!!!!!!!! I CANT WAIT TO PLAY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT LOOKS AWSOME!
Id heard of Spore from Bethesda forums as i was soothing my urge to get my hands on Oblivion. Just the small mention of evolving a creature with extreme customization struck my interest and i dug up any information I could.
Then i found this video and got to watch the Fabled developer slideshow and presentation made by Wright. Amazing, simply amazing! Its just a real shame that the game wont be released until Fall of 2006. A long ways away, i hope they cut the development date short seeing as the game seemed to be stable and intact for a runnable demo at so early a time.
Thank you however, i appreciated this movie!
I learned of this game via Ign.coms most anticipated games of 2006. I watched the video, it is awesome! I always wanted to create a lifeform, watch it grow, see life around me, see other civilizations growing around me, trade, fight with them, and this game even lets you go to other planets! This is amazing! This will be one of the very few CREATIVE games! I'm tired of repetive games repeating a prior games concept over and over. This is definitely a game to look forward to. :)
WHEN!!! AAARGH! brain melting from lack of Sporeness! I NEED this game! Once again, Will Wright has triumphed over... well... Rock On Wright, is all i can say.
It is absalutly AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when will it be realeased?
i watched lil clip yesterday on www.i-am-bored.com mind boggling its 35 mins and i couldnt stop rewinding and playing again this things gotta bring peace to all gamers when will it be out cas i already thought of 100 different types of creatures im going to create lol (talk about excitement)
ah, I believe the movie has found its way to google video, and you can download it from there.
OMG so dam orgasmic !!!!!!!!!!
Ive watched it sooooo many times I cant get enough
cant w8 to create my own race might be massive beefy cat fings or maby a lizard thing
i give it a 12298472986/10 :-)WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
It looks like it will be the best game ever! When it comes out i'm buying it!
I just watched the game and now i have a new reason to live..... The game is comming out in 6-9 months!, somewhere in fall.....so long to wait, it is sad.
That was an amazing video. If you made a demo for the game them it would sell better than most normal games. I cant wait for it to come out.

This game look tite I cant wait for it to come out oh yeah [IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII NEEEEEEED IT]/SB
i think this game will consume the minds of the general public.
believe me people will lose jobs over this game because of the sheer open endedness of this. i think ill probably not use internet for the next billion years until spore 2 comes out. if it NEEDs a sequel.
I hear that the game shold come out 16th october 2006...
there will be no demo, and it will not be released in october, but its posible it will it looks like in all will wrights new! demos that it is ready. they might just have to be building stock and writing a manuel and working out glitches so i can see it comming out in october. but i've read many interviews of will wright and him saying it is comming out in april or june but its possible to fit it earlyer the reason there will be no demo because he is working really hard to release it i to love spore and am going to reserv a copy cause when the release it it will be out for months!
I hope this game will come out on playstation 3 since im getting it when it comes out. whatever the system requirements are, my system wont be able to handle it so ps3 is da way to go.
i luve spore! im gonna make a civilization of evil penguins !!
i dont think it will be out for anything but the pc. and the evil panguins is good but underwater space ninga pirate monky squrrels would be much better.
OMFGZ! This game looks great!! Hours upon hours of gameplay... Just going round sucking up creatures with my spaceship and dropping them into space O.O It would ROCK ASS.
And you seriously think its going to come out on PS3? Lol.. The only console that could handle it is XBOX 360, but I doubt it will be on anything but PC. I'm not bothered - I'm prepared to update my PC if I need to, teh game is just TOO GOOD.
I swear down, I will not die untill I have exhausted Spore =)
[quote]I didn't quite get what the big deal was with Spore, until now. Wow does that look like a an incredible game!!
Yes Brian that sums up my initial views as well until I watched the video :). I know will is a coding genius but I will be honest I hate pretty much everything about the sims .......but spore looks superb. I really am hoping for a january release though since they are cutting stuff out .......but I doubt that will happen. I wouldnt mind so much the speculative march release if they were going to immplement everything people wanted such as see living creatures etc. I guess we all have a long pain staking wait ahead of us )
*correct my bad spelling of see to sea lol
if anyone wants the video fully downloaded check this page
then downlaod it(on the right side)
i REALLLY cannot wait until this freaking good game comes out
my head is bursting of ideas for making lifeforms but i cant seem 2 flush em out....
and my parents thinking my head's this huge cuase i study so much........
cows rule! as soon is spore comes out ill make a cow
