Title: I dreamed about spore.
Post by: MetallicDragon on June 04, 2005, 12:33:29 am
In it, I dreamed there were lots of screenshots, movies and even a demo, in which there was this monster someone here had an idea for where its head was bowl shaped, but in my dream it and some creation of mine I cant remeber were eating headcrabs from Half-Life 2. As like all my dreams, it soon evolved into a sitcom of sorts with a cat, a dog, and Bowl-head.

Similar things happened when anticipating WoW.

Why do my dreams always degenerate into sitcoms?

And damnit for a while I thought there was a spore demo out :(
Hopefully more dreams tonight.

Aah, I've had my share of those... three dreams in three nights, in a row. And of course a few scattered ones here and there. Nothing interesting in them, just me playing the game, can't remember what things looked like after waking up, but it was a good game while it lasted.

Heh... usually I don't dream in games until after playing them for a week solid. That MUST be a sign... a sign that I think about this game way too much for it to be healthy... Oh well, such is life.

Lol.. Well.. My dreams haven't included Spore yet, but since I have been farely busy with Cossacks 2: Napoleonic Wars and have been reading a biography about Napoleon and a book about Waterloo all at the same time, my dreams have been tinted by that.. For a while I dreamed I was an officer in Napoleons army on the march for Waterloo.. I think Cossacks 2 somehow made me realize more about the strategy at the game, because the dream seemed very lifelike for as far as I, a 20th century person, can judge..  ;D

I've only ever dreamed about one game - that is Spore. I've been wanting a 'Sim Earth 2' however, Spore seems better in so many ways now  :)

Anyway, in this dream, I remember having a large war between me and this other city (we were the only 2 on the planet) Unfortunately, I can't remember the rest :(

 It's not fair, I never remember anything about dreams. I don't even remember dreaming at all it's not fair. In fact I sometimes think that dreaming is a lie the whole world has kept running just to make me feel wiered. This post has made me sad, but I do like the idea of a bowl-headed creature eating a headcrab.

LOL.  Have you played Psychonauts?  You made me think of Fred Bonaparte.

I can't say I have, but I've just looked up the game and I laughed my you-know-what off when reading the short bio of Fred Bonaparte:

"An actual descendant of the real Napoleon Bonaparte, Fred led a normal life, free of war, empire building and funny hats. Fred was very docile. In fact, he was what you might call a loser. Somewhere deep within him, though, the spirit of Napoleon lay dormant. Then one day, disgusted with Fred's un-killer instinct, the spirit of Napoleon woke up. He took over and began fighting a war for control over Fred's mind."

As for me resembling Fred.. Well.. Who knows.. I might be a far descendant of Napoleon.. Very unlikely, but who knows..  ;D Vive la France! *Starts humming the Marseillaise..*

Yeah, I dream about Spore almost every other night. I dreamt I was playing it, then the little things came to actual life and sentience and tried to attack me and I was all like "No way!" and I made a tiny Will Wright's Airship and then it flew aways. Peaceful coward. True story.

It happened, I had another dream last night!

I can't remember much, but I remember spending a while building up my homeworld after ridding it of opposition. I got the UFO and when into my own Solar System. There was a planet furthest away from the Star, quite like mine, with a giant moon that looked like the arid planet of Will's presentation at the GDC. Anyway, the planet the moon was orbiting was very earth-like however it had about 90% water. I found 2 tribes (waaaaay behind on my tech level) seperated by alot of water. They crawled on land, but looked like they were amphibious ??? Anyway, I left them, came back a while later, and they'd both built huge cities on land, and had really high-tech vehicles

I doubt it means anything, but it was a fun dream while it lasted. Pity I can't remember all of it

just one dream: spore cultural demo

dreamed i was at E3 and i saw a video of the civ era
saw a morph of 10-12 scifi Fav creatures like the faces on medical shows
then will kicked me out of the booth, to be fair i was trying to take a peek at the behind the scenes work
from there it devolved into running around the convention Hall, i saw really cool space rts in the distance couldn't get to it.

did see one interesting thing, a X box like console with Ps2 like control.

P.S. very glad i'm not the only one to dream in spore
P.P.S. i don't dream often, i need proper sleep to dream (http://folk.uio.no/kyrreaa/images/FK%20-%206min%2019sec%20-%20The%20doctor.jpg) "Healthy Natural Sleep"

For those who can't seem to remember your dreams: Start a dream diary.

Put a notebook at your bedside before you go to sleep. AS soon as you wake up, write down everything you can remember from your dream, even if it just a person, feeling, or idea. Some nights you won't remember anything, butr slowly you will get better d better at remembering dreams this way.

Some people say this is the best way to learn to Lucid Dream... I don't know if that is real though, but I do now that dream diarying helps you remember drems better.

How'd you learn to get lucid?
Been trying to figure out how for quite awhile...
Then I'd know if I was dreaming of spore!

Post by: Kishmond on June 17, 2005, 11:22:15 pm
"Lucid dreaming" (I didn't know there was a name for it) is something I do often, sometimes wihout even trying. I try as hard as I can to remember my dreams, because they are better than any video game. Dreams are how I get to know myself. But the best part is, I never have nightmares. I have dreams that would be considered nightmares, luckily, I'm not quite conscienous (?) enough to get scared. Some more memorable "lucid" dreams I have were the one that was just TV static with vague images of people. This semed to go on for an eternity, I don't even remember waking up. Another unpleasant dream took place on a mountain. I wanted to wake up, so I jumped off a cliff. I landed face first 100 feet down but didn't wake up. So some other people and I held hands and danced in circles and sang- "wake up, wake up..." at least I woke up  ::)

But that's off subject... I did have one dream about spore but the only thing I can remember is creating a bluish, greenish, yellowish fat fish that swam around...    ???

Post by: Haddeen Sol on June 18, 2005, 12:37:33 am
Ah, the lucid dream. I have one almost every night, and being stuck in one of those would be nice. However, since then I'd completely lost the ability to dream normally, and that's nice to me too. Some of my best remembered(?) dreams were nightmares, which I absolutely LOVED. But that's just me...

Lucid dreaming is nice but i can't remember after waking.
the only dreams i remember now are the semi-waking ones.

nightmares: Zombies -creap me out!, Loved ones dying- horrible
leaving Tv on helps: movies, music

loved dreaming the matrix.

There's something about sluggish moving zombies and not being able to escape in a dream that is also pretty terrifying to me too.  If you're left to imagine things yourself, things are 100 times more scary - which is why The Blair Witch Project, when you first view it anyway, is pretty scary (thought some was a bit silly, but overall it was quite tense).

I sometimes have lucid dreams... not very often though.

I have really strange lucid dreaming abilities, and the only thing I seem to be able to do is fly, and it's a LOT harder than it sounds. A lot of times I'll take off just in time to escape the Doom 3 monster brigade only to fall back down because I'm not concentrating enough. The flying is pretty neat though, it's sort of like forcing energy in a direction to propel yourself.

Post by: Golgrig on June 18, 2005, 04:59:26 pm
The Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy has this to say on the subject of flying:

 There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying.
    The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
    Pick a nice day, it suggests, and try it.
    The first part is easy.
    All it requires is simply the ability to throw yourself forward with all your weight, and willingness not to mind that it's going to hurt.
    That is, it's going to hurt if you fail to miss the ground.
    Most people fail to miss the ground, and if they are really trying properly, the likelihood is that they will fail to miss it fairly hard.
    Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, which presents the difficulties.
    One problem is that you have to miss the ground accidentally. It's no good deliberately intending to miss the ground because you won't. You have to have your attention suddenly distracted by something else when you're halfway there, so that you are no longer thinking about falling, or about the ground, or about how much it's going to hurt if you fail to miss it.
    It is notoriously difficult to prise your attention away from these three things during the split second you have at your disposal. Hence most people's failure, and their eventual disillusionment with this exhilarating and spectacular sport.
If, however, you are lucky enough to have your attention momentarily distracted at the crucial moment by, say, a gorgeous pair of legs (tentacles, pseudopodia, according to phyllum and/or personal inclination) or a bomb going off in your vicinity, or by suddenly spotting an extremely rare species of beetle crawling along a nearby twig, then in your astonishment you will miss the ground completely and remain bobbing just a few inches above it in what might seem to be a slightly foolish manner.
    This is a moment for superb and delicate concentration.
    Bob and float, float and bob.
    Ignore all considerations of your own weight and simply let yourself waft higher.
    Do not listen to what anybody says to you at this point because they are unlikely to say anything helpful.
    They are most likely to say something along the lines of, 'Good God, you can't possibly be flying!'
    It is vitally important not to believe them or they will suddenly be right.
    Waft higher and higher.
    Try a few swoops, gentle ones at first, then drift above the treetops breathing regularly.
    DO NOT WAVE AT ANYBODY.
    When you have done this a few times you will find the moment of distraction rapidly becomes easier and easier to achieve.
    You will then learn all sorts of things about how to control your flight, your speed, your manoeuvrability, and the trick usually lies in not thinking too hard about whatever you want to do, but just allowing it to happen as if it was going to anyway.
    You will also learn about how to land properly, which is something you will almost certainly cock up, and cock up badly, on your first attempt.
There are private flying clubs you can join which help you achieve the all-important moment of distraction. They hire people with surprising bodies or opinions to leap out from behind bushes and exhibit and/or explain them at the critical moments. Few genuine hitch-hikers will be able to afford to join these clubs, but some may be able to get temporary employment at them.

— Douglas Adams, "The Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy"

Oh, flying isn't the hard part for me. When I go lucid, what I usually do is first I lift myself up, to see what I was just standing on, or what I was inside of (I usually pass through walls easily) the problem is stopping the ascent. I keep going higher and higher. Usually I start seeing the whole world before me, then when I try to get past the planet-view, I just wake up. But flying is one of the things that comes naturally to me, although I usually just do flying leaps.

That's exectly how flying in my dreams is like- very hard. Even though I know I'm in a dream common sense takes over and tells me that I can't possibly fly... I end up just kinda falling slowly... I think I was able to get my self glide very fast in one dream, only a few inches off the ground.  ::)

I dreamed about a game the other night which turned out to be a lot like Darwinia (with Black & White 2 graphics). I definetly dreamed about Spore for like the first week after I heard about it.
Title: Dreaming of Spore?
Post by: Granite T. Rock on July 29, 2005, 09:38:50 pm
Anybody else out there dreaming of Spore?  I don't mean sitting around day dreaming about spore but waking up in the middle of the night realizing you were just dreaming of Spore?

I dreamed I was watching a documentry on TV about Will Wright sometime after spore had been released.  The commentator said that "Wright Wright of the GDCi (aka the GDC Institute) was well respected for his work on a computer game that show cased the powers of evolution.  However after the games release, the stress of the work caused him to do some actions that have some questioning his theories on evolution"

Then TV scene changed to Will running accross a mall to an escalator in a white lab coat being chased by securitiy while screaming: "If you want to change the world, now is the time to do it!  If you believe in Evolution and believe the world can be a better place the time is now!"


Anybody else have any crazy dreams or should I go find myself a good therapist?  I think the message of the dream is that the world will be a better place when Spore comes out (and not to go crazy while waiting for it!).   ::)

I haven't had those kinds of dreams yet, but there's a pretty good chance I will. Last night I had a dream about an ass of a teacher I had, even though it's a couple months late for that. Spore dreams might be the same way.

Post by: Gauphastus on July 29, 2005, 10:03:01 pm
I had a dream I was playing it. Joyful emotion.
It's where I got the idea for having some rare boss-type creature somewhere in the universe, powerful enough that it takes a whole army to bring it down. I doubt that's in, but it seemed pretty sweet.
Also got the idea for finding secret treasure caches scattered around the universe; little things below the ocean or somewhere on the surface that you can collect to give you some kind of resource bonus.
In my dream, I found a treasure in an underwater cave; it powered up my creatures, giving them the ability to shoot lasers. That was weird.
Then I woke up.

That's all I remember.

Um then i fought some crime as some randomly generated hero, and when i went home, it was in a hut with wierd two headed dragons. thats all i remember, most of my other ones are compiled into a split moment or so it seems as i wake up. so i dont remember those jsut a few feelings.

I had one last night coincidently.

It started with me and my brothe playing a leaked/stolen copy of the GDC 2005 version of the game. My brother had found a part that wasnt in the demo when Will showed it, it was a really hot planet with lava flowing that was really close to its sun. After that my dream messed up and switched places. It was at GDC 2006 and Will Wright was presenting alot of parts of Spore that he didnt have time too at GDC 2005. One of the things was a flying fish and him demonstrating the different types of sentient creatures you can have (flying, ground, water).

Thats all I can remmember.

A while back i had a spore type dream

my dream was basicly a E3 presentation by Wright with an extended video with a picture morph of all kinds of creatures.
then i tried to steal the computer and got kicked out!

fun! (details: spore was being played on a Playstation like console and had all sorts of extras will hasn't told us about yet....basicly it was like Spore was Black & White IX, all sorts of galaxy spanning controls: write your name across the galaxy!)

hope i have another spore dream

I had this dream a week ago... I was in a village. There was a big wooden house with guards. They said that Will Wright was expecting me and they pushed me in the house. There was Will with a computer and he said that he has a problem. He can't finish spore because there is a ghost in his house and he asked me if I can kill it for him. If I do that he will answer any question about spore. So I started looking for the ghost. I found it in the next room. It was that girl from the ring (the movie). I think I killed it but I don't remember how. I was just on my way to Will to ask him some stuff but then I woke up  :(

I just recently dreamed about Spore. I wasn't playing it, instead I was one of a bunch of people asking questions. The only one I remember was, "Are there going to be graveyards?" and the answer, "No."

Not much but it was about Spore.

OMG
This just made me remember one of my dreams i had when I used to what Dragon Ball Z way to much (to much I would say is just watching it)
but it was a lucid dream the only one ive had.
I wasn't very good at flying. (felt like the energy thing too)
I think I somehow knocked myself unconsious but, aparently in a dream thats like waking up
but It felt like i was falling in the air which... if i "Actually" fellt like that (although just in my head)  but "real" to me
thats probably why i fell...
and there was another one wich was just wierd.
I My alarm clock woke me up...
I tried to turn it off but it wouldn't work...
I got so P.O.ed tha i smashed it...
when it got to the point that it would be immposible for it to still be ringing...
then I actually woke up and turned it off...
and there was another one where i knew i was dreaming... but had no control...
Title: Re: I dreamed about spore.
Post by: Golgrig on August 13, 2005, 09:38:36 pm
that feeling of falling/ dropping for a second upon waking is normal for me it comes in a wave as i take control over my body back.
i usualy spasm and clutch at the covers but it's over to fast to scare me.
i get the same feeling, only its limited to my legs, if i let them fall asleep then stand up quickly


anyone else get "reading" dreams? i get them when i do a lot of reading before i get to sleep a long time.
so i get some interesting book dreams somtimes.

I had a dream about spore also.

I was in the civilization phase when all the sudden aliens attack my civilization, War of the Worlds style!! It looked hopeless at first but then I used Jet Chan(of Evil Genius fame) to beat back the invasion and win the war.

In that smae night, an Idea for an RTS came to me. You controlled a wizard, a midget with a battleaxe and a tiger. The wizard is the main character; when he dies you lose. So anyway, you start out next to a squadron of bad guys.  If you had all 3 units run away from them, they would be killed. If you used the midget or the tiger to hold them back while the other two ran, you'd get past that part but then you would eventually come across another squad and be killed because two units is insufficient to destroy a squadron. That game would be like the Ninja Gaiden of RTSs.

I had an odd dream about Spore: it was just the menu screen.
I don't remember anything specific, but I remember the font of the menu options and the groovy green background.

I had a dream, where I made some red creatures, oddly resembling Pikmen. I say oddly, because I have never played that game, only seen a few screenshots.

Oh yes, and in the dream, I had just gotten the game. I remember thinking (while having my dream) "Finally Spore is out!"

I never really dreamt about video games until last night. Which was about Super Mario Brothers 2.  Even weirder I was playing it on the lower screen of my DS while a friend was playing it on the top screen at the same time somehow.  It was bugging out and whenever I collected a coin it would hurt me and I'd go to little Mario or die.  So we decided to go to Best Buy to buy an N64 and play Pokemon Snap instead.  Then suddenly I was naked.  Then I woke up.

It's rather disturbing that people ACTUALLY dream about videogames, and even more disturbing that I'm one of them.

But, it's not like you can actually control your dream (Well, some can. It's called lucid dreaming)

The thing is, if I dream about a game (which is rare), its about one that I have been playing alot. The most recent being Civ 4. I played it all night in my sleep recently.  :-\  I have never dreamed about a game that is speculation or doesn't exist yet.

Actually I dreamt of it just a couple of days ago, it was pretty weird, cuz it started off with a depression I had, so I cut off my arm with a kitchen knife(No, I'm not that kinda type normally:P). But then I found out that spore was in stores, so I sewed it back on and played it. I can't really remember how the game actually was, cuz my alarm clock woke me up. But I found out what the reason were, for the "arm cutting" thing; it was because I had slept on my arm, so it was kinda numb when I woke up. Weird how dreams can be affected by things you can hear, smell or feel when you sleep. It was so much easier when I was young, at that time i could control my dreams, weird how I suddenly can't :-\

I havn't really dreamt about Spore, but I do dream about games that I frequently play.  One time, back in the day when I played Empire Earth, I played an entire scenario in my dream and used an awesome and really strange strategy to beat it involving sending a team of snipers down a back path.  I tried it the next day and finally beat that scenario.  (I had tried to beat it for a week)

OK this is the second spore dreams topic i think.
I must be going crazy, because i am having spore dreams. I normally do not dream about video games, but last night i dreamt that i got spore. It was very 2-d, and had graphics similar to the Creatures seriese of games by mindscape. You could choose basick forms of your creature and then aplly parts. You could also choise which things got you more or less evo points, but it was balanced.  A while ago, i dreamnt that i was playing the city stage. My creature was a little tiny worm, and it played a lot like AOE, building certain stuff to get to the next age.
Comments?

I mostly daydream about spore.. Never have dreamt about it yet but I do sometimes about other games, it's mostly a short impression of some distorted artwork and  that I didnt expect the box to look like it does,

but if I daydream I dream about coming out of the water with my creature early in the morning, on that note, i actually wonder if you can make them transparent somehow, that would be cool, cause thats what I daydream about.

Anyway I'd just come out of the water to get food from the bottom of the foodchain and then go back in to the water to seek chelter untill I can buy my "weapon" and make it strong enough to stay more at land. At a later stage I wonder if you could influence the way they attack. I've seen an interesting thing in star trek voyager. There's this species that uses multiple ships to form one big weapon. So it would be interesting to see if it were possible that you can learn your creatures to bring up some multipart weapon that they can combine in a strong one, either biologically or with tools.....

My city would be very  very tall :).. for the rest i didnt really came up with other "dreams" cvause i'd rather wait untill the game is released befor I dream up even more impossible stuff that might not b e possible in the game :)

but transparency or not, multipart weapons or not.. real time day/night or not , i'd stil like it..

althought I'd really love day/night cycles to be going on in the game...

I have really strange lucid dreaming abilities, and the only thing I seem to be able to do is fly, and it's a LOT harder than it sounds. A lot of times I'll take off just in time to escape the Doom 3 monster brigade only to fall back down because I'm not concentrating enough. The flying is pretty neat though, it's sort of like forcing energy in a direction to propel yourself.

I have had some lucid dreaming, when I was younger, whenever I was having a frightening dream I remember having some sort of control over when I woke up, sometimes it was represented by a T.V remote. Sometimes I know I'm dreaming and I can just do whatever the hell I want cause I know  ;D. Anyway, I've been under to much stress though to dream. I wish I wasn't.

i had a dream last night about spore and will wright and it seemed so real.  I was at my home and i seemed to be waiting for someone to come over and show me something.  The thing was, it was Will wright and some of his work mates came to my house to demonstrate some of the aspects of the game of spore.  i had to wait inside my house, while they were outside "creating creatures".  The next thing, i walked out my door and saw some of the weird creatures u can make in spore, obviously made by will wright n stuff.  Right at the front door when i walked out, there was this creature that had large back legs, was bipedal but very short and it had arms and a human like head, but walked as if it were a dinosaur.  I walked down our driveway and looked back n saw a dog like creature, then came across an upright flat corregated iron like creature, with a small head on top, then i saw a tripod like creature, but it was a very tall and lanky tripedal creature, with a small body.  It then started to dance with will wright, and they were doing some waltz..haha..
after that, he came in and proceded to show me some things about the game, but cant remember what it was.  When they were about to leave, i shouted out when he was walking out the door, when does the game come out, and he then said, "next year"..:(
weird dream, and also my brother was in it sleeping on his bed..

I just had a dream about Will Wright.  Quite random but here it goes:

In the previous day (in real life) I saw an argument that some weirdo Christian put forth about how a banana is perfectly suited for humans (e.g. Its shape/easy to peel/biodegrable packaging) and therefore God made it that way.

Well in my dream me and Will Wright wanted to make a video to give are point of view on why the banana is so perfect for humans (e.g. trees have evolved that way because more monkeys would eat their fruits if they were more suitable.) I can't remember much of it, but I was pleased that Will Wright was on my side in the evolution vs creationism debate.  Even though in real life he might not be.

Although to me the game looks a lot more like ID to me. The great hting is tht you're the designer. Yay Will Wright.

I know I had one last night. I was playing the game, looking at what looked like roughly the same planet as in the demo - except for some reason it was missing a whole chunk and kept on building itself, as if it were loading. In my cursor I had one of Maxis' creatures (don't know which one exactly), which I speculated could be placed on the planet; however, upon clicking nothing happened.

That's about all I can remember. And the funny thing is, until I woke up, I was completely convinced I was actually playing the game for real.

I was just going around messing around with the demo( there was only like ten planets) and all of a sudden my ufo was in a long red tube and my ufo was being knocked around like a stupid game of pinball.

Ok, so there I was, flying my F22 on a routine mission. I ended up near where Will Wright works, so I contacted him and asked him if I could come to the studio and see the game. He said it would be alright, so I went over and he let me play with the creature editor. I started out with this little green ball (about the size of a hamster) that had 4 legs aranged in a square, and one eye on the "front" of the ball. Anyway, this was unsatsifactory. I took the eye off, then for some reason I was perusing the internet. Will saw that I wasn't using the editor, and he got upset. I realized I was in err, so I closed all the windows, but the creature editor wasn't open anymore. So Will got very upset and opened up the game again, and I was in a hurry to appease him, so I accidentally clicked the wrong button. It led me to a different menu, and Will had to fix it for me. Will was incredibly annoyed with me at this point, and I could tell. He wasn't being subtle about it. So then, after I got back into the editor, Will took a seat a couple yards away, not facing the screen, to vent his anger. So I played with the editor. This creature was different. It was a pretty standard animal quadriped animal, but the spine billowed out where the tail was, so it looked kind of like a spade. And it was very low to the ground. And it kept walking around, so I had to drag it back to the platform, but it was very slow, so I just opened the green guy again. The first thing I did was elongate the spine. so instead of a little ball, it had more of a Z shape, going up. But there was a problem. The game crashed as I was trying to bend the spine the way I wanted, and it got all buggy. I don't really remember what happened after that, but I probably got kicked out of the office.

If you want to remember more dreams, try starting a dream journal. Write down all the dreams you remember when you wake up or remember them. I just want to realize I'm dreaming in a dream and go play Spore, but I always get sidetracked with flying and fireballs.

I then preceded to try to copy the game onto a removable hard drive but im not sure if i was able to copy it all, but i was so close. I think i may have even played a little bit of the game but i felt like i didn't have that much time so i was mainly just trying to copy it lol.

But then it turned out BW2 sucked.

Lucid dreams are cool (I allways know im dreaming), One time i was walking around this multi level dungeon and a sexy succubus apeared to kill me, I said "well this is my dream and here i am god", so then heaps and heaps of them started apearing and we all had a big orgy.
Couldn't you have kept that to yourself?

I finally had a Spore dream!

It was a demo by Will, and he was showing off hte city building part. He like, drug a big circle and it slightly flattened the area he selected and paved it, then he put up a wall, starting with the posts, and then filling in the sections. Then he was going to start placing buildings and things, but the dream ended.

I recently had a very "interesting" dream...

     My school decided to visit Heidelberg, Germany as a big school trip. We got there and ate at a cafe in a town square. In the middle of the square was a large-scale underground mining operation that my friends and I decided to go visit. On our way across the square, we were held up by a disgruntled mining employee in a construction worker's uniform. We quickly ran away into an ancient castle and hid at the top of some stairs inside the keep. An evil villain with a mustache then sent very small people in jumpsuits attached to helium party balloons to shoot us. We popped the balloons and threw the people into a river in the banquet hall of the keep, which was just below the staircase. The evil villain rubbed his hands together and cackled, "Let's see how well they do against the Persian Immortals!"
     
     Half of the castle fell into the moat, and the villain swam across the moat of the castle to the keep, which was left intact. Inside the keep, two heavy wooden doors swung open and the "Persian Immortals" marched in, single file. They were a metal version of those ancient Persian infantrymen with those funny helmets. They marched up the stairs to where my friends and I were hiding. We all yelled, "Oh no! The Persian Immortals!" and we all ran away down another set of stairs to the banquet hall.

     When we got downstairs, Zorro with one of those fancy fencing swords and a band of Mexican farmers with sombreroes and scimitars all began chasing us around the banquet hall on panthers. Zorro repeatedly tried to carve a Z in my back with his sword. I then noticed Chuck Norris standing in the corner. I yelled, "Save us, Chuck Norris!" Chuck Norris killed all of the Persian Immortals and Mexicans by roundhouse kicking them in the face.

     Chuck Norris had a showdown against Zorro, which turned into a "Who Wants to Be A Millionare"-style gameshow. Zorro answered  bunch of questions wrong and Chuck Norris only answered one wrong, but Chuck Norris lost anyway because the evil villain was judging the game. The villain locked him in an underwater cage in the banquet hall and said, "Let's see how you do against the "Snapping Turtle", Chuck... Norris!"

     Chuck Norris, being Chuck Norris, pried open the bars of the cage with his bare hands, swam out, and roundhouse kicked the villain in the face. He roundhouse kicked Zorro in the face, too. He then escorted us back to the cafe where my school was eating, and said something like "Now you kids stay out of trouble." We all said, "We sure will, sir!" Everyone ordered coffee and laughed like they do at the end of bad children's shows, and then I woke up.

I swear to god I actually dreamed this.

Today I dreamed about Spore, it was one of those dreams where you wake up thinking it was real, in my dream I had access to the creature editor pretty much like the sim 2 bodyshop and I made a bunch of creatures until I woke up, then I thought: "I gotta go to my computer to make more creatures like 'yesterday'" and then I realised I just dreamed about it :(

I had an odd dream last night:

I went to a Universal Studios theme part branch with my family. After a bunch of rides, we went to a show which was incidentally. Spore presentation by Will Wright. The presentation was a cross between GDC '05 (lots of concepts and little gameplay demonstrated by Will), E3 '06 (playale demo) and a computer class at my college (you sat in front of a computer). At the start, Will told us all to turn off our monitors since the glow was ruining the projector's image on the screen at the front of the room. When it came time for us to play around with the creature editor demo, it started right a skinny human look-alike instead of a blob. I had just added fins to it's head/neck and someone elbowed me in the gut so I crawled home instead of continuing to work.

Powerful in dreams, I am not.

I read the Lucid dreaming section in Wikipidia and tried to do it myself one night.  It worked and I realised that I was dreaming, so I would try and manipulate the dream, but as a result I would wake up pretty quickly and then later go back to sleep.  I got less sleep than usual.  Had loads of dreams, which I know one or two I managed to contain Spore in.  But when I woke up, I forgot a majority of what happened!  :-X

Anyway, I shall keep on trying in hope that one night I shall be in a Spore dream world.  :D

Post by: TheChaos7 on September 16, 2006, 11:42:29 pm
it was a really long dream but ill make it as short as i can

will had brought a small public demonstration to my town and people would get to mess with the editor. well me and my fiance keep trying to go but something always got in the way. this went on for a long long long time. finally i had shot out the door only to return because i did not know WHERE it was at. finally after a crapload of dumb reasons i couldn't go. me and abbee went

when we got there it was evening everyone had left. there was no crowd but will wright was there. with a machine that had I'm guessing 3 PCs hooked up. he was messing with one to the far right...we walked up and he did not even seem to notice us

abbee tapped him on the shoulder but got no response he just kept messing with the machine. i told her he is busy or something so lets not bother him. abbee took the PC to the left and i took the one in the middle beside will...

he looked over at me said nothing but put out his hand. i smiled and shook it (wish i could shake his hand in real life) and then began to finally FINALLY mess with the editor..i started it up and POOF my dad woke me up

he had the worst timing ever to wake me up.....

I had a dream, where I was in a car with my friend. She was driving, even though she's 14 like me. Anyway, I was telling her about Spore and Will Wright. I was just explaining that he's the guy who made The Sims, when I looked in the backseat and realized he's there. I was surprised and said: "Oh, he's been behind us all this time!" He laughed.

We continued driving and arrived to a place that looked pretty much like a school gym. There was some science stuff on display and there wasn't many people around. We walked around the place with him and talked about Spore. I also remember shaking his hand. What a nice dream it was.

Damn, this is the strangest thing. I had a dream too, and just last night.
I was sitting next to Will somewhere. A park or plaza bench I believe, near a fountain. Had nothing to do with Spore or games though; we were just hanging out there smoking cigars.
I have no idea if Will smokes cigars (or even smokes at all), but I've never smoked in my life.
I don't remember anything else happening, not even any dialogue.
Can't recall an accompanying emotion for the dream either.
It was really short, no point, and very little happened, but for some reason I remembered it.

This was probably the result of my being very bored (I've had several days off work in a row) and watching all the Spore demonstrations over again, right before I gave up and just went right to sleep.
Friggin' dreams.

It is. The brain only draws from prior knowledge. Do your friends happen to be voodoo doctors?

Last night I had an interesting dream about Spore... It started out with me at my school library. I found out the day before the dream that the school doesn't block any website (besides the one obviously needing to be blocked  ;) ) So anyways... I started screwing around on the NationStates General forums, when I noticed a little icon like the Spore one in the toolbar. So I clicked on it, and I was transported into a live-action Spore world. Will Wright then appeared, and said that since the game isn't done, I have to use a premade creature. It was actually rather simple, I think it may not have evolved much physically since the microbial stage... But anyways I was picking it up and sending it to what it ate. It ate these little spiky things that when they connected with more spiky things would make a giant web of spiky things. It was interesting. When I asked WW when I got to evolve, he said "Oh. We don't evolve in this version of Spore." I then shot him for saying that. Then I woke up. Yeah....

Speaking of odd dreams...(this doesn't have much to do with spore...unless transforming pencils are in it)

I have an art teacher, who isn't mean, actually quite nice. I dreamed she was screaming at everyone, and everyone was cringing and all. Really dark mood, walls were gray..windows tinted red...then she started throwing pencils at the students, but before they hit them, they turned into exacto knives, so when it hit the kid..the kid got stabbed and died. Then she kills about 5 kids this way, and the walls start..i think the best word would be sweating, blood, and the door turns into a cavernous maw...


Then I wake up and i'm like, "Wait a minute! That's not right. She's a nice teacher!"

Yes, many of these nightmares can be linked to the "Husbands Wallet" sindrome.

I dreamt I was playing Spore last night, it was horrible when I woke up wanting to play it. The 'default' race you began with were these pink wispy, smokey things, but they were all pixelly like something out of Darwinia, and every single sound in the game was from Mario. I started getting frustrated at the rubbish creature, until i realised you had to click a button to start creating your own race and properly playing the game. Duh!

I had an odd Spore dream out of the blue a couple nights ago.  I had created these gray creatures with four protruding eyes (2 front, 2 back), and was having a blast.  Then all of a sudden these new creatures showed up out of nowhere and they looked familiar.  Then I thought,  "Holy crap these are Naucians! I'm doomed!"

Then I woke up.

So apparently Nausicans are good at killing gray bug-eyed creatures.

only game i've ever dreamed about is my dream game.

     Decent graphics, like final fantasy 12, (in my dream it was legnd of legia style graphics, but lets kick it up a notch) but intense storyline, better than final fantasy 7, and your weapons could level up, just like there were a character in the game, they increased stats, (so did armor) and so did you. enemies rarely got to hard to fight, theres like a path of weak monsters, but on the map there are "hopspots" of which there are strong monsters, for a challenge. also, there would be something like chocobos, also there were pets. they leveled up too, and evolved, like pokemon, and when they did evolve, it was like spore, you could pick parts and the game would stick them on, considering the game isn't procedural, but you could pick frames, like a fish, mammal, or reptile, and each had a weakness, strength, and they looked different, but no sci-fi, more final fantasy style, there was magic, too. like every other game -_-. and it was almost an adventure game, but an intense RPG. there was also a skill board, like final fantasy 10, you also obtained these points, along with exp, but there were rarely stat increases, since you can level up, but there were skills, like steal, and magic, like fire. There was also a build mode at the start up screen, and it was very much like gmod.

besterest game ever.
only seconded by spore.

(did i say that last part right? its second place in my favorites list, spore in first.)

anyways, back on topic.

When I first learned of Spore, I did massive amounts of research and had one funky dream: Okay, so I'm a Willosaur, and I'm just walking around, and a Naucean comes out off nowhere and starts strangling me, then I turn into a crab thing a stab it, then it turns into a torpal and punches me, and it went on and on. Eventually I lost because I turned into a ViS and it was another Nuacean (mountain tribe I believe).

there is a technique to rember dreams better. It is a know fact in the psychology feild that everyone dreams it is just remembering it that is difficult. This may sound stupid but directly after wakeing up try to remember if you had a dream and tell yourself to remember it, then write it down(anything that you can remember) over a month or so your ability to remember dreams wil or should =Pl gradually increase and hopefully one will be about spore :D

I wanted to start lucid dreaming but I couldn't be bothered to write stuff down when I wake up. All I wanna do first thing is go back to sleep.
Writing down your dreams is only really to prevent forgetting its content due to the weird "evaporation" you get of the memory. A lot of dreams are garbled and abstract, as a result making it hard to remember anyways. Probably the best way to try force lucid dreaming is a bit tiresome, but pretty good. Every half hour, ask yourself openly (or just in your head if you cant do that) "Am I awake?". Ask it seriously. Glance around. Are you really awake? How do you know? Sharpness of detail. Do a simple mental exercise like an easy mental sum of 3 + 4. If you do this every half hour/hour, checking your surroundings, by habit, when you're dreaming, your mind is likely to stumble across the ritualistic behaviour and you'll ask it whilst dreaming. If you're lucky, you will respond by honestly asking yourself that question and attempting to perform the easy tests. Its normally about this point that you realise you're dreaming and get a little bout of strong lucidity, or your mind glazes over it and things continue as normal. One tip when you're quite 'awake' during a dream, is to keep checking how vivid things are, keep yourself mentally aware, otherwise something will get your attention, distract you, and essentially snare you back into the dream entirely.

Post by: gec05 on December 18, 2006, 10:42:29 am
The reason why it's difficult to remember dreams is because your short-term memory is shut down. Another part of the brain that deals with logic and critical thinking is also shut down and thats why dreams are very surreal and fantasy like and you don't even question it while in the dream.

For what it's worth the Naucean tendrils there were about 100 times scarier in full 3d and eating your poor tribe's faces.  :)  They really didn't look similar to your concept initially, then it kind of dawned on me.  Somehow I was able to check their creature data in the catalog and confirmed that they were real HydroMancer beasties.

I think I'm going to have to develop four eyed peoples just to make it really happen. :D

I have an art teacher, who isn't mean, actually quite nice. I dreamed she was screaming at everyone, and everyone was cringing and all. Really dark mood, walls were gray..windows tinted red...then she started throwing pencils at the students, but before they hit them, they turned into exacto knives, so when it hit the kid..the kid got stabbed and died. Then she kills about 5 kids this way, and the walls start..i think the best word would be sweating, blood, and the door turns into a cavernous maw...

I dreamed that I had finally made it to the release date, and for some reason I was going to look around on the internet a bit more before going and buying it in a store. But then I couldn't find it anywhere: whenever I searched the word "spore", only articles about mushrooms and fungi popped up...Then I searched for "Will Wright" and I think that's when I woke up.
Kind of a boring dream really, I wish I could have had some of those mushrooms, then my dream would have been WAY better.

Had another dream about spore last night.  In this one I was installing the game and planned to call in to work because Spore was out.  Nothing really spectacular.

However, the game was 8 CDs.  It would probably be 3 DVDs.  How big do you think the game will actually be?
Title: Re: I dreamed about spore.

With some dreams, believing them to be real even for a moment is devastating.. but that's a different topic altogether. Regardless, i'm not actually sure I will get Spore dreams either. One thing is that Spore is huge and effectivley amorphous, having no set locations or anything.    Part of how I dream about WoW so often (or used to) is because the locations stick in my mind.

Okay, this isn't so much a dream about me playing Spore or anything.

While I slept, I dreamt about other things. It was all forgotten when I woke up.
The only thing I remember was this weird and terrible urgency to email Will Wright and co. and tell them not to cut the water stage/underwater civs/etc.

As I woke up, the feelings went away. It was very odd.

Dreamed I had reached the very end of the tech tree, and all I had left to do was create new species and muck around with other planets and stuff. For some reason, I then found a button that could create a planet with identical land mass/positioned continents etc to a save game from Sid Meier's Civ 4. It was quite strange, but cool :D

My lil' bros were playing diablo on either side of me, and I had the creature editor open. Unfortunately, I didn't do much more than form the body and stretch out limbs, and i remember a little bit of a creature stage.

Then i went to an arcade and won $50, but I'd rather have played spore  >:(

I don't usually dream about video games, and never ever a bout movies, they're usually about friends and real life stuff, as opposed to before, where I used to dream about non-real life stuff (teenagerhood took alot of my imagination away)

However, last night I had a dream about spore. It took place in the upstairs area of some office building, where my brother and I had spore, and he would barely let me play it, but from what i played it was AWESOME. All the creatures we made looked exactly liked humans with very detailed faces, and the creaature editor was very limited, but the world we played in was limitless. I remember feeling upset because I couldn't shrink/grow things with my UFO in real life (even though I dont remember doing so in the game, nor did I have a UFO in real life)

Funny thing... I just had a dream about this forum and Spore.

See, in the dream, I was here at the forum at some point in time where it seemed like only a handful of people were using it.
The thing is that Spore was obviously already released, yet the forums were deader than hell.

So I was reading around looking for someone on here I talked to a lot named something like... beastboyman.  :-\
Anyways, he had posted this really cool picture of his spacecraft.
It was like one of those middle aged ships with dozens of rowing oars out the side, sails and all. The picture was well-taken, with a clear view of all kinds of stars and nebulae in the background.


Now I have concluded that my spacecraft should look like a circa 1550 Venetian Galeasse.

Last night, I dreamed of playing Spore as a beetle-like creature on the Screeble planet. I started out as a worm-like creature that two other animals were fighting over. Later, I evolved into a larger beetle that can eat things smaller than itself. Something was strange though. When I tried to eat a Screeble, it wouldn't let me. The game said that the Screeble I was trying to eat was an orphan. Then I thought "You can't eat orphaned babies then." But you can eat anything you are able to eat in the real game when it comes out (I'm not intending to offend anyone). About the screebles, both the ancestrial and sapient screebles were in groups communicating, apparently coming from a space ship. When I tried to attack one group, they ran back to their ship.

I think most dreams here have some things that are made up to create a cooler story... I don't exacly why I think this, but telling the details of your dreams is very difficult.

When I wake up and when I remember my dream, I can never remember if there where walls, ground or sky. I only remember the most important things.

Yeah, you're totally right. Sometimes when I remember the little things, I get totally confuse and realize what rubbish it was. Like sometimes I'm thinking back and trying to remember where I was in the dream, and I realize that for half the dream I was on the beach or something, and that all of a sudden half way through, I found myself in a sprawling city, but didn't even realize it.
It's kind of weird. Sometimes I even wake up from dreams with a very strong emotion, like anger or sadness, but I can't really remember why...

It's not the actual interaction with the dream that wakes you up, it's the excitement you get when you realise you're in a dream and in complete control of everything. In one of my first lucid dreams I "woke up in the dream" and I was on a bridge inside a red building (all it had inside was the bridge, really big building with red walls, and the bridge, lol). For some reason I realised it was a dream, so I tried some stuff that made me feel god-like, then since I knew anything was possible I threw myself off the bridge and started flying, but I got so excited I woke up. In a way, I think lucid dreams can be dangerous, it's a place where you have ultimate power and if you stay long enough you might never want to come out (coma), so maybe it's a defense mechanism the body has that wakes you up).

Anyways, the reason I bumped this thread is because I dreamed about Spore last night. In my dream, EA had decided to sell a version of Spore at a higher price (but you could get it right now online, like Steam), and for the next 6 months they would unlock a "creative stage" and update the game regularly, the first month you could only play with pre-made stuff through all the stages, then the second month you could create your cells, third month you could create your creature, fourth month you could create all the stuff in tribal, fifth month you could create all the stuff in city/civ and sixth month you could create all space stuff, then at the end of the 6th month Spore would be released everywhere with everything already unlocked (the people who bought the online-more-expensive-unlocking-editors-beta would have 1 month of complete Sporage before anyone else, and at the end they would have the full version). Unfortunately I  only got to play the first month version in my dream.

Today I had a lucid dream (you know, thos that you are aware you're dreaming and can control anything on it) so I played Spore for a while then I woke up :(


I've always wanted to have one of those.

I found a way to have them, it doesn't always work though. When I got to sleep, I focus on that *piiiii* you hear when there's complete silence (if you don't hear it at the time, just think about it and it will start), after a while I start hearing random voices (don't ask me why, lol) and a while after that I'm in a dream and aware that I'm in one. Might work for other people, so if you want give it a try, doesn't hurt, lol.

Last night I dreamt that I had Spore and bought an absolutely huge computer screen to play it.  The screen I had was almost the size of a movie screen.  It didn't fit inside the house, so I had to play Spore outside!  The graphics weren't very good thought, which turned out the be a problem with the screen.

Oh darn!
Last night i dreamt that i came around a store which demoed Spore (notice the rhyme :) ) Funnily enough, I thought of gamingsteve's forums, and hurriedly began to film another guy playing it on my cell-phone (sony ericsson k810i). I got a good long, and steady, video of it. Suddenly it was my turn to play and i was right in the menu, ready to pick an editor, when i woke up. Ofcourse, the first thing i did was to check my cell phone, but the video wasn't there :( buhuu

Last night I played a demo of the space phase.

Last week I spoke with Will Wright, and I'm quite sure that's when he gave it to me. At the time, I wasn't sure what was in the box.

I hope to get at an editor soon.

Last night I dreamt I met Will Wright and he came over to my house after we traveled on a bus together for a bit.  He then showed me Spore.  Civ phase, right on the verge of space.  I mean, he had the UFO, but was still putting aroudn the planet.  He took out some enemy airvehcle.  It was like a vehfical version of an epic creature, so it was pretty big.  All the while I was all like, "this has to be a dream, there's no logical way this is real".  That failed as my attempts to wake up and save myself from dissapointment didn't work.  So I sat there watching spore and being happy and then I was like, "****, this isn't my house, I must be dreaming" and then I woke up.  It made me sad.

I had a dream where I was starting the game, and my cell was on an asterioid and it crashed into a planet that was molten. It created a tiny puddle and in the whole puddle there was only one other cell... that I couldn't kill so I couldn't evolve. Didn't make for a very interesting game.

I recently had a dream in which my really annoying "friend" drove me to some store in this skyscraper (which had an awesome design, btw) where they were selling Spore. They made me help set up the barricade to keep people out and when they finally let me in, I almost got my hands around a box when my "friend" started dragging me away. Thankfully, this will never occur since I preordered Spore from Amazon  ;D

On a side note, don't you think it's an amazing feeling becoming fully aware within a dream. The term is "lucid dreaming". This happens to me almost every night. I'll be dreaming, and something will just....click.....I can't describe it. Then you actually realise you're dreaming, in your own head. Thats when you calm down (coz getting excited about it usually wakes you up!), and control your dream in any way you see fit. I can't describe it to someone without them actually experiencing it. I literally say to myself: "I'm dreaming....oh my god...I'm actually in my own head...woah" hehe

Back on topic, many a "Sporesperience" has been concieved while lucid dreaming. I'll put myself in the Spore universe and interact with all manners of creatures, then hop in my UFO and go wandering through the stars. Being in control of whatever you dream whenever you want to dream it......FTW!!

In my dreams, the spore creature creator had tons of parts, from the normal parts to hamburgers , pieces of cake, pieces of lego and pieces of playmobil :P

No seriously, I mostly dream about EADM failing horribly at delivering spore on september 7th, and then in my dreams EA had something against me and they would tell me I should just go play spore with a friend.

Then every1 left for lunch and it was just me and Will. So I got to ask wiill a few questions, I asked him what his greatest achivement was, and he wouldnt answer, I asked him what he thinks about Playboy Mansion completely ripping off The Sims, Which he wouldnt answer, and I asked him another question, which I cant remember, I dont think he answered that either. By the time I asked the third question he was getting pretty pissed off at me for bugging him. Then I woke up.

I had a dream about Spore Galactic Adventures. Except i was not playing the game I was actually IN the game as a Naucean spore hero. The weird part was people could see what i was doing in the game online and I would get paper postcards and mail commenting on my progress in the game. As for what I was doing i was in a desert planet in the dark night time fighting these insect-like aliens. It reminded me of starship troopers since it had those types of bugs only spore-style. But then i got captured and was held in a POW camp. I was working with other prisoner aliens to try to escape but I woke up before escaping. It was an awesome dream though. That's what I get for looking at the new YouTube clips of Galactic Adventures before going to bed.
