I dreamed about spore.
« 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.
Since when is being "normal" a requirement for survival? Exactly.

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

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

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.
Riot grrrrl!

No dreams for me yet, but I have a feeling my dreams (or nightmares) will be a grand creative muse for creature designs.

It was Pinstar's idea for the bowl shaped head...

I cant remember what I dreamt last night...

But I've been listening to Dragostea din tei too much...

Numa numa iei!
