Game menu
« on: March 17, 2007, 08:44:35 pm »
The game menu defins the look of the game.  I haven't seen any discussions about it before.  Will it be a galaxy, or will it be in primordial ooze?

Discuss...

unless its hard to navigate the main menu holds nothing on the funtacular level of the game. I don't think i actually rember any main menus from a game. That said likely a galaxy

I hope it will be like the Sims 2. It shows like 3 galaxies for you to choose from and it goes on from there. And you can make galaxies as you go!

The galaxy can't be the MAIN menu, because it just had planets to select with the stages of evolution attached to them (Dunno how that part works though... I'm assuming it was for the demo only)

The MAIN menu will need something like "Start New Game" and stuff...
but we haven't seen anything about that yet.

Uh no each planet had a wheel menu that appeared when he hovered the mouse over them. The wheel menu had the stage choices on it

Do you think they changed the main menu to the galaxy rather than the green screen with icons and editors around (see below)?

I do too, it's making me nostalgic for the old tidepool look.

I like the galaxy better cause it reminds me of the old spore website with the swirling galaxy.

it's been a long time wsince i posted in this forum. So here it goes.

Both menus look very nice, i'm still very undecided which one looks better. I guess have a little *penchant* for the greenish menu.

Listening to the DICE summit talk of the Spore designers, they actually explain *why* the tidepool phase is so very cartoony. Apparantly they want the game experience to evolve form very happy, bouncy, cartoony to progressively more realistic. With the Space game being the most realistic.

Hopefully one day, say Spore 4, they will be able to create a game that is realistic al the way through.
