Is spore almost done?
« on: December 10, 2005, 06:24:52 pm »
How much longer until spore is ready to be used as a demo or to be shiped? it has been a long wait for all of us and i was just wondering how much longer it would be until the final project is completed. to me it almost looks done on the video and they have a while to labor on it.

Like a year. Read nearly any other spore topic, and people will have said something like, "Man, I don't want to wait another year!"

I don't mind waiting, I just wish we had an article or something once in a while.  Can't wait for E3.

Steve needs to set up a field trip for us to go to Maxis. :) Then we can all go and see Spore in the making!

*sings* The wheels on the bus go ...



Ever notice their logo looks alot like a planet? I know it's been their logo forever but i wonder if Will did that in the begining knowing that someday he would make Spore or alteast a Spore-like game.

Yepp, a year at least. They've been pretty damn sensitive about giving out information thus far, dontchathink.
I don't usually do signatures, but this is an exception.

Well the new Sporetalk pretty much cinches it - it'll be a while :(

I'm pretty glad it will be a year before the game comes out so they can take our suggestions and improve the game from the demo that they made even though the game looks great, why not make it greater.

I don't suppose someone would be willing to summarize the latest Sporetalk?  I really don't care to make the big download and then sit through an hour of Steve talking about stuff I'm not interested in to hear it.  (err... sorry, Steve.  Podcasts really aren't my cup of meat.  Gimme text!)
Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.

In the demo it seems as though the editor is done, so it would be very nice if they published a demo of the "Creature Editor", so we had something to play with :D

If anyone lives nearby them.. can you search thier containers for notes and trashed concept art?;)

I don't see how that would help.

Still, they probably have at least 6 months to go in terms of programming the major stuff before doing the final wrapping up and preparing for release later in the year.

It's danish, because I speak swedish, and that wasn't swedish.
