Those pics settle it, a world populated only by Lovecraft's creations must be made. Now hopefully we can change the cloud cover and other visuals when we create a world.

Why do you think im so excited about Spore ;)

I forst heard of it when I wastched the GDC 2005 thing. The whole time Will was playing with the microbe I was thinking "Well, add a few more arms and some memberious wings and I could make a Mi-Go! And then on another planet Yithians! OH GOOD GOD I COULD TURN THE UNIVERVE INTO A LIVING NIGHTMARE! MWA HA HA HA HA HA"

Although I fear that Yithians might not be possible, since they have no legs, maybe they can use their arms to lift/move themselves, who knows.

Definately a fan!  Although, I don't think HPL himself ever really did or had any pictures done of his critters - mostly seemed to rely on the readers imagination taking off from the vaguely disturbing half-descriptions.

Any fans out there bought the movie yet?  (http://www.cthulhulives.org/cocmovie/index.html)  Totally fan made, done in black & white, silent film style.  The trailer looks quite good.

(EDIT:  Amazon.com reviews - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BQTC98/103-1241066-4127036?v=glance&n=130)

easy just make the legs and feet very small, although this might impare movement, unless you have the whol cone as a foot/leg, although it would then have to hop, spoiling the scary effect

Looking at lovecrafts creation i am thinking: Man that guy must have smoked alot of opium. Like many writers back then.
But hey those creatures are crazy, revolting, and scary. I just love em.
OK, both of you die and let us know what happens.

quite a large number of them are moving into the public domain, so if you've got some free time, you should be able to find some of them on the Internet, also they aren't that long so you can easily read them in a couple of hours.

Found a good pic of a Ghast:


Thinking back, in most of Will's games I have made mythos orientated. Hell, I filled the Sims 2 with lots of Cthulhu Mythos stuff. Cant wait to continue that trend is Spore.

Hey that looks really cool, I can probably see someone making it as an attempt at a kangeroo or something

HP Lovecraft was a really bad author. The fact that he was an Anglophile only made it worse.

Of course there will be magic in the game. It'll look just look scientific weaponry, or buildings created by natural means, but really the -origin- of these things are magic (up in our minds :3). I already plan to have my avatar species a magic-oriented spacefaring race. Design everything with magic in mind, and whilst you achieve the same effect, the little story that unfolds in your head will be different.

Weapon -> Projectile

Player says :
SCIENCE! / MAGIC!
