Thomas Vu's Interview By Bit Tech

"One of the things we only just added is, when youre in Tribe Stage and you dance in front of other towns to socialise with them, they can score you and hold up scorecards. Its always fantastic to see people sit back and be like A four? A four sucks!"

"Quirky cinematic sequences track the development of a player's creature. In one sample video, as a creature begins to form a civilization, the short parodies Stanley Kubrick's famous simian sequence from 2001: A Space Odyssey."

Spore: General / Gamespot Article
« on: February 13, 2008, 09:13:35 am »
New Spore article on Gamespot from hands on demo in London.

http://www.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/spore/news.html?sid=6185948&tag=newlyadded;title;1

Not very long article, but some interesting parts:

"Spore has a very dry sense of humour, and it calls on you to collect creatures for your own nefarious ends. However, there's a downside to your scientific experimentation, and in our demo we managed to introduce a rogue infection to our city by collecting bug-ridden creatures. The result: You have to eradicate the surrounding colonies with your onboard laser, using the left mouse button to fire. Before you can start exploring and colonising other worlds, your final task on your home planet is to colour it purple, although we couldn't quite understand why."

Also a little more detail on populating planets.

"The first planet that we visited was completely barren and needed development before life could inhabit it. We equipped our ship with a variety of plants and used the tractor beam to drop them on the ground. With vegetation available, the next step was to introduce herbivores, with the setup complete once carnivores were dropped on the planet."

Enjoy!
