conversation on IM between me and a friend of mine who's russian: (names replaced)

"5:09pmMe
can you translate this for me?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLq19Gf9JGc

5:10pmFriend
you want me to translate three minutes worth of talking?

5:11pmMe
well, do they say anything important that i might want to know?

5:11pmFriend
sounds like an advertisement so far
lol...they say a few million years = 30 min of playing

5:12pmFriend
hmm...

5:16pmMe
yea, i lost connection or something

5:16pmFriend
anyway
that woman is the game's producer
there won't be any genders
to avoid BS like feminism
[they said that]

5:16pmMe
wait....soo...how do you reproduce?

5:16pmFriend
i guess they just...do?

5:16pmMe
oh...

5:16pmFriend
lol

5:17pmMe
anything else noteworthy?

5:17pmFriend
no

5:17pmMe
or not very noteworthy?

5:17pmFriend
no

5:18pmMe
just general info about the game?

5:18pmFriend
yup
when's the character-build thing come out?"

then he went on to get confused about what order the months go in...

What i got from this:
No genders - kind of strange but at the same time makes sense.
The comparison of game time to real time.

Sounds like game evolution is crazy fast if a few million years equals 30 min. of gameplay. An hour would be better :)

well it kind of depends. from cell to civ could easily take a lot longer than that but from civ to space would take a lot less then a few million years.

What is going to be interesting is no genders.

the friends I asked has been following Spore vaguely so he knows less than we do i'm sure and he told us everything that was new to him but it can't hurt to double check.

I guess I was thinking of the fast evolution in terms of the space phase. It just seems fast to throw a comet down on a planet and have it get water in just 30 min. It's probably good timing for the early phases though. Hell I don't care, I just wanna play it :)

it probably slows down by space phase, because i mean the cell phase, 30 mins for a few million years is probably too little, but by civ it probably gets slower

The time scale kind of reminds me of Civ4 where at first you game goes my thousands, and hundred of years down to 10s and then finally a year at a time.
