To be honest, it sounds like a publicity stunt......

... heck, it IS a publicity stunt.

Someone go call Orly :P

1) Kotaku's list includes only SOME of the celebrities.

2) Many of the celebrities listed are VERY influential people in various circles. It's clear that they're trying to appeal to a variety of people, not just sci-fi fans. For instance, Richard Branson is by far the most spontaneous / innovative businessmen on Earth. Kevin Rose is the defacto leader of the social networking revolution (Digg owner/founder). Mark Cuban is a very famous billionaire dot com guru / owner of the NBA Mavericks. Curt Schilling is regarded as the one of the greatest pitchers in American baseball history. And the list goes on and on!

Picking Lucas and Spielsberg would be nice, but it'd be a mistake to confine the list to only creative, sci-fi people.


i'm a fan of the GDC 2005 Spore video on Google Videos...

they could also mix up universes, like let lara croft make a creature, (the current personification of her),

I've seen Carlos Santana play live :P
Me too! It was great...

Maybe he'll make a pair of maracas..or bongos or something.

Yep.... that's definitely what Spore is all about.... maraca and bongo creatures  :-\

Maybe it's just me and my utter hate for celebrities and EA's marketing ploys... but... this idea of 'celebrities' playing with it before I do just annoys me.

I don't mind if gaming-enthusiast and comedian Robin Williams messes with it, or maybe Stan Lee (even though I never really liked a lot of his work)... but when it comes down to some actors and actresses, that I've never even heard of, and people with probably no creativity... I'd much rather see Jennifer Reitz or Hydro, getting it before they do...
At least I know that Will Wright even used Hydro's creature designs.... what has Ellijah Wood ever done for Spore!? I ask you, what!!!??

Apparently some people already have it, like the description on this video:

We got our demo version of Spore Creature Creator earlier tonight. My first order of business: make another awesome-tastic beastie. Peakrok here defies logic and physics, but that just makes it even more intriguing. Note the adorable way it plays with its kids if you leave it be. D'awwwww!

This critter is available on the Sporepedia! Just search for "Peakrok" or look under the user name "zerochan" to find it.

Here is one creature of mine I will be making when the Creature Creator comes out. It's a VERY old design of mine, but I felt compelled to update it for D&D4E recently. I wonder how it might be made in Spore. I think that there will need to be some changes.

maybe you can attach some limbs on the head, and some how make them stiff to look like that head.

There might be a bug that can make limbs go stiff....who knows.

Mouth and head shape should be possible.

Tail looks like a spear, maybe an unusually short spear could be used there.

hmmm, good challenge.

I liked U.J. better Jenny :P

It's pretty cool and I love the detail, but I can't help thinking of a mother-in-law with curlers of DEATH in her hair, designed to kill any potential son-in-laws who doesn't meet her considerable expectations ;)
