Spore demo in san fransisco apple store 22/06/2008
« on: June 21, 2008, 01:54:53 am »
I wonder if there's a topic about this already, namely about the newsflash on the spore homepage saying that ww will be demoing spore tonight in an apple store.

Wonder if there will be a video from that event. Might it be the first time that Spore is going to be demoed in it's near complete phase ?

I'm anticipating to see this video (if it will be recorded anyway :O)

Why the hell didn't you give us some warning? My college aunt lives in SF. She might've gone to it for me.

hmm, I honestly thought that someone would have picked that news up and that when i would create a topic it would have been a double post, so I didn't, untill now.

Anyway if it's on the spore site: there must be some media people recording it. (i hope anyway)

Unless you are not allowed to film.

They'll probably be showing off Civ or Space phase in my opinion, they haven't said much about those two. Need more information.

We've seen LESS of tribal, and that looks like my third favorite phase.

As I mentioned in a previous thread we should all keep our eyes peeled for our creations in any demos and screenshots from now on. I would guess there using the Sporepedia to populate the test games in readiness for the launch.

Would be cool if someone spotted one of there creations.

Ok I was able to make the trip down to see this event, unfortunately it was last minute planning so I don't have any video. and some of the pictures I took were from my phone and didn't come out so well. hopefully others will have better images. I may post some later when I upload them.

Other then the above, it was an absolute BLAST at the event. It was only an hour long an Will didn't get to show us everything he wanted to. the phases that we saw the most of was Creature and Tribe. Yes tribe. We did get to see all the phases though. Since it's late and i just got home from the event (I live in the Sacramento area, makes for a long drive home) Post some questions people and I'll see what i can do to Answer them.

Few things up Front. I got to ask a few questions so I can give the answers to those, and I'm paraphrasing here as I didn't take exact notes, So please don't take these as exact quotes.

Q. Will creating buildings in the Tribal phase be free form like the Civ phase

A. No, that was a feature we would have like to included but did not have enough time/resources to devote to it. Things like that will hopefully come later in the games lifespan, things like the Flora editor which we hope to have out sometime after release.


And also, I have an answer to the great, "it's too cartoony" debate.
