Video from San Fransisco 6/21/08

This is not my video, but I thought I'd share anyway.

Tape gets cut off right before it gets good :*(

***update***

Someone over at Gamefaqs boards was at the presentation and stated this

"Hey guys,

I just saw the Spore demo at the Apple Store today in San Fransisco. I took a short video with my camera, but they made me turn it off. I don't think I'm doing anything illegal by uploading this since I didnt have to sign any disclaimer or NDA; anyone could walk into the store and watch it.

Anyway, heres the link to the video...

And feel free to ask me any questions. He demoed quite a bit of the game and I found out alot of stuff I don't think I have seen elsewhere. Here are a few highlights I got from the presentation (which was awesome by the way).

-There are flying creatures! If you put wings on the creature you can fly... awesomeness.

-There are dynamic weather cycles

- You can see a moon in orbit from the planets surface

- There is no editor for vegetation or tribal structures - Will said they may be added after release

- You can create scavenger creatures and follow predators around and feed off their carcasses they leave behind.

-The game world is populated generally with creatures that have same level parts as you. They will evolve as you do as well.

-There is a timeline in that shows everything your creature has ever done, all the way from cellular to space phase (this is in the video I uploaded).

-There are epic creatures; very large gargantuan creatures. He demoed this in the tribal phase but first mentioned it was in the creature phase too. These can be killed and will supply your tribe with tons of food. He even mentioned you can ally with some of them.

-There are events, such as meteor showers and alien abductions, etc.

-In the tribal stage you can domesticate some animals, fish, gather, and hunt for food.

-There is a main goal to the space stage, PARTIAL SPOILER: which tells the origin of the metoeor that you originally came to your planet from. He did not reveal any more about this.

-There are three kinds of civilization cities, economic, religious, and military. Each city you own can only be one of these, and will only produce vehicles for this purpose. But you can have multiple cities that each have a different focus.

-The resource in the civilization phase and beyond is spice. You build spice refineries on these. Will said that spice is more common on old star systems, so you are most likely to find spice in certain types of solar systems (blue dwarfs if I remember correctly).

I am having issues uploading to youtube currently, I will update the thread when the video is up. "

wow this is neat:

that semi 3d cell creature is some kind of a launch editor for the creature stage, like you also have the launch creature for the cell stage befor the meteor scene ?

Also the thing that's way cool is the "getting out of the water stage" ..

and then, ZOMGFTWBBQ.. the movie stops (i just hope he uploads it in different parts)

That was all he recorded. If you read on the guys YouTube page, he must have been told to turn the camera off, because he said apparently there was no video cameras aloud in the store.

When his little horde of creatures comes out of the ocean, the landscape looks beautiful!  Reminds me of the GDC '05 video...  :D

I'd like to add, that video is horrible washed out compared to what you could see there. The color and detail looks so much better in person.

Man that was awesome! So it looks like in the end of the tide pool stage you could go around more like a fish sized creature. I wonder if that will be the point in which they add the expansion and have you choose where to stay in the water or go onto land for the creature stage.

Also i love the timeline! I was really hoping they would do that!!

yeah, and where in 2007 the general idea was that you actually start over with the creature on land as a blob, they chose to change that again with this "launch out of the water" editor as proof.

It says it got a lot more interesting after he had to stop filming - is there anyone here who was there, and if so, can they sum up what was said.

The cell stage looks excellent though, I hadn't seen that much about it before.

I like that time line thing he mentioned, wonder if it does that throughout the game.
