Well if a creature could divide like cells then the species would be able to overpopulate the world in no time. It's be to powerful.

Mummy, why am I short and cuboid shaped? Is it a result of millions of years of evolution which have taught us that this is the best shape for survival.

i think you guys are turning an incredible simple game into something more advanced than it really is.  it isn't really healthy to overhyp a game this much but we can still dream.

nothing says it won't be in the game. We don't know much about the game yet.

That may be true, Tarious, but remember Fable. We mustn't forget the letdown that was Fable. A lot of people just hated the game because they were built up so much by places like this, and forgot that it's a good game anyway. Just keep in mind over half of what we suggest feasable won't be in it. And don't get your hope too far up.

We're going to need a stickie telling people to play the game and enjoy it for what it is, not what the everything syndrome dictates it should be.

I see what your saying about telling people not to overhype themselves.  That was the specific issue that spawned the everything syndrome... (which by the way you owe me royalties for invoking it's name :D)

But I think it's something most people learn after they follow a game from the ground up... I mean the first time, you expect that game to clean your house when it's not in use!  But games after that you realize deep breathes of reality are necessary.  I think people have to figure that out for themselves.  Unless this game is a pr nightmare info will be relased about it every now and then... so we should have some facts to throw around.

At this point we are just swimming through the soup looking for things to eat :o

Maybe steve should address this in a podcast,  he could probibly give his opinions about the scope and focus of the game and sound credible.

Being left in the dark sucks, but it's just a natural part of a game's development. We're lucky to ahve the info we do. A game like this probably should have had a very small video displaying what it did, but not with Will Wright making it!
-Just like Gaming Steve all of my ideas, suggestions, and comments are merely edjucated guesses. These are based on prior experience and current released info.-

Has Will Wright made a game that isn't a hit?

We can start with Sim Earth. There are others.
