Evoultion - The Game
« on: April 04, 2006, 04:58:55 pm »
As we all know evoultion is not limited by our imgination's alone. Enviroment, food and culture (amongst other things) will all be key variables that we must take note of while playing Spore. It will be our job to channel the course of evoultion and make sure our creature ends up on top of the food chain.

This game, in a nut-shell, is a dumb-downed version of Spore. We will be taking a single celled ameboa (hand drawn, not computer animated) from it's early stages in the primordial ooze into a brave new world and beyond.

The evoultionary path of our creature will be determined by the following: Player A posts a picture of a creature (me in this case) he/she then states a dilema/perdicument/problem that it has to overcome via evoultion. Player B then draws a picture of the evolved creature along with a brief explanation of it's evolved status. He/she then puts forward another dilema/perdicument/problem for the creature. The next person then does the same, and so on and so on.

I'll start with my mediocre drawing of a single celled amobea:

The Creature:



The Dilema:

It seems as though another creature is stealing all of our creature's food before it can get to it. Our creature needs a way to get more food so hat it can survive.

Ready? Go!

this seems to be better than that other one, except that its just one creature rather than two alternating ones.

I know this is a game and technically would go in the forum games section, but since its more geared to spore and it has ppl drawing stuff, maybe we can have it here. although if the mods opinions differ and it gets moved, thats fine with me.

as for those that don't have some art program or scanner, just use artpad.com (I think it has problems saving sometimes though) or just do something in MS paint, save as .jpg and put it on some image hosting place.

it doesn't have to be as artistically good as the OP's pic, it can be a simple sketch. we aren't going for best art here, so as long as ppl can get what you are doing for your part of it, its fine :)

and I guess that could work patsplats

well MS paint normally comes with windows, unless you're on a mac and just use a free hosting site like photobucket.com

patsplats: If you create a smal dilema for your newly evolved creature then I'll be more than happy to create a quick sketch of it. Does that sound alright to you?

Dilema or picture?

If you are talking about picture, which you most probaly are, then Save It. Then goto Image Shack. Load up your picture and click Host. Then copy the Forum link they give you and and paste it into your reply.

Cool. Can you add a problem for it to overcome so that the next stage of evoultion can take place (does not have to be included in your picture, just write it out, like I did)?

problem: a set of fast blood suckers come up from behind the ameoba before it can defend.

I think a better one would be: a new species of blood suckers has decided our creature will make nice prey.
Vivec, you're the best forum member ever.

1. Ameobas don't have blood to suck.
2. That situation seems rather LaMarkian...
