Time Waster Game Depository
« on: April 15, 2006, 08:35:43 pm »
So I see you fellows like time wasting Java Apps, Flash, et cetera that remind you of Spore. So, I figured they needed a list for quick reference. The more we get, the more useless things we can do to grind down the days, like reducing blocks of marble with spoons. Have Fun! ;D

Various Gravity Simulators:
A Scale Model of the Solar system
Let's Make a Solar System. The name is incorrect, more like watch it go round and round. Fun to play with, as the planets more resemble ping-pong balls.
Many Moons Simulator Random sim of planetoids based on some law of gravity. Like the above, no collisions.
Gravitation 3.8 Collision and Gravity Simulator, the best so far. It is also downloadable for offline wastage
The Previously Featured Orbit Sim Much more complex than any of the above.

Cell Stage & Evolution Games:
Flow A game similar to the Spore Cell Stage
An Amoeba evolution simulator You don't actually do anything. However, its interesiting to leave on in the background and come back.
Fun with Procedural Animation
Fluid Simple Cell Like Game
Spore Knock-off Not exactly done, as you can't die... or kill the last boss. Good to play with
Sporabee 1.5 Spore Wanna-be (Cell Stage)
Sporabee 2 Spore Wanna-be (Aquatic Stage)

Misc.
Some Falling Sand Strange Game that appeared on Fark around Christmas

Any more TWs feel free to post, I'll add them to the list.
Note: None of these are mine, I just think they're neat.

Its not bad to have a list here too, not everyone goes to or knows of Spore Wiki.  Honestly, I prefer this site to the wiki, at least until the game comes out and things really get going.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.

People generally don't go to the wiki, read the FAQ, or read the rules. So it goes.

Then you should at least put some text there not just a link if you want people to use it.  In this thread I mean.

Cool; I took a look at that list, found some interesting ones. Also, Updated the thing itself.

In WW's GDC '06 Presentation, Wright used a program called "BIOME" to show life in the galaxy. Anyone know anything about that?
