Sim Universe? Will Wright's "Spore"

Dispite not being too fond of The Sims, I have always been a great fan of Will Wrights games, and I have to say im very excited about this new one:

http://www.gamespy.com/articles/595/...html?fromint=1

Looks almost like my perfect game, in fact

I'm not sure how the gameplay will turn out, would love to see it, might be a mucho fun.
But the way of coding the game, as described there, seems very cool.

Yeah, that coding thing reminds me of that shooting game that looked like "DAMN!" and the game was a 100 kb big or something.

No, apart from most of the game being procedral content created by its users, with the ability for any user to viste any other uses "world".
Nothing really special accept you can design your own creature and the game automaticaly works out how to animate it.
Nothing really special about the code being scaleable from high-end PCs right down to a DS version. (Which Will Wright mentioned on another site as a possibility).

Although I don't get everything, I am fascinated that Will is making a bigger breakthrough on gameplaying.

Could it be possible that the speech will be computer generated with no real human recording it (ie "robotic")?

I've read that like 2 weeks ago, and I thought: "I should post this on the MBN before Darkflame does"

Well...

I wonder if the level of personalisation is such that LBA races could be created? Imagine a tribe of Francos.

read.

Its not *The Game* though, thats a film.

But if your talking about the game, then you will have to wait untill Im in a position to make it, because Im going to make the game that will ownz all games.
Unfortunately, Will Wright has stolen a few of my ideas here, but at least he will lay the groundwork.....
