I’ve been waiting what seems like forever for some sort of Spore goodness, and finally my prayers have been answered. Today saw the release of the new Spore Creature Editor, which gives you a taste of how the game is going to look and feel. All you have to do is download and install it and you’re ready to go. I’m really happy that EA has decided to make this available for both PC and Mac, considering just how many people are switching over to Mac.
The little critters you see above are some that I made. I think I called the big one Baxter. The little things behind him are what his/her/it’s babies look like. The editor was actually pretty easy to use, although the free demo is limited to 25% of the customizable options. If you’re on PC you can purchase the full Creator for $9.95, but it’s not available for Mac users yet. The first creature I made though had a slight glitch, his legs kept going on backwards, but after I restarted it everything was totally fine. It’s really fun because you can literally do ANYTHING with what you make. Give your creature tiny arms or arms that drag on the ground, different types of skulls, feet, tails, claws, horns… and this is only describing the free 25%.
If you have any interest at all in this game definitely checkout the creature maker and waste some time making something awesome.
