I could have also named this post “how in god’s name did I not know about this game earlier”.
Rev 10-12 years ago, I used to play this nice Nintendo game called E.V.O.. I absolutely loved this game.
It would start with you (the player) as a small fish trying to eat your way through evolution. You would later get to be a dinosaur….. and so on.That was very nice. I played this game almost half of my life, just like StarCraft…
Fast forward 2008, enter Spore…. oh my god. Actually, what am I talking about… you can be your own god.
And how did I find this game? Browsing SpaceCollective and finding a TED video of Will Wright (part of my pantheon of e-gods) presenting the game. Just fell into my lap, literally.
If you like Sci-Fi, science, computers and games, you really must see this video of Will Wright describing Spore.
If this is old news for you… you could have told me earlier.
Oh yeah, “Happy new year!”
