Killer Spore

About a week ago I posted this entry on a Will Wright interview and also made mention of a link to a video (the Will Wright/Spore one). Well, I tried to watch that video, couldn’t get it to play, then didn’t get back to it. Turns out I had browser issues. So yesterday I made my way back and watched it. Wow. It’s much better than I had imagined. But before you watch the video, check out this speculative article on the future of character design/creation. That way, when you watch all the cute characters shown in the Spore demo, you’ll be aware that it doesn’t have to look “cartoony”. It could look as good as this (mature content).
