PSA: Beware of Sporn

So as you may be aware, Will Wright (creator SimCity, the Sims, and everything else Sim) has been working on a rather ambitious video game for the last few years called Spore. The concept is that the player will get to guide and manage the development of a life form from its origins as a single cell organism all the way up to the trials it will face as a space faring society, all the while interacting with creatures, cultures, and civilizations pulled from a centralized database of other players’ creations. If you’d like to know more, a simple Google or Youtube search will yield you a wealth of information on the game that is likely to pique your interest.

Anyway, it’s finally nearing completion and is scheduled to be released for the Mac and the PC this fall, and as a bit of a demo they have released the creature creation tool for one of the middle stages of the game, where your creatures have evolved into a complex tribal species. The full version is selling for $10, but a free trial with about a quarter the content can be downloaded here.

Now, I did want to make sure you folks knew about the game in general, but I also wanted to provide you with ample warning of what is sure to be the latest inescapable and potentially psychologically damaging NSFW internet meme: Sporn. After all, simple logic dictates that if you give the internet a fun, creative tool, it will give you in return giant dongs, humping monstrosities, and recreations of old internet favorites. So, consider yourselves duly warned, and enjoy. ;)

    That’s awesome (the game…though I’ll admit some amusement with the sporn as well). You’ve probably already seen this, but for those who haven’t, the penny arcade post from yesterday has a link to someone whose created a deep crow
