Spore: "Queue Glorious Music"
Posted: Wednesday February 13th, 2008 by

Earlier yesterday EA (Elecronic Arts) and Maxis announced a September 7th release date for Wil Wright's much anticipated phased evolution simulator Spore.

It was kind of hard for me to write that short, one sentence, news opener because I have no idea how exactly to classify Spore or toss it into a specific genre. Like the creations themselves, the game changes as the characters evolve. It has such open ended gameplay and extensive design scope that I refuse to try to slap a label on it from an existing game style.

Like many other gamers out there, I've been waiting on Spore for what seem like forever. And despite assurances that the game would be released "soon" the constant delays made me worry that we were looking at a Duke Nukem Forever situation. So when news dropped yesterday that the game had a set release date, I swore I heard angelic singing and was washed in soothing, heavenly light. Granted, I may very well have a tumor and the sheer excitement of the announced release date jostled it enough to temporarily press on my brain stem.

We probably won't know for sure until September.
