EA has confirmed that the demo of the highly anticipated Spore
, which includes the creature creator mode from the full game, will be available June 17th.
The creature creator mode gives players a chance to go fully hands on with the alien editor and design their own monsters from scratch, adding limbs and shaping bodies however they want. It's something that we certainly thought was very impressive in our hands-on preview of Spore
late last year.
The best news though is that any creatures you design in the demo can then be easily transfered over to the full retail version of the game, whether you made your monsters on a PC or a Mac. The full game is scheduled for release in Europe on September 5th - a full two days before the US release.
“We are thrilled to finally be putting the creative tools of Spore into the hands of players around the world,
” said Will Wright, chief designer of the game, in a public statement.
“The amazing creations players design this summer will help populate the game universe we all enter when Spore ships this September, so in a sense, the Spore Creature Creator is the birth of Spore.
EA will be hosting the demo of the game at the official site
, and has confirmed that the creator will have previously mentioned features such as automatic YouTube uploads. Sounds good, right? Let us know what you think in the forums
