Get a head start in the creature-creating processAlmost three months before the full PC retail version of Spore hits the shelves, Electronic Arts is releasing the Spore Creature Creator, a standalone game that will allow you to design your own species.
The creator will contain 25 per cent of the creature-making parts from Spore and once you've created your new creature you'll be able to share it with friends and import it into the full version, which is released in Europe on September 5th.
There will also be a free demo version of the Spore Creature Creator, which you can download from the official site in June.
The retail version of the Spore Creature Creator will be available in North America for $9.99 and most European territories for €9.99.
“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, Maxis. “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.”
