"The Sims" creator lets people play god with "Spore"

Computer buff Will Wright created a multi-billion-dollar franchise with "The Sims" video games that let people play at real life affairs such as dating, working and raising children.

Now from September, Wright will let people play god with his latest brainchild "Spore."

"The big hook with 'Spore' is that practically the entire game is user created," said Shane Satterfield, editor-in-chief at GameTrailers website. "'Spore' is really the first game that pretty much puts all the power in the hands of the player."

Players start as microscopic life forms competing for survival in primordial ooze and work their way onto land, where they evolve into creatures that build civilizations and rocket into space.

The story is too old to be commented.

MUST HAVE! I have waited since E3 06 and if it is delayed one more time I will kidnap Will Wright and demand the game as ransom.

Not a very smart thing to say on the net there, f7. How much detergent did you drink before posting?

I think the comment was funny, and we know it's a joke. I agree, though back when I first saw the demonstration of this game so long ago I've been really wanting it, more than I've wanted LittleBigPlanet.
I had a lot of fun with the game Black & White, this seems similar in a way, but way better.
I can't wait.

I thought I played God in Black&White... Hmmm... he must be referring to a Limited Edition Spore that comes with a white beard, a toga, sandals, and a halo.
