Spore from Maxis

OK, so I'm probably the last blogger in the universe to get onto this, but Spore from Maxis looks like it could be one of the best games ever written.

You remember Maxis right? Responsible for the original city creation / simulation game SimCity, now in its fourth incarnation SimCity 4. SimCity 1 & 2 ate up hours of my time as I created and destroyed the most amazing sprawling metropolises. They also created the incredibly popular The Sims.

Well, how about if you could take a world from pre-life evolutionary soup and guide it through the creation of life to its colonisation by civilisation? How about if you could guide your races on to extra-terrestrial contact or war? And what if the other clans, cities, species and worlds that you came into contact with were not computer generated but based on creations from other players?

Google Video has a half hour tour through the game play sections. It's a bit long but it showcases the game superbly. I want, I want, I want!
