The best way to characterize Spore is to say that it’s a personal universe in a box. You play the role of God and you start creating life forms that evolves thru 5 stages: cell, creature, tribe, civilization, and space. Spore was produced by EA’s Maxis Studio and the mind behind the game is Will Wright ( The Sims).
