We seem to have been waiting for SPORE since we were in the amoeba phase ourselves. But there is light at the end of the primordial ooze - The SPORE site tells us that we will have joy in September and before that (June 17) we will get to play with the creature editor. There are also press releases for SPORE on the iPhone, Nintendo DS, Mac and more.
[a few screenshots to keep us all going - the site has vids as well of course]
It will be great to see people playing a game with design as a core tenant which calls attention to evolution and as well - very cool.
