Back in 2008 a game was released on PC called SPORE. This game was and still is a huge success winning several awards and creating an almost cult like following. The game Spore is basically all about creating your own life and universe as you start off as a single cell life form. From there you go through the 5 stages of evolution: Cell, Creature, Tribe, Civilization, and Space. It is very unique since you don’t even have to go through all of that required process you can just stay on the planet and create endless combinations of vehicles, buildings, creatures, and spaceships with the amazing creator tools.
- CREATE Your Universe from Microscopic to Macrocosmic – From tide pool amoebas to thriving civilizations to intergalactic starships, everything is in your hands.
- EVOLVE Your Creature through Five Stages – It’s survival of the funnest as your choices reverberate through generations and ultimately decide the fate of your civilization.
- EXPLORE your world and beyond – Will you rule, or will your beloved planet be blasted to smithereens by a superior alien race?
- SHARE with the world – Everything you make is shared with other players and vice versa, providing tons of cool creatures to meet and new places to visit.
While Spore is a single player game, your creations and other players’ creations are automatically shared between your galaxy and theirs, providing a limitless number of worlds to explore and play within. The online system updates and shares the creations so you can compete and compare your lifeforms. All started from a single cell spore.
This game is an amazing example of how life could have formed exactly in this manner. Who knows… maybe we are all just inside some amazing complex game being controlled by external beings just like in this SPORE game. Sort of like the Matrix. I guess we will never know.
