Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Spore Thread: A Massive Singleplayer Online Banning Experience
It's nearly here! And to make up for PAX being all the way across the world, Australia gets it 3 days before the US! (nearly 4 since we're like 18 hours ahead of you guys)
Not to be a bastard about it but we're used to getting screwed over here so it's nice to have something for a change.
It is going to be pretty damn cool! Five different gameplay styles, including a sandbox space mode which will keep us going for a long time, kick ass procedural animations, and passively multiplayer creature sharing, which means over that hill is probably a frickin' stampede of dick monsters.
You all know the creature creator was released months ago, and SE++ came up with some pretty damn awesome creatures, so as soon as the game comes out I will be creating a Sporecast for SE++. What's a Sporecast? It's like an RSS feed for Spore creatures, and like an RSS feed you can subscribe to it and have your worlds seeded by whatever is shared!
So among others, you can look forward to running into these guys:
And the awesome thing is that you can drag those pictures in that spoiler into the game or the Creature Creator, and you've got the creature! The beauty of procedural creature generation at work, folks.
TALK ABOUT SPORE! Update: I've created the SE++ Sporecast, it's called Social Entropy Plus Plus, if you search in game or on Sporepedia you can see all our creations! Click here to see it in the Sporepedia
If you'd like to be part of the SE++ sporecast, post your Spore username in this thread and I'll add you as a buddy and will endeavour to add all your creations to the Sporecast (at this point I don't think I can do that automatically)
Everybody's latest items don't seem to be showing up in the search yet, so I'm going to list everybody who I've added to the Sporecast; if you add them as a buddy, you should get their latest stuff as well.
