Spore on the Move

The time of no information has passed.
E3 2006 is here, and information on Spore is rearing its head once again.

For those that don't know, Spore is the only game of which I've ever followed the Development.
Spore is the codename for Sim Everything!
Because Spore Sounds much more interesting, the codename became the real name.
Essentially you start as a single cell organism, and develop into a dominant species with technological abilities of godlike proportions.

The innovation of this game is Twofold.
a) Player Generated content - All in-game content will be created by players of the game.
b) Procedural Content - Animation, Textures & Entire Galaxy in a Box will be created via algorithms.

As for release date: April or Early May 2007

I'm excited to play. You just might be too.

Edit - The Game has an OFFICIAL release date. Sept 5 2008 - MY BIRTHDAY.

OK technically that is the European release date - in the US, it is releasing on the 7th.
