Certain moments, a man never forgets: graduations, weddings, the birth of his first slavering Scuzzraptor. Electronic Arts' Spore, a 3D Petri dish that allows evolution of custom-made creatures from unicellular microbe to space-faring conqueror, does for Darwinism what Super Mario Bros. did for magic mushrooms. When connected online, the game silently uploads and catalogues personalized beasts, buildings, and vehicles in a central database. It then grants creators virtual immortality by using the creations to populate fellow players' worlds.

Spore, the highly-anticipated new game from Sims creator Will Wright, is set to go on sale this September. The game, which we described in detail in this article on Wright, was supposed to come out last year. But the delays arent a huge surprise considering that Wright has invented a game that essentially lets players manage the evolution of creatures from single-cell organisms into complex, space-conquering life forms.
