Spore gives players their own personal universe in a box.

Spore gives players a wealth of creative tools to customize nearly every aspect of their universe: creatures, vehicles, buildings, and even spaceships.
"Spanning hundreds of millions of years, Spore's scope is unprecedented in gaming. It has been a long time in the making and the team at Maxis is excited to finally share the game with the world," said Will Wright, chief designer at Maxis. "We can't wait to see the amazing worlds that our fans build, as they tell their own stories with the game."
"Spore is an outstanding achievement," said Frank Gibeau, President of the EA Games Label. "The blending of gameplay, editors and online community through pollinated content came together to deliver on Will Wright's big idea -- to create and control your own personal universe. The team at Maxis has built an extraordinary game that has the potential to become a platform for creativity, and innovation for years to come."
