No Spore This Year

Unfortunately it's been reported that Spore isn't releasing this year. Which bums me out because I've really been looking forward to it. Oh well, the revolution will have to wait another year :(

If you don't know what Spore is, well, it's time you found out about it. Seeing it end to end for the first time can be a religious experience. But given that people might have various levels of interest, I'll give you some choices:
  • Original full presentation - The hour long GDC 2005 talk by Will Wright. If you're a geek like me, you'll appreciate the whole back story and all the commentary on procedural methodology.
  • Original demo - The half hour demo portion from the above 2005 presentation
  • Gameplay clips - Three minute reel from GDC 2007
  • Flash Movie - Only like a minute long, but does a surprisingly good job of summing up what the game is all about
