I just finished watching this video where Will Wright presents his latest game, Spore. I'd heard a bit about the game over the last six months or so, but I didn't realize how big it would be. This game is about bringing all the science of science fiction and reality into a big big simulation. From what I gather it's totally multiplayer as well, which, when you think about it, will make for some amazing interaction between players.
The even bigger picture is that Will Wright and Spore will help our civilization to understand our perspective in the galaxy and universe a bit better. I hope everyone can get a chance to paly this game.
Next step: God. :)
