Spore Creature Creator germinates June 17

Gamers to showcase intelligent (or otherwise) design with demo and retail versions; Frankenstein fauna will be importable into full version of Spore.



Will Wright's Spore won't be spotted in stores until September, but those eager to tinker with the fabric of life can start mucking about with Mother Nature much earlier. Electronic Arts today announced that the Spore Creature Creator will be available worldwide beginning June 17.

The full retail version of the Creature Creator will be sold only at retailers in North America and at most European territories, for $9.99 and €9.99 respectively. However, a free downloadable demo will be made available from the game's official Web site on the same day. The demo includes about 25 percent of the full version's various creature parts. Both versions will let players share their creations with others and will include a way to seamlessly upload videos of the creatures to YouTube.
