Will Wright's much anticipated new game "Spore" now has an official release date: September 7 of this year. The game will be released simultaneously on PCs, Macs, Nintendo DS, and mobile phones. Either that Nintendo DS and my mobile phone are a lot more powerful than I thought, or the mobile Spore will be significantly different from the PC and Mac version.
I wonder whether the game will be any good. There is so much hype surrounding it, that it will have trouble living up to it. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a passable collection of mini-games plus social networking, and nothing more.
