Design your creatures. Then extinct them.
Today will see the launch of Spore, a complex and funny simulation by “The Sims”-Designer Will Wright. You design the creature you like – i.e. a cow with earlobes, just one legs and a cute set of mandibles – and drop it in an ecological enviroment. Now you can control it from the prehistoric stages to space age. Ideal for unusual presentations and a lot of wasted time.
Oh – and make that cow a carnivore. Seems to be more interesting.
