‘Spore’ Video Game Creative, Challenging Sandbox

marcolano.JPGGAIM Program Director Marc Olano

The new video game ‘Spore‘ looks to be a hit because it is so different from other games out there. Will Wright has a reputation for creating sandbox games where the players are given the freedom to do whatever they want. The trick is to still preserve the sense of challenge of more scripted games. If you gave someone dice, would they invent craps or Yahtzee? Most wouldn’t. The cool thing about Spore is that it isn’t just one or two, but several distinct and unique games that, at least so far, look to be fun.
