Spore: simulated amoebas
If you've ever thought you could do a better job than God, here's your chance to shine. Sims creator Will Wright has a new game called Spore that was due to come out this fall, but now appears to be scheduled for release in June of 2007.
The game allows you to create your own life forms and guide them through the Tide Pool Phase, where your little dudes are microscopic single cell organisms, all the way to the Space Phase, where you'll find yourself terraforming planets. If you want, you can try to make your creature a cute little fuzzy animal, or go in the other direction and make a mutant, grotesque, enormous bug. You can even do some disturbing mixes and come out with something like the picture above. Your creatures can be pretty much whatever your perverted mind desires.
