We’ve played games like the Sims that allow you to build something or someone from the ground up and watch it work. I’ve played Age of Empires, allowing you to develop a civilization from caveman-hood to space age.

This is in that same vein, just sounds ever so much cooler.

It’s called Spore.

Spore allows you to take an organism from cellular form through its evolutionary stages over the course of millions of years culminating in a “Galactic Entity”, or in other words, God.

Apparently, rumors of this game’s release have been abounding for several years. But it appears now that a release date in September of this year.

The amount of customization is supposedly beyond compare. What could be better than playing God?
