What's new, new media?


Will Wright is a prominent computer game designer responsible for some of the most popular and innovative collaborative gaming titles including SimCity and The Sims. He is the co-founder of the video game development company, Maxis. His latest game Spore is scheduled to be released in early 2007. Spore will allow the player to start with a single-cell organism, evolve and modify it in almost limitless ways into a sentient creature, create a civilization of said creatures, and eventually explore an entire galaxy of worlds populated with creatures and civilizations designed by other players and dispersed through the Internet. Like his previous games, "Spore" will emphasize user involvement in the creation of the game's landscape and narrative.
