> Redwood City, CA - January 15, 2008 - At the Macworld Expo today,
> Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced that SPORE(tm) will be
> available for the Mac later this year. From Will Wright, creator of the
> mega-hit The Sims(tm) comes Spore, the only game that allows creative
> personalities to explore the depths of their own personal galaxy. A
> sneak peek of the game will be on display at the Macworld Expo in San
> Francisco, CA throughout this week. A PC version of the game will also
> be released later this year.
> "We couldn't be happier to bring Spore to the Mac at the same time as
> the PC version. Spore is a highly creative game and I look forward to
> seeing what the players come up with to fill the universe they design,"
> said Will Wright, Chief Designer of Spore.
> Spore is your own personal universe in a box. In this universe you can
> create and evolve life, establish tribes, build civilizations and even
> sculpt entire worlds. In Spore you have a variety of creation tools at
> your disposal that allow you to customize nearly aspect of your
> universe: creatures, vehicles, buildings, and even spaceships. While
> Spore is a single player game, your creations and other players'
> creations are automatically shared between your galaxy and theirs,
> providing a limitless number of worlds to explore and play.
> "I am excited that we'll be able to bring Spore directly to the Mac
> community. The intuitive Creature, Vehicle, and Building Creators in the
> game are so powerful that the possibilities are limitless. Players can
> create anything they can imagine and see them come to life in the game,"
> said Lucy Bradshaw, Executive Producer of Spore.
> Spore is made up of five phases, each corresponding to a stage of
> evolution: cell, creature, tribe, civilization and space. Each phase
> presents different challenges and goals. You may choose to start with
> the cell phase and nurture one species from its humble aquatic origins
> to its evolution as a sentient species. Or you may decide to start
> building tribes or civilizations on multiple planets. What you do with
> your universe is up to you.
> Both the PC and Macintosh versions of the game will feature the full
> experience of cell through to space with editors for designing
> creatures, buildings, and vehicles. Spore for the Mac will be made
> possible through TransGaming's Cider Portability Engine, with experience
> gained from the past EA Mac titles.
