The Future Of Virtual Worlds – Will Wright: Toys that make worlds
Will Wright, creator of the Sims and Simcity, talks about and shows off his new game, Spore, where you control everything from single celled organisms up to whole universes. And it looks like fun. The editing tools are generations away from Second Life’s. Imagine controlling the coast line of your island by altering the CO2 balance in the atmosphere so the sea level rises? Or altering it so much that runaway warming sets in and turns the whole thing to molten lava?
And the creatures are cute too.
