Official description
From the mind of Will Wright, the creator of The Sims, comes SPORE , an epic journey that takes you from the origin and evolution of life through the development of civilization and technology and eventually all the way into the deepest reaches of outer space.

* Tide Pool Phase
Fight with other creatures and consume them to adjust the form and abilities of your creature. It's survival of the fittest at the most microscopic level.

* Creature Phase
Venture onto land and help your creature learn and evolve with forays away from your nest. The only way to grow is by taking chances!

* Tribal Phase
Instead of controlling an individual creature, you are now caring for an entire tribe. Give them tools and guide their interactions as you upgrade their state of existence.

* Civilization Phase
Once your city is established, your creatures begin seeking out and interacting with other cultures. Make contact with an olive branch or a war cry. The goal for your creatures is to conquer the planet.

* Space Phase
The time has come to move on to other worlds in your solar system. Make contact, colonise, or terraform, then venture further to find other solar systems. A 'mission' structure provides new goals in your quest for galactic dominance.

2011-08-27. Just found a copy of this at a Goodwill store where everything is overpriced (ie: Police Quest disk only in damaged box, $29.99). Spore is the cheepest game here, marked "SUCKS! $0.03"

The Spore Creature Creator was released as standalone product in 2008-06 for people to populate the Sporepedia with (this turned out to be huge success). The creature creator is not a game in itself, but only the part that allows creating the creatures (like the name implies). Released as both free (with only fourth of the body parts available) and commercial version, the latter allowed people to get a discount on the final game when it got released.
