Spore Creature Creator Goes FlatS

Have you ever wanted to smash your Spore creations flat? EA's newly-released Spore Creature Creator 2D saves you the trouble.

Spore Hero for the Wii and Spore Hero Arena for the Nintendo DS are still several weeks away, so EA offers up the Spore Creature Creator 2D to help keep fans occupied until October 6th rolls around. The 2-dimensional version of Spore's popular creature making application features a nifty paper-cutout art style that will doubtlessly make your creations all the more charming or disturbing, depending on your preference. It features more than 250 body parts, and once you're done with the Frankenstein act you can play with your new life form in a Spore Creature Trainer mini-game.

"Spore Creature Creator 2-D offers players a brand new way to express their creativity and share their creatures as it can be played by anyone with internet access," stated Caryl Shaw, Sr. Producer of Spore Creature Creator 2-D. "The clean art style and intuitive point-and-drag functionality makes it easy for creators of all ages to get in on the fun. It'll be interesting to see how players use this new creative application."

How players use it? Well, with the ability to send an e-card of their creature to friends, I suspect that the Spore Creature Creator 2D will inspire a horde of sexually suggestive creatures you can collect and trade.
