It's hard not to notice the similarities between Spore's Cell Phase and the PlayStation Network game flOw, and when you consider the co-founder of dev thatgamecompanthatgamecompany Jenova Chen was once on the Spore DS team it makes sense. flOw is pretty much a stylized, somewhat simplified version of what is going on in Spore's cell phase. You start off as a tiny, single-celled organism and then you grow, your abilities growing along with you as defined by your choices in the game's creature creator. It looks to be an entertaining little opening sequence to kickstart your new creation's evolutionary process.

I'm really looking forward to this game. I didn't think much of it from the reading. But seeing the cute lil buggers swim around and chomp on each other, just interest me.
