Electronic Arts recently asked me to participate in a bit of Sporelebrity.

The publisher handed out 50 or so copies of the Spore Creature Creator to a bunch of celebrities (and me) and asked them to create a single, marvelous creature. This eclectic selection of creatures will then be posted on an Electronic Arts site for people to vote on next week. The winner gets $15,000 donated to the charity of his or her choice.

Good thing none of these people are rich, powerful or creative... man I'm screwed. Maybe I should take the low road and create a giant penis creature? Neah, it's too much fun making abominations to God.

@Atheist Jew: For the record, the animations are procedurally generated based on the shape of the creature, so animation information is not stored on the jpeg. The rest, however, totally is, which is amazing. But hey, if all creations with the editor can be reduced down into a seed key for procedural re-generation, it would figure. I just wonder if this will somehow affect how complex you can get with your creatures.
