IGN is covering the 5 stages of Spore every week up until Spore’s release.  This week, they discuss the Creature Stage.  You can watch this video over at IGN or check it out on YouTube below:

In Creature Stage, you can still create and evolve a creature, but you’ll need to do so by accumulating DNA points by eating things. You can spend those DNA points to add arms, legs, and other body parts to your creature. And you can also scavenge special abilities from fallen creatures. But there’s more to life than just eating and trying not to be eaten; you can make friends, too. To find out more, just watch the video above. And then keep an eye open next week, when we take a look at Tribal Stage, the middle chapter of Spore.
