Caryl Shaw knows how to pull of presentations. Gamespy wrote their take from her presentation.
After introducing us to the basic concepts, Shaw gave us a tour of the game in action. The goal of the Sporepedia is to encourage discovery, reward players for creating cool things, expose players to the best content, and to allow people to make qualitative judgments of the content they like.
Joystiq has also uploaded their article about Spore content too.
When users get their hands on the creation tools, they may be surprised at the depth of their control. Besides fully fledged gaming consoles serving as buildings, Shaw also showed off an owl shaped spaceship, a craft that bore an eerie resemblance to Katamari Damacy’s prince and … a sentient race of Cheetoes. Really.
