Since the Spore Creature Creator was released a week ago, the Sporepedia has been flooded with over 1 million creatures of all shapes and sizes, from dogs to indescribable aliens.
The millionth creature was made by user FlamingChidori, and was named Sapiusgeenus. The creature is a green two-legged creature described as “one of my favourites so far”.
Lucy Bradshaw, the executive producer of Spore at Maxis, had this to say: “Maxis is excited, humbled and inspired by the explosion of creativity that we’ve seen with the Spore Creature Creator online. I’m amazed at the creations I see getting uploaded to the Sporepedia, whether it’s a realistic looking bird or animal, a 10-eyed alien, or something completely bizarre and unexpected like a creature that looks like a motorcycle, it’s clear that people have an innate desire to be creative, and we’re thrilled to help them express themselves.”
You can see the Sapiusgeenus and all the other weird and wonderful creature made by the questionably-minded users of Spore Creature Creator and view info about the game at Spore.com.
As a final note, we’d like to point out that penis-monsters are neither funny nor mature, so you should never, ever make them. Ever. You bunch of perverts.

EA’s announced that more than 250,000 Spore creatures have been created and shared in a single day, following the release of the aptly named Spore Creature Creator.
“The response to the Spore Creature Creator has been overwhelming,” said executive producer Lucy Bradshaw. “The creativity and passion that the community is putting into their creatures is spectacular. The development team has spent the last 24 hours checking out the amazing creations racing in from all corners of the globe – with peak volume hitting more than 1,000 creatures being shared a minute.”
Haven’t tried it yet? Neither have we. The Creature Creator demo’s free. Download it and make a 3D representation of a penis bumming itself. It’s de rigueur.

According to this Ripten piece, those in the UK that both pre-order Spore and buy the Creature Creator on July 17 will have the cost of the initial package removed from the full price of the game.
“In the UK, anyone pre-ordering the full Spore game, due out on September 5, through either EA Store or via selected retailers (GAME and Zavvi) will get a disc containing 100 percent of the CC (Creature Creator),” said an EA spokesperson.
“The only cash they will part with is whatever the pre-order deposit is (typically a £5). This money is deducted from the retail price of Spore when it arrives in September, meaning that the full CC is to all intents and purposes free in the UK.”
Bargain. If making little aliens and watching them run around is your “bag”, you really can’t say fairer than that.

It’s here. The Sporepedia is essentially a list of all the creatures made in the Spore Creature Creator, from the look of it, despite the fact it’s not being released until June 17.
In all seriousness, we want to hate this game, but seeing loads of daft animals lined up like that is quite cathartic. Please don’t be good. The full game’s out in September.
