Over 1 million Spore creatures created in one week

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.
