Spore is an online game with its own ecosystem. The point of the game is to create creatures that not only survive in the ever-changing Spore environment, but develop and adapt to high intelligence. Players can then navigate their Spore creatures on adventurous journeys of discovery. You can play Spore online with other players or offline using only content you have created yourself.
