    "Seeding his spores" elsewhere...?

    Hahaha!

    I just thought of "Wil Wright Wanders Wayward" but that's stretching things.

    "Wil Wright Wanders to seed Spores elsewhere"?

    He came up with a new idea and the evil EA empire told him to leave.

    I'm hoping that he left out of shame ;)

    Given the huge disappointment that was Spore, I don't think I'd trust anything to come out of his thinktank - apart from advice on how to massively overhype a game, then sit back and watch the dollarpounds roll in.

    Personally, I don't think that he's done a decent game since SimCity (or maybe I'm the only person who doesn't 'get' The Sims etc.) - I'd totally gone over to console gaming by the time Spore came out, but having played it on a friend's machine I was convinced that I'd made the right decision.

    I don't think that Will Wright is a major hype-meister (surely that title belongs to Peter Molyneux) but if it's ever announced that Molyneux is going to work for Will Wright's 'think tank' then I can be fairly confident that Apocalypse won't be far off :)

    Nah he'll just teach the movie industry to break their movies into 12 "expansions", releasing one a month for a year. ;)

    Though I had hoped it was related to Alice 3 development since they are going to be using the Sims 2 engine in the next iteration.
