See Spore in action

New video now on EG TV.

Leaked video footage of Spore, the latest game from Sims creator Will Wright, is now available for viewing on Eurogamer TV.

"Leaked" is the key word here, since this footage hasn't been released from an official source, but it looks very much like the same game we saw at GDC last year. The video shows off the creature editor, along with a bit of in-game action accompanied by some nice ambient music.

Spore, for those who don't know, puts you in charge of creating your very own species, evolving a single cell organism into an entire race that will eventually conquer other worlds. It's in development for the PC, and rumour has it that Xbox 360 and possibly even handheld versions are on the way too - but nothing's been confirmed as yet.
