I can't remember where I saw this but it has to be one of the coolest games I've seen in a long time. I think I read it on another forum or something but I boomarked the page.

It's an evolution game. It looks a little weird at first but go through the whole video preview. It's pretty damn cool. Not sure if it's for Windows or Mac though. Anyone seen this or know more about it?

Yup, quite a few threads on the subject. This game is highly anticipated. It has also been announced for some gaming consoles also right?

Yup
Well, actually we are going to go on all platforms, but we will come out on PC first. We will even come out on cell phones and stuff. One of the things in the game is that as you go around and encounter things… creatures and plants, or whatever, you make trading cards of each thing. That is the metaphor for the database -- trading cards. So you can collect your cards. You can print them out. You can now play your own card game. That might be like the cell phone part. That stuff is so light. It's more about collectability as opposed to interaction. Every creature in the PC game is three or four megabytes. But the cards, that is the database that the player is building.

Is it just coming out for xbox or other consoles?

P.S. I've been laughing for about five minutes reading your Sig. Risc. Lol

I think this game would only be well done on a PC.

The module based universe of everyone creating their own creatures/content and then being able to upload that an online server which populates the universe everyone plays in, would only work well with a computer. IMO.

Plus you cant compare a mouse to a controller.
