If Camp Batman Designed a Spore Creature...
Ever wonder what might happen if your favourite celebrity, or even one you've never heard of before, designed their own alien creature? Yeah, it never really occurred to SPOnG, either. But Electronic Arts is giving you the opportunity to find out nonetheless - and we will need to see what Adam West, history's campest Batman, comes up with.

The publisher has targeted 50 "creative celebrities" from pop culture and gaming for godhood. It plans to launch a website showing what craziness they come up with. Highlights from the list include the aforementioned Adam West, Carlos Santana, Mario Lopez (AC Slater from Saved by the Bell!), Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenage Witch!), Stan Lee (godfather of the Marvel Comics universe) and, of course, Will Wright. Wright's creature had better be damn good...

SPOnG also has a video of the space stage in Spore showing how the game can turn you into a fascist. As Kip Katsarelis, producer on Spore, talks us through intergalactic expansionism he tells us, "You might come across a creature that, you're just, like, 'that thing's ugly, I need to destroy it'". Yup, it's the start of the first of the Great Aesthetics Wars that eventually lead to the death of mankind.

You can see the video below and the full list of celebrities designing Spore creatures below that. As ever, you can get the latest Spore news and screens over on SPOnG's dedicated game page.
