EA and Maxis have confirmed that the Spore Creature Creator will launch worldwide on June 17. It'll be available for download in demo form, or there'll be a full-fat version at retail.
"The Spore Creature Creator," says EA, "gives Spore fans, and those who are creatively curious, the first hands-on opportunity to design their own species and share it with their friends.
"All creatures designed with the Spore Creature Creator can be imported into the full retail version of Spore for PC and Mac when it launches on September 5, 2008 in Europe and September 7, 2008 in North America."
The retail version carries a 9.99 euro price tag andgoes for$9.99in North America. No UK price has been given yet, but 9.99 euro works out as just under eight quid.
However, if you don't want access to all the creature-making parts in the game, then the demo will be downloadable from Spore.com and is also included in the The SimCity Box which is out June 23.
"The demo lets players shape, paint and play with an unlimited number of creatures, using 25 percent of the creature-making parts from Spore. Gamers can then share these creations with their friends, including seamless uploads to YouTube," says EA.
Presumably you'll be able to use the YouTube functionality in the retail version of the Spore Creature Creator too.
