Spore producer Thomas Vu has confirmed that the game is less than a week away from going gold.
Speaking to CNET, the producer also commented on the amount of commitment people have already made to the game through the Creature Creator.
"The content people are making has astounded us," said Vu. "They've challenged us in a way we hadn't conceived...We'll spend two hours on a piece of content we'll ship with the game, and we'll see players spend 20 hours on a piece of content."
That astounds us, too. Why spend twenty hours making an anatomically correct human when you can knock up a cock monster in half an hour?
EA previously said the game would be available on September 7, so we see no reason that we won't be busy conquering the depths of space with a penis shaped species by the middle of September.
