Spore is made by Will Wright & Maxis, the people behind all of the Sims games. Wright wanted to call the game "Sim Everything."
Basically, it's an...everything...simulator.
The game is divided into phases:
Phase 1: You control a single-celled organism and you must survive in the primordial ooze. You must eat food and avoid getting eaten yourself, while spending DNA points on new adaptations.
Phase 2: You grow legs, crawl up onto land, and continue your fight for survival. You also have to reproduce.
Phase 3: You stop evolving physically, and your creatures form tribes. They become intelligent and develop language, tools, domestication, etc etc.
Phase 4: Your tribe becomes an advanced civilization. You must conquer your planet through either diplomacy or warfare.
Phase 5: You can explore the galaxy with spacecraft, colonize new worlds, and conquer the galaxy.
Throughout the whole game, you make choices such as whether to be herbivorous, omnivorous or carnivorous or whether your creatures are peaceful or warlike. The game's content changes based on how you play. Other creatures/civilizations you encounter are mostly the creations of other people playing the game.
