What is SPORE?

Spore is a multi-genre single-player god game developed by Maxis. Covering many genres including action, real-time strategy, and role-playing games (RPG), Spore allows a player to control the development of a species from its beginnings as a microscopic organism, through development as an intelligent and social creature, to interstellar exploration as a spacefaring culture. It has drawn wide attention for its massive scope, and its use of open-ended gameplay and procedural generation. Throughout each stage, players are able to use various creators to produce content for their games. These can then be uploaded to the online Sporepedia and downloaded by other players.


The most used version is 1.00.0000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

The main program executable is sporeapp.exe. The software installer includes 239 files and is usually about 28.18 MB (29,545,962 bytes).
