Evolve, For God's sake!
posted:
I've been very curious to know who was responsible for these amazing Spore ads I found in Harvard Square red line T stop, mostly because of the illustrations (of course) but design and copy are also very clever. So I googled the campaign and found out that Spore is a game about "the evolution of a species from its beginnings as a unicellular organism, through development as an intelligent and social creature, to interstellar exploration as a spacefaring culture"* (*Taken from Wikipedia). That sounded cool and it made me very happy: A smart game among a sea of bloody war games.
What made me really sad is that I also found out that the game has instigated anti-Spore blogs and sparked controversy among bible creatures because (and I shouldn't be so surprised) it goes against creationism! Such stupidity got my interest away from the ad campaign and got me thinking about the issues of double morality and distorted values instead. sniff!  No, wait! Screw that! I'm going to end this post with some color and humor: Here's some more pics from the campaign taken by a different being.
