For anyone that hasn't heard of Spore yet - it's a life simulation game being designed by Will Wright - creator of the now-iconic Sims series. To say this game is everything is well... an understatement of epic proportion.
Think of it this way: Pac Man meets Sim Life meets Sim City meets Command and Conquer meets Star Trek, and you have an idea of the different types of games you'll come across here - all in one incredibly massive game.
As you can see in this Spore Demo video from last year, you can fully customize the look of your creature, even as early as the embryonic stages of life.
All of that aside, Gamespot is reporting that the game will be playable at this year's Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany - August 23rd to the 26th.
