Robot Chicken team creating Spore content

9:40 AM on 05.19.2009 // Nick Chester

If you were wondering WTF http://www.spore.com/wtf was all about, wonder no longer. Electronic Arts has announced that the upcoming Spore expansion, Galactic Adventures, will get free downloadable content designed by the folks behind Robot Chicken.

“We’re bit fans of Spore, so teaming up on Spore Galactic Adventures was a natural fit and so much fun for all the guys at Robot Chicken,” said series co-creator Seth Green.

Unfortunately, every time I think of Green I think of two things: he played a werewolf of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and his “character” is a huge prick on Entourage. But that doesn’t mean I don’t chuckle extensively at Robot Chicken, and the Spore content will probably have the same effect on me. Also, werewolves rule.

The Robot Chicken missions are said to include “exploding poo, angry yetis, rulers yielding librarians and more.” They’ll be available as a free download when the game launches on June 23.

Spore Galactic Adventures Goes to the (Robot) Chickens

Maxis Teams with Adult Swim's Robot Chicken Writers to Create Hysterical Adventures for Spore Galactic Adventures Available at Launch

EMERYVILLE, Calif., May 19, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- What do planetary rest stops, man cannons, and banana monkey wars all have in common? They're all elements of Adventures created by the Robot Chicken writers exclusively for Spore(TM) Galactic Adventures, the highly-anticipatedexpansion pack for the critically acclaimed videogame, Spore. Maxis(TM),an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) studio, today announced that the Adventures created by writers from this outrageously funny, Emmy award-winning TV show will be available as free downloadablecontent when the game launches June 23.

The campaign was conceptualized by Robot Chicken co-creators Seth Green and Matt Senreich and executed by the writing team including Matt Beans, Doug Goldstein, Mike Fasolo, Breckin Meyer, Dan Milano, Tom Root, Kevin Shinick, Hugh Sterbakov and Zeb Wells. With such a unique cast of imaginative characters, players can expect to experience missions with exploding poo, angry yetis, ruler yielding librarians and more! Check out Robot Chicken's exploits as they create Adventures at www.spore.com/wtf.

"We're big fans of Spore, so teaming up on Spore Galactic Adventures was a natural fit and so much fun for all the guys at Robot Chicken," said Seth Green, co-creator of Robot Chicken. Co-creator Matt Senreich continued: "We're all gaming geeks, so when the Spore guys said they had an alluring proposition for us, how could we say no? Instead of creating absurd worlds with toys, this gave us the opportunity to create literally anything we wanted as gamers. Geek moment. We think that RC fans will love the pretty random and absurd adventures we created and we can't wait to goof around with the ones the fans create."

"Gamers and Adult Swim fans alike are going to absolutely love the hilarity found in the Robot Chicken missions created for Spore Galactic Adventures," stated Kip Katsarelis, lead producer of Spore Galactic Adventures. "Our development team had a blast working with the guys and couldn't stop laughing the entire time we were together. Their Adventures truly reflect the extent of their wild imaginations as well as how the in-game Adventure Creator tool can create almost any type of story imaginable. Players can only guess the level of absurdity and fun that are in these Adventures."

Spore Galactic Adventures adds a tremendous amount of variety and fun to the original Spore, allowing players to beam down to planets, play Maxis-created Adventures and create their own customized Adventures. Now players can get out of their spaceship and turn their creatures into legendary space captains, battling epic monsters in intergalactic arenas and fighting intense planet-side races along the way. In each mission, players earn experience to rank up their captain, gain game-changing items and accessories such as a Plasma Pulser and Swarm Magnet. Once the captains and Adventures are created, players can share go online to share with friends around the world at www.spore.com.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!
