Who wants to launch pesky gaming software when you can just get the job done in a browser? Electronic Arts understands where you're coming from -- you want to be able to create a Spore creature in the same place that you check your email and download your porn.
Introducing the Spore Creature Creator 2-D, a Flash-based application that features 250 some-odd body parts to design your own unique monster-pet-thing. The program offers the ability to start a creature from scratch, or import from the massive Sporepedia. Once finished, you can embed the little bastard on your Facebook, or terrorize your friends with it by way of email.
As I'm writing this, the Web site -- www.spore2d.com -- is down, so I can't make my own creature. Curses. Yay, www.spore2d.com is up now! Why don't you play around with it a bit and show us what you come up with?
