- Spore (Creature File) by Electronic Arts, Inc.
Spore is a multi-genre massive single-player online metaverse video game developed by Maxis and designed by Will Wright. It allows a player to control 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. The data necessary to animate the creatures is encoded into the bitmap PNG graphic file. The latest theory (Oct 2008) is that the data may be encoded into the color layers of the graphic file (rather like the encoding technique known as steganography). This association is classified as Game. Related links: Wikipedia Spore Page, Spore Creature Encoding Discussion
