I’ve been quite interested in this game for a while now, and having played with the creature editor, it’s interesting how little has changed since some early demos.GDC 2005 (35m)

I’ve avoided looking at anything more recent, as I’m quite looking forward to discovering this game when it’s released in a few weeks. If it was just an RTS where you can design your own units, it would be interesting enough – and this still seems like the meat of the game to me, but it does promise quite a bit more.
I’ve recently been playing Sins of a Solar Empire and while conquering solar systems is always fun, doing so with my own creatures I’ve designed since they were only cells and dealing with recalcitrant species with Death Star-like powers is pretty much everything a supreme galactic overlord could ask for.
