Posted by ballightning on October 16, 2008

Last night, Spore was recognized for its achievement in design, creativity and engineering with a “Breakthrough Award” from POPULAR MECHANICS. Spore  is being honored for its revolutionary procedural animation system, joining the ranks of such ground-breaking innovations such as affordable cancer detection tests, renewable diesel fuel and a transparent-wall camera.

“The Maxis team is honored to be recognized for Spore’s procedural animation system by Popular Mechanics,” said Lucy Bradshaw, general manager, Maxis Studio. “We’re in great company with the other recipients of the Breakthrough Award. Procedural animation helps to bring Spore players’ creations to life through intuitive, realistic movement and we look forward to continuing to push the limits of this system in future Spore projects.”
