Ah what I wouldn't give to be young and entertained by shiny things and holiday themed exspansion packs. Today Maxis
announced a Spore Galactic Adventures
Independence day themed adventure pack featuring an adventure called "How a Bill Becomes Law" and "Kaboom!". The first has you playing as a lobbyist trying to get a bill passed through the galactic legislature and the second is about explosions and picnics. These obviously have a limited appeal because being specifically targeted towards Americans and sound like a drag compared to, I don't know, conquering a whole galaxy with a fleet of space vessels bristling with death bringing super weapons. It is a free download so I guess if you happen to be American and are terribly lonely or bored this weekend it won't hurt to check it out. I will be patiently waiting for the Easter adventures that allow me to paint easter eggs and throw them at little childern whilst dressed as a giant rabbit.
SPORE GALACTIC ADVENTURES CELEBRATES 4TH OF JULY WITH A BANG!
July 2, 2009— Happy 4th of July! To help celebrate our nation’s
birthday, the developers at Maxis have created two holiday-themed
missions from the latest video game, Spore Galactic Adventures. The
adventures, entitled ‘How a Bill Becomes Law’ and ‘Kaboom!,’ are both
available for download today at www.spore.com
. Both missions, created
with the Adventure Creator tool in Spore Galactic Adventures, allows
for infinite creative possibilities!
‘How a Bill Becomes a Law’- The Spoffit species are in trouble and you
need to pass legislation to save them! A fun twist on a civics lesson
and inspired by the 1970s TV show Schoolhouse Rock, you must lobby,
ultimately turning a bill into a law.
‘Kaboom!’- It's time for a Fourth of July celebration! The picnic is
all set up, the fire’s ready for s’mores, but there's a problem with
the fireworks display. Can you help the Independence Day picnic go off
with a BANG?
