Spore Review – Part 2

To continue where we left off, your humble tribe is transformed into an industrialized urban center, the first city of many to populate the land. Every city needs a town hall to establish their own form of government:

When the live demo of The Stanley Parable was released, it began as a game design test where the player was guided by an omnipresent narrator as he or she tours the inside of a corporate building, being lead into multiple rooms through a 1st person perspective.
