Spore Creature Keeper is a cancelled unreleased Spore game for PC. The game would allow the player to interact with their creatures in a much deeper form, and showed some similarity to the Sims series, more child-friendly. Very little is known about the game as only a small amount of footage was shown in the Spore Evolves video trailer, showing a gorilla-like creature (possibly an Ape Monster) and an Alien Didi exercising.

According to the ESRB rating certificate, it would have also been available on the Nintendo DS and would have allowed you to care for a creature over various stages of its life.

The only known footage of the game was a few seconds of footage from the previously mentioned Spore Evolves video, and a short gameplay clip which has been lost, no more information about the game was released by EA or Maxis. It was later revealed to have been cancelled. The EULA of both PC Retail and PC Digital versions of this game can still be found on EA website.[1]


Players would have been able to choose creatures from the Sporepedia and make them into a pet. They would have been provided with a house & furniture for their creatures, and would have also been allowed to have multiple species in one house. Players would have also likely had the ability to get their creatures to play games, have babies, etc. It would have also gave the option to play online with friends.

The rating description says that there would have been various mini-games including a version of whack-a-mole, where players can jump on creature's heads. It also showed that they could have "play dates" which probably meant multiplayer would have been a possibility.
