Flow - A peak at Spore?

Spore is due out this year, so I've been maintaining sanity by playing Flow. In Flow you start off as a small critter, and grow and evolve by eating other larger creatures. Visually, it is beautiful and simplistic with nice music and sound effects that provide the perfect atmosphere. It has a birds-eye view and you can see the creatures that are in the water below you as part of a hazy background. As you dive deeper, it gets darker, which is used by certain creatures as camoflauge.

The game isn't quite finished yet, but the developer is taking input and seems very eager to keep up the excellent work. You will easily waste an hour playing this game. Needs Flash 8.

Also, for those who haven't had the pleasure of drooling over the 30 min. gameplay walkthrough that Will Wright gives for spore, you are an idiot and should immediately view the video below.
