Reluctant hero

P1010336Will Wright is a genius. He's the guy behind the The Sims, and now the ultimate sandbox-type creation game Spore. And while he clearly loves making games, he definitely is not into the fame that comes with it. At least today.

P1010335_1Word has it that Wright participated in a dance-off late last night at the Sony party, so maybe that explains his skulking behavior today. He's been in the Spore demo room, but didn't actually do the demo I saw today. Both times I've seen him today, he's rushed past the crowd, eyes cast downward--obviously actively avoiding fanboys (and girls) standing outside the Spore theater with poised cameras. So here are some shots from the demo instead.
