  New interview 3 September  
  Seed Magazine had a very long interview with Will Wright. They start out with Spore but soon they wonder off to many other subjects. Below a part:

"Basically replace the magic with science, because I think science is every bit as magic as any magic. I never really like fantasy books for that reason. I was never a big Tolkien fan. I always felt that magic kind of removed the drama from a story because magic could do anything; there were no limitations."

But now the Sims news has slowed down a bit, I will start updating again. To prevent 1 huge update, I will just update this site every day with one newspost.

  Interview 2 May  
  The Guardian had an interview with Will Wright where they talk about Spore but also a bit about his past:

"My focus started shifting more and more to players, and what they were doing," he says, "Because I found that fundamentally as interesting, or more interesting, than the actual games [was] parallel play. Sitting and looking at what someone else has done with the same game as you is fundamentally interesting to me."
