Atari creator honored to be played by DiCaprio

50°
327w ago - Original Atari founder Nolan Bushnell says he's "thrilled" to be played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the film about his life.

The news of DiCaprio's signing came earlier this week|, when it was revealed that Paramount Pictures had picked up the project.

"I'm very, very thrilled and honored that would be the case," Bushnell told MTV Multiplayer.

"There's been a lot of books [about Atari]," he said. "Some correct, some incorrect. I've kind of gotten used to being portrayed by others. I kind of thought that this [a movie] might happen. I kind of thought that it wouldn't happen until maybe after I was in the ground for a little while."

The movie is currently without a director, but it will be written by Brian Hecker and Craig Sherman. "I felt that these guy got it in a very, very real way and [knew] what Atari stood for," said the Atari man.

"To me, one of the things that happened with Atari was that it was really almost against all odds," he said. "Nobody thought that video games represented a business. That's the part that I think a lot of people don't understand; if you really work it, you can turn your dream into a reality."
 

Microsoft Delivers Free Game Creator: PopFly

50°
332w ago - Last week, Microsoft announced the release of PopFly, a simple program that allows users to create games without the need to know any code.

Taking a number of genres as a foundation, PopFly offers a range of templates based on classic arcade games, upon which you can import your own characters, backgrounds, etc.

Once done, the games can then be hosted, on stuff like Web sites, blogs, Facebook pages or even your Vista sidebar. It' Silverlight-only, which is a slight hassle, and is fairly basic, but hey, who said everything on this world had to be perfect?

335w ago - The Internet was abuzz yesterday when it was discovered the Spore Creature Creator will be included with The SimCity Box, an upcoming compilation of SimCity games that's due out in June. The Creature Creator will let you get a head start on creating your unique alien species for Spore, which is the next game from Will Wright, creator of The Sims and SimCity.

Spore has been hotly-awaited for years now, but its release is finally going to happen later this year. To find out more about the Creature Creator, we caught up with Patrick Buechner, Vice President of Marketing at Maxis.

IGN: So can you confirm the Spore Creature Creator will be in the SimCity Box when it ships in June?

Patrick Buechner: A trial version of the Spore Creature creator will be available for free through a variety of sources including as a download from Spore.com and in The SimCity Box. There will also be a version of the Creature Creator available at retail. The free Creature Creator has about 25-percent of the creature making parts from Spore. The retail version will have 100-percent. It's up to the players to choose which version they want, but they'll all be available at approximately the same time.

IGN: What's going to be in the Creature Creator? Just the creature creation portion and the "test drive"?...
