“Here is a shot of the first creature I ever created when I was writing the skin system 2.5 years ago. I called him the Debug Squid.”
- - Chris Hecker
The Debug Squid is said to be the first creature ever created in an early version of Spore, created by designer Chris Hecker on February 6 2004. It resembles a featureless, colorless mass of limbs, vaguely reminiscent of a cephalopod.
No official equivalent of the creature exists in the final version of the game.
