Similarities in Giant Skeletons!

So, I am a huge fan of Spore and I would definitely hope someone makes another game like it in the near future, but when I first saw the giant skeleton in the Lost River, I was so immersed in getting to know the story in Subnautica that I failed to realize that the Lost River giant skeleton looks just like a "Hyper epic" skeleton from Spore!

I'm not saying it's copied from Spore. I'd like to think it was inspired by it, but who really knows. More than likely it's just coincidence. :)

    y'know, you kind of are right about this. there are some big similarities in the bone structure.

    I find it awfully convenient that every large animal in the universe always dies like that :/

    In Spore, the hyper epic skeletons are procedural like the planets themselves, so while the bones may be the same, their positions might be different. Although not tilted.

    Spore is also a video game, just like Subnautica. What is going on here :trollface:


    side note: I wish Spore was more like the preview videos they showed

    Damn Mother Nature, finding a skeletal design that works best and then sticking with it for billions of years across the universe...

    She's soooo single minded.

    Yeah! You'd think, just once, one of these alien dinosaurs would go "You know, I'm dying. But I think I'll adopt a final pose like Jackson's Thriller. That oughta confuse a lot of people."

    I've always kinda figured that Madonna would donate her body to science after expiring.
