I dont know it seems realitivly rushed like its trying to get out first
Based on how it said that the video shows "a depiction of a conceptual idea" it's probably more of a visualization. It's less showing tangible gameplay, and more showing that the creator has a decent grasp of things, like creating the graphics and rigging the models to do things.
The opposition are opposition no more. They have been...assimilated. *Shifty eyes*

Some digging doesn't exactly fill me with confidence in its legitimacy. Some of the "screenshots" are simply backgrounds of other games or stock assets with painted shapes on top for animals. The gameplay footage appears to be game scenes with stock assets and simple gameplay features, but absolutely nothing in terms of underlying mechanics more than moving an organism or ship around. Not to mention their "plan" makes Thrive sound like the most thoroughly planned game in history.
Apparently the developer is hoping to start a Kickstarter though, and while I seriously doubt he'd actually be able to make it (and suspect the purpose is somewhat scammy) the prospect of increased publicity for a game in a similar vein worries me. Especially if it's going to be a failure/scam/NMS cash-in. Then people may confuse that with Thrive.
EDIT: And some other things. The two-man development team is half Spanish YouTube games-player, and while there's no reason gaming YouTubers can't make games, I don't know about you but I wouldn't trust the Spanish version of PewDiePie to build Spore 2. The trailer is now unlisted and the like-dislike bar removed, which suggests there was significant backlash or a wish to remove evidence for some reason. From the Steam forums discussions the YouTuber doesn't take very kindly to any sort of criticism.

Made a quick check of it, and slated release date is "Ending 2017." Yeah, fat chance. We've been an actual game for a few years and all we have is an early alpha minigame. Those guys just have no idea...

phantomhunter01: It wasn't really a terrorist attack, right? I thought it was just some crazy guy.

Atrox: Is an attack that causes terror not a terrorist attack?

Immortal_Dragon: A terrorist attack is one that is politically motivated and is intended to have a political outcome or effect on the political climate. At least I think that's what the criteria are.

TheGraveKnight: So I finally beat the Automatron DLC for Fallout 4. Despite the obnoxious farming that I had to do, it was still fun, especially at the end.

TheGraveKnight: I looked up footage of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and funnily enough, it wasn't the design or gameplay that surprised me. It was because they actually did voice acting (minus Link because Miyamoto hates story) for the characters!

mitobox: I had a dream not too long ago involving a trip to a zoo. One of the animals there looked like a gray, bulky Stegosaurus, but the exhibit stated that it wasn't an actual Stego, or a dinosaur for that matter.

mitobox: It just looked that way because plates and tail spikes worked pretty well last time (convergence). I'm pretty sure the exhibit also said the animal was cold-blooded.
