According to a leaked EULA, you may soon see Will Wright’s (in)famous creature-building game Spore on Steam.

The EULA is here at the moment and strongly suggests that the DRM-hungry beast will soon be downloadable.

Though an immediate hit with gamers, Spore took a hammering from gamers on Amazon and others, almost purely due to its DRM and the basic shortness/un-Darwinian progress.

Don’t expect the game’s infamous security measures to disappear though – Steam has published quite a few SecuROM releases with the DRM still attached. Some other reviewers are expressing surprise at this move, but given that EA is Valve’s publisher for Half-Life and Left 4 Dead, it really was just a matter of time.

We’ll keep you posted on any further developments.
