"The one becomes the many: The first multi-cellular organism emerges." ― Unlocking Sponge in the gampelay
Sponges are the fifth generator and the first generator that lives in the ocean. Sponges are the first animals, containing any species belonging in the phylum Porifera, and the only extant phylum in its subkingdom Parazoa.
Profile Description Edit
The world's first multi-cellular organism, these stationary filter feeders are a product of multiple eukaryotic cells coming together.
The Sponge resembles three pink tube sponges, very likely demosponges. These sponges could possibly represent the stovepipe sponge, the giant barrel sponge, or possibly other pink species of sponges.

- In the game, Coral is an upgrade for sponges, however, in real life, they are classified as cnidarians rather than sponges, relatives of the Jellyfish.
