This site is about computer game called Creatures which I spent a fairly large part of my adolescence playing with the people known as the Creatures Community. The site is no longer updated, but the downloads are still available for anyone who wants them.
What is creatures?
The game is half virtual pets game, half artifical life experiment. It's not like a normal game where there are quests or objectives, instead you get a world called Albia and some creatures called Norns and the rest is up to you. If you've ever wanted to play god, tinker with evolution or have an army of electronic minions, go download the trial version for free.
The Creatures community
The best thing for me about playing Creatures was all the other Creatures players I met. If you like this game and aren't involved with the Creatures Community, you're missing out on half the fun. The Creatures Community isn't as active as it was, but you can meet people who are still playing over at the Gameware forums, on the Creatures Caves community site and on the Creature Wiki
Do you have a creatures site?
If you play creatures and you'd like to use any of the downloads or information on a webpage of your own, feel free. It'd be nice if you credit me for the stuff I've written and made, but if you don't I won't lose any sleep over it.
