Creatures Comeback This Year

Bigben Interactive, Gameware and Fishing Cactus announce plans to revive the Creatures franchise with the release of a fourth installment in the artificial life series later this year, saying: "The approach will be to maintain the characteristics and integrity of the earlier games." The new Creatures will be launched as a free-to-play online game for Windows, OS X, and iOS, and the announcement adds: "A collector gift box full of surprises will also be created." We were able to confirm that the free-to-play game will be microtransaction-based, though "most of the content will be entirely free." The plan for the boxed edition is still TBD, so we'll wait for more details on that. Says Benoît Clerc of Bigben Interactive: "We are very pleased and proud to participate to the rebirth of such a precursor of the videogame’s history, a title which became mythical and has left its mark on many gamers. This new chapter, in Free to Play for PC and iOS, keeps all mechanisms of its distinguished predecessors and will gather new genuine gaming principles which will certainly seduce everyone."

My creature in Black and White always amazed me. I remember getting it to rescue a drowning villager, and feeling so proud, until he ate him. Bad monkey!

RE: "The future's so bright I gotta wear shades!"

Off topic but true story: My company once had a celebration day at a local campground to promote the launch of our new product line. They gave everyone a yellow t-shirt with that with phrase written on the front, and a pair sunglasses. We had to wear them the whole day, while all the big wigs got up on stage and told us how bright our future was.

The NEXT FRIDAY, they laid off half the company.

Creatures was the worst and most disappointing game I ever purchased, with the possible exception of Black & White. I both cases, the much-hyped AI was all hype and no delivery. The stupid creatures wouldn't learn anything I taught them and tended to die prematurely for no obvious reason.

I agree, although Black & White was still fun, mostly because you could use boulders as a bowling ball and your village as the pins.

I seem to remember most of my creatures died when they forgot (how) to eat.

Brain damage from eating all those mushrooms, perhaps?
