The game I have chosen is Creatures 2.
Creatures 2 is an artificial life simulation game, made in 1998, for the PC System by Creature Labs. The Creature Labs company was forced to shut down in March 2003. Creature Labs originally an independent developer, is now part of the development division and brand label for Gameware Development.
There are several creatures games: (Creatures, Creatures 2, Creatures 3, Creatures Village and Creatures Playground all for the PC system. There are also console versions for the GameBoyAdvance and playstation.) It was intended that Creatures would be made for the PS2, Xbox and GameCube, as project Loci, but was cancelled because of lack of funds.
I chose this game because I like the artwork and Gameplay of the game.
The aim of the game is to explore the world of Albia with your creatures which you can name and breed. You guide the creatures through the world; if you don’t watch over them, they can get diseases or drown. I like the detailed environment and the noises the creatures make. The background music changes depending on what is happening in the game (e.g. a creature is dying /an egg hatched)
Creatures 2 Albia is what is left of the world after a volcano erupted so the environment is different from that of the first creatures game. The beings that created the creatures are called the “Shee”, they abandoned the world in search of a new one, leaving creatures’ eggs behind, along with Ettins and Grendals (they are non-playable characters unless your creatures collect a special item.)
