For a couple of years I have been playing Creatures a lot, a very special computer game. The game is about creating norns and helping them to survive and evolve in their own world. This game by Creature Labs is probably still the most complex (and entertaining) simulation of life currently available. Those of you who are already familiar with the game and would like to have a look at my norns and possibly adopt one of them can do so by clicking here. There are also areas dedicated to the (unevitable) sequels 'Creatures 2' and 'Creatures 3'. On these pages, you will also find my own cobs and two new worlds for Creatures 1. You may notice that those pages aren't updated any longer - well, life goes on and every day has only 24 hours, so when I go back to Creatures now, I only play it, I don't make any more objects. You can't do everything and I have moved on to other things lately.
