and other general Creatures horror

Congratulations, you've found my personal hell.

Creatures is a weird little sandbox/aquarium/ant farm/frog dissection/life simulator game
that sprang out of the mid-90s. You may remember "norns", "grendels", "ettins", and the rest
of the cast of Beowulf; you may even remember trying in vain to get one of them to "eat food".
As for me, I'm just here to break the game.

Mostly I screw around with Creatures 3 and Docking Station, dual contenders for the coveted
"worst search engine optimization of any video game name, ever" award.
To their credit they were mostly released when AltaVista was still cutting edge.

I first played the original Creatures when I got it in a dual-pack with Oddballz in 1999
and then never stopped. I was so pumped for ANYTHING I could learn about Creatures 3
on my intermittent internet at the time, and I still am.

Anyway, here's my contribution to the game's modding and experimentation:

Development guides and such

Engine/game dissection & notes

UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED,
MY INFO APPLIES TO CREATURES 3/DOCKING STATION

I actually think Creatures 1 and 2 are the better games,
I'm just tragically afflicted with horrible taste.
(The mid-2000s 3D medical diagram aesthetic of
Creatures 3 utterly enthralls me.)

If you want to try the game yourself, this site is a decent source.
Docking Station is basically a demo for Creatures 3 that doubles as an expansion pack.
Ignore their login patch though, and download mine, because it's better.

IF YOU FIND MY PAGES & DOODADS USEFUL, SAVE THEM.
REDISTRIBUTE THEM. PRINT THEM OUT AND EAT THEM. WHATEVER.
Credit would be nice but I'm not gonna die without it.
