Newmarket, England, 22nd November 2021
 

Gameware Europe and Critter Consortium are proud to announce the upcoming release of the iconic "Creatures" series on Steam.
 

Seeking to model life itself via digital DNA, Creatures is a game all about raising and teaching virtual "Norns" - a friendly species, that with the player's help can learn, communicate, breed, and (hopefully!) survive in a world full of danger.
 

The series has been recognized in a number of awards, such as two EMMA wins for Creatures and Creatures Adventures, as well as a BAFTA nomination for Creatures Playground.
 

With 6 major releases on PC between 1996 and 2001, the series has delighted fans with its unrivalled technology in the field of artificial life by modelling real, scientific principles – “Call it a game if you like, but this is the most impressive example of artificial life I have seen” Richard Dawkins ( Oxford University Zoologist and author)
 

I first saw this program in the same week that evidence was discovered of life on Mars. This is more exciting” Douglas Adams ( Author of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)
 

Creatures Docking Station and Creatures 3 are set to release on December 6th, while the other games will be released later that month as Creatures: The Albian Years (a compilation of Creatures & Creatures 2 with their respective expansions) and Creatures Village (including both Creatures Adventures and Creatures Playground).
