New Creatures game planned; Gameware licenses franchise to Belgian developer Fishing Cactus

A new game based on Creatures is in development. [tip: itachihsu]

The game is to be made by Belgian development studio Fishing Cactus and published by Bigben Interactive (see past games by BigBen and Fishing Cactus).

Fishing Cactus' Bruno Hurbain said they are "determined to create a new great Creatures chapter, both modern and respectful of what made it the best virtual life game in the first place."

The game will be available for PC, Mac and iOS, and potentially free to play for all of them (Mac is uncertain). A "collector gift box full of surprises" is also planned.

Calling All CC Members and Ex-JRCer's - Creatures Community Chat

Hello All,

I hope it's okay to post this here! I am Laura (you might know me from Creatures Caves and the Ask Laura column) and I have some news for those of you who feel a bit nostalgic for JRChat:

Although JRChat is merely a memory now, and though there have been multiple creatures IRC channels in the past that haven't exactly been successful, we're not giving up!

With Spook's help, I have created a channel for the community to use once again, and we both hope that it is a success.

A web applet for CC Chat is being hosted on Spook's blog: 
And also on Creatures Caves:

If you have an IRC client that you prefer to use, you can connect to CC Chat by typing /join #Creatures on the server.

We hope to see you there for a good ol' chinwag, and don't forget to add to your bookmarks and spread the word. :) We've had an overwhelmingly good response so far, one that I never really expected. So please, feel free to drop in and say hello! :D

- Laura
