Artificial Intelligence comes to the PlayStation + GameBoy Advance
23rd November 2001 sees the adorable Creatures™, the original Artificial Intelligence sim management game, available for the first time on PlayStation (£9.99) and GameBoy Advance (£29.99). Published by Swing! Entertainment Media, and developed by ELO Interactive, this marks the very first time the loveable Norns and Creature Labs' patented Cyber-Life™ technology is available on two console platforms.
Roll over Beethoven as Creatures™ makes a triumphant return to the forefront of the interactive video games arena! This fascinating artificial intelligence simulation for all ages is steeped in cutting edge gameplay, challenging activities and unique characters.
Enter Albia, the peaceful and tranquil world of the Norns. This is the universe where the intelligent and inquisitive little Creatures™ survive, learn and evolve amongst other Norns and in their surroundings.
Explore the fascinating Creatures™ environment. The console versions inhabit the same colourful graphical qualities that graced the previous Creatures PC CD games - Creatures 1, 2, 3 and Creatures Adventures. As with the latter, the real fun begins in the nestery where you hatch your first baby Norn, give it a name and start exploring.
Guide your Norns away from the pestering Grendels and dangerous poisonous mushrooms and watch as your artificial life prodigies learn and acknowledge each other and their surroundings.
Utilising state-of-the-art scientific methods, innate properties are passed on from one Norn generation to the next, just like real life. How you choose to nurture and care for your Norns will result in how their characters and personalities will develop. Creatures™ have a mind of their own, but through your guidance, their curiosity, and a good helping of 'parental' care, you will spend hours of fun exploring new worlds as you interact with other like-minded Norns.
