MALIBU, Calif.– Jan. 13, 2009– Abandon Interactive Entertainment today released new screenshots revealing player-created lairs as well as a turn-based battle system in the upcoming online creature building and battling game, Freaky Creatures. Hitting shelves in early 2009, Freaky Creatures combines the best of online multiplayer PC gaming, collectible action figures, virtual worlds and social networking.
In Freaky Creatures, players start with an empty lair they can fill and customize to house their Creature using an assortment of items including pillars, a radio, furniture and plants. Players can then invite their friends’ Creatures to socialize and explore in their own personalized lair. The screenshots reveal the multitude of decor a player can use to enhance and personalize their lair.
In preparing for battle, players can choose from a variety of parts and powers that work in unison with each other to increase their chances of winning battles. The screenshots show how the creatures use their various parts and powers to battle each other for points, experience and Creature Credits. Creature Credits can then be used to buy more parts, powers and objects for the creature’s lair.
The Freaky Creatures experience begins with a starter pack that includes 2 action figures and a 1GB reuseable flash drive. Once players have created their unique creature they can jump straight into battle or build a lair where they can care for their creature and invite friends over to hang out. They can also participate in the Freaky Creatures community, personalize their homepage, play mini-games, join tournaments, check leaderboards, trade items, read animated comics, enter contests, form teams and much more in the ever expanding Freaky Creatures Universe.
Starter packs will be available in early 2009 for $19.99.
