Create and care for your own virtual pet on your Nokia device

Espoo, Finland - Nokia now offers a world of virtual pet-care so your pet is never left alone again. Creebies, available through the N-Gage mobile games service, gives each player their own 3D Creebi to care for, entertain, feed and even breed!

Supplied with a trailer and some virtual cash, you can customize your new friend and home with various accessories. Soon, the 3D pet will take on its own personality and appearance based on the attention it receives. With care, the pet will grow and become more independent. However, make sure to keep an eye on its individual health meters, which will let you know when its hungry or feeling ill.

"Nokia Games Publishing has brought a quirky game to N-Gage that appeal to all ages," said Dr Mark Ollila, Director of Technology and Strategy and Head of Games Publishing, Nokia. "With Creebies anyone can have the pleasure of owning a pet without the trouble of cleaning up the mess."

Your Creebi can also interact with other Creebies via Bluetooth technology - for instance, they can play games together or even breed. Players can show off their newborns to others or send them to new homes through the Adoption Center in the N-Gage Arena.

Creebies is expected to be available in early 2008.
