The Creatures will be reborn at Gamescom!

Lesquin, France – August 11, 2011 – Bigben Interactive, Gameware and Fishing Cactus are awaiting a happy event at Gamescom 2011!

15 years after they came into the world, the little Creatures are having their grand come back, unveiling at Gamescom trade fair in Cologne (Germany) from August 17 to 21, 2011. The game will be playable as a World premiere not only for the press but also for the lucky visitors who will attend the exhibition!

Creatures 4 is a life simulation game featuring the most adorable creatures: the Norns. Thanks to its one of a kind Artificial Intelligence, they come with their own fully complete DNA, making them unique and allowing them to evolve, learn, interact and even reproduce! Their physical appearance and behaviors are all influenced by their genetics (but not gene manipulation!) and experience. Nature or nurture, the possibilities in Creatures 4 are absolutely infinite!

Creatures 4 is expected by the end of the year on PC/Mac, along with a Collector’s edition boxed version. The game will also be available on iOS platforms (iPhone, iPod and iPad).
