It has come to my attention that when one registersonline to play Creatures Docking Station (it’s a freevarient of Creatures 3), one is now offered a standaloneLinux version to download in addition to the MSWindows one!I heard that this Linux version was in testing quite a whileago, but it looks like it quietly got released. Anothercommercial game for linux — cool.
The Linux FAQ also offers a link to a script to allow you toplay Creatures 3 under Linux using the Creatures DS engine(ie. it’s the same engine).
I played Creatures DS a while last night and it’s quite bafflingand fascinating and cute and quite pretty also…
The (unsupported) Creatures 3 installer can be found here;note that you need to join the Creatures Linux Yahoo! groupbefore you can get to the files. As noted above, you can register to download Creatures Docking Stationhere.
