This blog is about Virtual Life Games, mainly the search of the right game. I am excited to hear that Creatures is coming back with Creatures 4 however I think there may be drawbacks. So far My questions are not answered by Fishing Catus which is a red flag. I will go into more detail as I find out more. Since my questions were not answered whatever I can find out will be posted here.
http://blog.fishingcactus.com has not addressed my questions they are hanging out in the moderation que and other questions are being published and are newer than mine. Red flag number one.
UPDATE: They finally let my comments out of que and said they are not censoring them however they did not answer the question (I know weird huh?). They said they will answer questions (and they didn’t say which questions) next week some time. So this is really pointing to the boxed version PC or MAC might not work unless we are online and we do not know what will happen if we buy anything with real money and they disappear what becomes of our purchase?
This subject I will not let go of. All the players that got into an online game and bought their ”gold” now wish they had not. We feel robbed and taken advantage of. Well Creatures 4 is going to have to answer this question sooner or later. I won’t make the same mistake twice! Because I was not the only one to ask it and I refuse to just assume the best of every online company. Not after Slide/Google and their deception.
Plus what if Fishing Cactus (they seem to elude that they are a start-up company) gets big and sells to Google? Are we as players suposed to go through this over and over again?
I just don’t trust the Free to Play/Premium Items for sale with real cash to keep their company going, keep the lights on , or however they decide to phrase it. This is what we heard from Slide over and over and look where we are now with them. It would be a different story if those purchases/items can be enjoyed stand alone with the game as a stand alone or if the company leaves. Oh yes Fishing Cactus, Slide/Google did a number on us.
So I guess I will be the critic till I can be proved wrong. At least I won’t be throwing good money into a black hole. And of course they , Fishing Cactus, did not answer my email.
Here is a better screen shot of the Creatures game! I am not sure about the looks of the creatures, they look ah well “plastic” I would have liked to see more realistic fur and where is their tail? Taking the tail away is cutting off an important part of the look of the Norn!
The colors? Umm the brown is ok, but the blue and pink .. not so much.
Babies? The smaller ones I am guessing are the babies? Now they are not cute at all, wow. The adults look far better than the babies, if that’s what they are.
Also I don’t want to see inside of the egg .. I liked the egg designs and waiting for the egg to hatch to see a CUTE little baby pop out.
I was not to happy with the looks of the C3 Norns, I loved the new Grendals and Ettins though. But the best Norn in my opinion was the C2 Norns they were just adorable! My favorite was the Desert Norns and the Frog Norns from the add-on in the pond down under! For me personally the 3D does not matter if the creature is ugly.
