Jinga Found!

  I knew I had her somewhere!  Shes a Banana Norn. 

I currrently breed C1 norns like her in DS.  They are by far better
looking than C3 norns.  Cyberlife tried to make the Creatures 3 norns
too cutsie-wootsie imo.  Now I have to install C1 and play with her…

About Creatures

*sigh* Creatures…   Cute lil Norns, ugly grendels, pesky
ettins…

    Creatures is the only game of its kind.  IMO, it is
the best, most life-like sim out there.  There are three games in the
series plus a free downloadable stand-alone add-on with gigs of custom,
community created content.  Creatures 1-3 with the Docking Station add-on
for Creatures 3 is a game of artificial life based around digital genetics that
evolve and mutate based on environment and breeding.  The beings that you
raise can be taught any language you choose, they have a mind of their own and,
believe it or not, their own personality.  The adults teach the children
to an extent if left to fend for themselves.  They are born, they live
and, unless they have mutated into immortality, they die.  They cry when
hurt, complain when hungry or bored, giggle when happy.  Aside from being
trapped within a CPU, these lil guys are more alive than imagined.

   I’ve been playing creatures for so long that my earliest
backups are on floppy discs.  The first game, "Creatures" was on
a computer at a technology school that I went to.  Being top of the class,
I had extra time on my hands with all my assignments finished and projects of
my own either finished or frustrating me, I would take breaks with this
game.  Had I not been in that class, I never would have found
creatures.  *gasp* Life without norns!  Sad, sad days!

   My first lil nornie was named Jinga.  Aw, I still remember
her.  She kept asking to eat the lift no matter how many lemons I fetched
for her.  I can’t remember the name of Jinga’s mate, but their son was
named Firetail for his bright red tail.  (Now I want to dig up my old
floppies and find those guys)

   I begged and begged the teacher of that class for the game and
she finally relented and gave it to me.  On my home computer I think I was
limited to three norns before the CPU maxed out.  I grew up and got a
computer of my own, found to my astounded amazement that not only was there a sequel,
but there was a third and even an add-on for the third!   Quick as I
could and as fast as a bunny, I ordered Creatures Internet Edition and played
Docking Station as I waited for it to come in the mail.  My guy slowly
grew accustomed to all the giggles and kiss-popping and stopped complaining
about my all night wolfling runs.  Of course, I had to leave the sound up
so I would hear that they were ok if I woke up during the night.

   I’m sad that I never really played Creatures 2, maybe I will
one day, just for fun.  But right now, I’m consumed by the need to produce
as many color mutations as I can while keeping my ever increasing generation
number high. 

   One day, I hope to post my mutations for no other reason than
to say, "See what I created?"  So here is my creatures’ blog, or
log if you will.

So, maybe I just want to feel important…

So I’m doing fancy junk with fancy blog stuff! The question is, can I keep it up! I guess only time and forgetfulness will answer that one.
