Creatures Community Reaction
Since its announcement Creatures Family has attracted a wide array of criticism from across the Creatures Community, given Spil Games' background of simple web-based flash games. It has also been recently debated as to whether the game will come out at all, as the series of teaser games planned for Summer 2016 were never released, and no further information was released about the game since Spil Games acquired it in March 2016.
In February 2017, the webmaster of Creatures Caves, Rascii, reached out to Spil Games, inquiring about the game's progress. Spil Games replied that there was no news on the project, but assured him that the project had not been cancelled.
In July 2017, Spil Games released a mini-game, entitled Creatures Alchemist, where players were tasked with combining elements to create new norn breeds. No more mini-games have been released since.
Spil originally announced they were aiming to release Creatures Family in 2017. However, it never came out, and there was no news released. In March 2018, when contacted via Facebook, Spil Games later confirmed that the game's release had been delayed with no confirmation of a release date. As of 2020 the game is still unreleased, leading some to question if it will ever come out at all.
