Creatures, the Game
The original Creatures game was set in Albia and featured Norns, Grendels and much in the way of cheese and carrots. The game was limited by the technology of the time, being restricted to a 256-colour palette, bamboo architecture and occasional background sounds rather than the music which evolved in latter titles. The development title for Creatures was "Small Furry Creatures" - the game also became known as 'Creatures 1', or more commonly, simply 'C1' after Creatures 2 was (eventually) released.
