As I logged into Steam yesterday to download the Dragon Age II demo, a title stuck out among the new release list. The puzzle-platformer CreaVures seems to have popped up out of nowhere, but already I'm itching to play.The game puts players in control of five unique bioluminescent animals as they work independently and together to solve puzzles that seem very reminiscent of games like Trine or The Lost Vikings. Those creatures include a rolling armadillo, a cat whose tail acts as a vine for swinging, a gliding bat, a lightning lungfish, and a quilled porcupine, making for a diverse cast lending to many gameplay possibilities. But perhaps even more appealing than the gameplay are the visuals, set in a hauntingly beautiful glowing forest of night.
CreaVures is currently at a reduced introductory price of $8.99 on Steam, with a jump up to $9.99 in the coming weeks.
