RELEASE - 6 May 2000
Creatures Playground is a unique PC CD-ROM title created for inquisitive children from the age of four to ten years old. The game once again stars the Norns, a cute collection of virtual life creatures, who are born from eggs and can then be nurtured and taught in a bright and colourful fairground environment.
The CyberLife technology ensures that the Norns think for themselves and learn from experience. Bold, colourful graphics invite play and exploration, helping to build children's skills for unstructured and creative play.
Creatures Playground is a never-ending fairground for children to explore. Like the first in the series, Creatures Adventures, the fun begins in the nestery where you hatch your first baby Norn, give it a name and start exploring. The game offers an huge variety of locations and activities, from a costume design workshop to an alien space station - from a scary swamp to carnival rides with a build-it-yourself rollercoaster.
For those who have already purchased Creatures Adventures, the two games are designed to link together to offer a giant play area for your Norns! You'll even get extra bonus areas when you join the games together, including the Village Square, special bonus rooms and extra activities.
Creatures Playground will be available on PC CD-ROM from Mattel Interactive later this year.
