MALIBU, Calif. - August 13, 2009 - Abandon Interactive Entertainment today announced the new Creature Comfort Game, available now in the ever-expanding world of Freaky Creatures. Players will now have more opportunities to actively engage and bond with their Creatures, getting a glimpse into their thoughts while reaping the benefits of successfully providing for them. The Creature Comfort Game is available in Freaky Creatures to both free and premium members. Sign up for Freaky Creatures at http://www.FreakyCreatures.com.
In the new Creature Comfort game, trainers can peek into their Creature's head to see what is on their mind, and then respond based on their Creature's desires. Every few minutes, a thought bubble will appear above their Creature featuring either an item in the lair, or an item available in the lair menu such as food items or toys. Trainers are then in a race to get the requested item before the on screen timer runs out. If the trainer succeeds, the Creature remains happy and the player earns rewards. The rewards are greater as the actions become more complex, and each successful round will yield more Creature Credits. There are three rounds available in the free-to-play version of Freaky Creatures, and Premium Members can play up to six rounds.
A new puzzle mini-game, Freaky Pipes, is the latest addition to the mini-game collection at the Freaky Creatures Web site. Players will need to successfully fill vats with Ichor, the gooey green matter from which Creatures are born, by revealing and arranging sections of pipe. Each full vat creates a new creature part, and each creature needs three parts before it can be sent into service. As players advance, the game becomes more challenging as multiple vats, shorter timers and special tools to alter the flow of the Ichor are introduced.
"We're committed to continually offering new content to keep our thriving community engaged and to attract new users," said Jamie Ottilie, President and COO of Abandon Interactive Entertainment. " The Creature Comfort Game and Freaky Pipes are the latest examples of this commitment. As interactive, fun titles fit for players of all ages, we're thrilled to offer them to the Freaky Creatures community."
Freaky Creatures is now available for purchase at comic, hobby, electronic and toy retailers nationwide. The game is also available at FAO Schwarz in New York City. To try out the game for free, or to purchase your very own Freaky Creatures, please visit http://www.FreakyCreatures.com.
