Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Docking Station is a freeware Internet-enabled version of the popular game Creatures. You play god in a small ecosystem where you watch funny creatures, Norns, grow and die. They explore their tiny world, mutating and learning as they grow. You can punish, reward, and teach them. What's more, you can have them travel from one world to another if you play online. However, many features of Creatures are not available. For instance, you can't edit genomes. On the plus side, you can load new rooms and creature breeds. We were impressed with the graphics and audio and found the game an enjoyable way to indulge our inner mad scientist.

Developer's Description

Following in the steps of the successful Creatures series of games, Docking Station allows you to raise and nurture loveable little creatures called Norns. Teach them to eat and to speak and then explore the Docking Station environment. Eventually your Norns will want to mate and that's where the fun really starts. You can send and receive Norns online from any other Docking Station players around the world. Docking Station, as with all Creatures games, uses sophisticated modelling of real biological systems to create a title that's as engrossing and entertaining as it is creative and fun.
