Evolve to new heights! The ultimate sci-fi adventure starts here and ends with you. You control an avatar who's decisions shape the future of an entire species on the planet omicron.


background1There are a few open slots for species that have not been filled yet. Submit your idea(s) for a species that could evolve in the seas of omicron and I will take the best ideas and integrate them into the story with their own storyline. All I need is a description and any thoughts pertaining to your creature. There are not many positions open so you are not guaranteed to have your ideas appear into the next update. Contact with a mail, or showcase your idea when you finish for all to see. What I am looking for is plausible, creative, and over the top creatures. So get your creative juices flowing while you play and make that dream creature you always wanted to be, but you knew could never happen.

Player Comments

You can clearly see the enthusiasm the author had for this project in their details. They try to create logical reasons and semi-plausible explanations from what you see (even if they wouldn't pass rigorous questioning based on science we know). The author's love for sci-fi and a basic appreciation for biology are definitely good things for this story.

The game however suffers from a crippling excess of ambition / shortfall of will to finish it. While the idea of going from a creature stage into a tribal stage (and I'm assuming from the background page also later a inter-planetary stage) has a lot of merit, it just wasn't realized. If the author had removed the entirely incomplete on-land phase, the creature generator part of this game (while lacking for a few senses) would be a worthy game in its own right if polished.

Another significant problem is the large number of grammatical and spelling errors, in the realm of the uncomfortable. If it weren't for the respect for sci-fi in those words, this would not be enjoyable reading.

This game is a fun addition to the genre, but had far more potential if the scope would have been narrowed and the content polished

You should have put alot more work into this story before you published it. I liked the concept of being an alien, but I wanted something exciting to happen after I hatched. I didnt won't to wander around, find one object, lay eggs and win the game. There was also several sentence problems and It was pretty linear. I also see that you are working on a sequel to this. I wouldn't recommend that. This was way to short. I would take this down and work on it some more. Make it longer and make each page at least a good paragraph or more. All in all, it was a good idea. Put a little more time and effort into your next story and you could have something good.

I think it needs to be longer, but it's really detailed, keep it up!

I would suggest more technology, like the wheel or other simple machines.
Also, make it so you can encounter other creatures after you get up on land. Maybe add something that’s a predator to The Blind Ones.

add creatures like Grasshopper/jackrabbit/elephant (all of them combined) too the West(Well the grassland/desert thing) also don't be afraid to use a generator for inspiration! I do it all the time, and too the south have a big and small woodland creature, such as a modified chipmunk or a bear also there needs to be bugs like a wasp and I want more things to do with Burs, such as they can sniff out treasure on explorations, or allow further exploration in the west and north(they will offer some protection)and also can you make like a manual like thingy (not in this though) on all the creatures like burs and mites
