It's 1937. The world has been through a devastating depression and sits on the brink of the greatest war humanity has ever known. Meanwhile, on a small chain of islands in the South Pacific a great scientist toils over his discovery: a technology 30-years in the making known only as Sigma Technology. Dr. Erik Chanikov has discovered a method to combine two normal animals you'd find in nature into new creatures that have the strengths of both, and the weaknesses of neither.
You get the idea.. monkeys with wings, lions with gills, my dog in a dress (oops).
Impossible Creatures is a 3D real-time strategy game set in the 1930's that pits the player against an evil madman in a desperate campaign across a chain of remote and diverse islands in the South Pacific. Using Earth's most formidable animals as building blocks, the player creates an army of unique, mutant monsters in a struggle to protect an unsuspecting world.
MS and Relic have combined to produce a fine piece of science fiction gameplay. Currently in beta, though very hard to tell from the final release, Impossible Creatures can now be found on your local IRC Network.
