My download just finished. Installing now...
k. I made one.
The first dialog you encounter wants you to register, but it won't let you register. It wants you to buy the game first. Hmm. But, no worries; if you close it, you can make a creature dude.
In the creature creator, you can move the spine, move the guy up and down, and add other things. The help menus is really useful for seeing what you can do with this guy. There are a number of menus for you to chose parts from: mouths, eyes & senses, arms & legs, graspers, feet, weapons, and details.
The first menu, mouths, also has heads with mouths attached. you can put these anywhere and they give you a mating call. You also get a biting attack with a mouth. The first ones are all carnivore, but I'm lead to believe that more will be omnivore and herbivore in the game.
The next parts, eyes & senses give you senses which are useful sometimes.
Arms & legs are very useful for your creature. The basic legs give you one speed, but you need them to move, and you can put better feet on the end to give you more speed. Arms are required for graspers, the body parts that pick things up. The first time I tried, I had no arms, and tried to put graspers onto the tail, but it didn't work.
Graspers and feet both go on the ends of limbs. Feet increase your speed, and graspers let you pick things up. Feet also give you things called charge and dance. I'm pretty sure that dance is needed to get a mate or something, and charge has something to do with attacks.
Weapons, I'm guessing, do damage. There are three types so far: charge, spit, and strike. My grasp of the English language leads me to believe that charge weapons are for running attacks, spit attacks are long distance, and strike weapons are close combat.
Now, I'm not sure what details are for. Most of them increase Sneak, Charm, and Health, but the wings increase Jump and Glide. Charm, like Sing and Dance, lets you befriend other creatures. They each are attractive to different types.
After you've built your creature you can take it for a "test drive". Arrow keys or WASD move it around in the circle, and space is to jump. You can adjust the camera by right-clicking and dragging, and zoom in and out with the scroll bar.
