Interacting With The Creatures Of Aquaria
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ambrosia Software's Aquaria progress log was recently updated with a new Bit Blot developer post offering information about the creatures players will encounter in the adventure game. In addition to descriptions of some of the denizens of Aquaria's watery realm the post also details ways players will be able to interact with the creatures.

The seahorse and sea dragon are critters that serve important gameplay purposes. The seahorse acts as a friendly steed, and the dragon, a dangerous predator. One helps, and one hurts. But in order to make Aquaria seem like a natural world, it’s important that we have animals that are just living.

One such animal is the krill. Krill in Aquaria are tiny shrimp that actually die of “old age.” That is, they’ll always go belly up after a certain amount of time. However, before they go, they’ll try to cling to the side of a rock and lay eggs, bringing a new generation of krill into the world. (Hm, I wonder what would happen if they laid an egg on the rock that Naija was dragging around in the previous screen?) Left unchecked, krill can multiply quite quickly, but fortunately, they have a few natural predators. Naija, of course, can also decimate their population in a multitude of different ways.
To read the rest, and check out several colorful screenshots from the game, head over to the site below.
