Oooh, one away from 50! The suspense is killing me…I hope it lasts!

In honor of the Spore Creature Creator (which I am still swooning over…when I can pry my children away from it) I present a much earlier game that also featured custom creature creation. Unfortunately, this game wasn’t well-received, at least partially because it was difficult to play – not only did it require your typical RTS base-building and unit herding, but you also had to build your creatures to successfully counter your enemy.

Name and developer, please! If you are correct, I’ll spare you when my army of genetically-enhanced super-mutants swarms the entire world!
