Why Creeper World’s decade-long evolution keeps getting harder

“The whole history of the Creeper World series is serendipitous and unintentional,” says its creator, Virgil Wall, in his Texan lilt. “You know how it goes with these things, one thing led to another.” Creeper World is a singular take on the realtime strategy that Wall has spent the past decade making. Former man of the cloth Kieron Gillen once described the original as “the…

Creeper World 4 gloops into the third dimension

The Creeper World series are strategy games unlike any other, and Sin Vega reckons they have the best monster of any game, even if the title is a bit rubbish. Part tower defence, part traditional RTS, part fluid dynamics sim, I've been a fan of Knuckle Cracker's quirky if utilitarian-looking series for years now. The next game in the series - Creeper World 4 -…

Creep Is Death: Creeper World 2

2009 saw Kieron writing about something called Creeper World, a tower defense-RTS type indie game where the player was pitted against a huge, disgusting, doomsday blob known as Creeper that was still hungry despite eating three hundred billion humans in the game's intro sequence. In short, he enjoyed himself. Today, Creeper World 2 has been released! Where do we go from here? Well, you can…

You’re So (“Very”- Ed) Special: Creeper World

Don't be deceived by the screenshot. Creeper World is the most apocalyptic game I've played in ages. Hell, even Defcon's millions pales before the 300 Billion which gets offed in the opening moments of this Tower-Defence-esque indie RTS. The plot explains all: basically, evil goo appears in the far future, killing everyone on humanity's enormous empire. Less than 50,000 are left, who must now make…
