Video Game: CreaVures
CreaVures is a 2011 Puzzle Platformer by Muse Games for PC and Mac. You play as five 'CreaVures' (controlling two in tandem), each with a unique ability that helps them to traverse the environment.The story is as follows: Much has changed in recent memory. The forestís swirling light, once plentiful, is now cast so thin you can barely see through the darkness. The symphonic night has gone quiet, save a lone voice: the forest is calling. It needs your help. You know what must be done, how to save your mother forest. Will you? Go gather the others. They are waiting for you. Together you must venture deep into the forest, to bring her back from the brink.Hurry, before the light is lost!
