We could only wish we were playing this right now... maybe...
This game was never completed and/or given a public release.
As a result of this, keep in mind that the developers might have used or deleted some of the content featured here, had the game actually reached store shelves.

Creation is a highly ambitious game that was in development for roughly five years. You would have controlled one of the humans who took care of the last vestiges of underwater life in the future. This would be accomplished by maneuvering a submarine through a highly detailed underwater world. However, because the game took so long to develop and Electronic Arts lost interest, this game was not be.

A teaser demo featuring the game in an early state of development can be downloaded here.

To do:
Unused music. Also, more devtext.

Unused Text

A lot of random text relating to the state of an object, as well as when and where in the game that object could be.

Thing State = STATE_INIT
Thing State = STATE_NORMAL
Thing State = STATE_HIT
Thing State = STATE_DYING
Thing State = STATE_DEAD
Thing State = %d
Thing Damage = %d
GameTurn = %ld
MapX = %4.4x
MapY = %4.4x


An FPS display. Some footage seen in the Bullfrog Progress Report shows this.


For network gaming.


Obviously would have been displayed when paused. This doesn't show up in the demo when pressing P.

Creation rough

A build date. A different message shows up after quitting the game, and this is not displayed when starting the game either.

Unused Sound Clips

The game doesn't play any of these voice clips during any portion of the demo.

Hi, Dad. It's me, your prodigal daughter. You probably don't remember, but twenty years ago, you told me to call to let you know I got here safely. Well, now the transceiver link is up, I'm just letting you know.

I guess you'll know more about Project Creation than me now. All those monitor channels you guys set up, it's a good thing that know Earth hasn't forgotten us.

You can forget those cozy descriptions of slow-sleep though. Freezing is freezing bad. You're at room temperature when you're coming around, but the body remembers. It was two days before I could even move my jaw, which is working fine now, as you can hear.

Our ancestors were evil. They spoiled everything. The air, the earth, the oceans.

But Project Creation gives us a chance to put things right.

On the planet Creation, the oceans are alive with plants and fish; whales and dolphins.

They say that you can see through the water.

Anyway, everything they say about accelerated terraforming by robots is true. What they have done. Oh, Dad, it's beautiful! The ocean is alive!

The robots were lucky to complete the zooplankton, crustacean, and copepod programs without a hitch and ahead of time.

I was due to have another year in the cyrovat, but here I am already. Running final checks on the satiation program.

Speaking of which, I better go. Everything's going to be fine.
