I was just wondering if anyone remembers a internet game called 'Biosphere' or at least I think it was called that. This is going back some years now.
Basically it was an evolution simulator sort of game, you designed your own 'creature' then set it loose in the wild. You either chose it to be a carnivore or herbivore and selected from a variety of different body types, teeth, etc.
There were also awards for achievements such as longest lived creature, most kills, biggest creature and you could track your designs progress. I vaguely remember getting updates along the lines of 'creatures name' got attacked by 'another persons creature' but escaped. The creatures even bred among each other I think.
Please let me know if anyone else remembers this, and if its still around. I would very much like to play this game again.
