I’m still not sure how to pronounce this game, but I’m very excited to see one of the Kickstarter projects that I backed finally released on Steam! The game is even 10% off till March 2nd. CreaVures is a puzzle-platformer set in a magical forest. You play as five different “Creavures,” tiny mythical creatures that each have a unique natural ability. Together your Creavures must travel deep into the dying forest, using their abilities alone or in tandem to gather essence and restore the light.

You have until February 19, 2011 to get your entry in and the winner will be chosen at random and win a game of their choosing (up to $60 value)! Please be sure to have the word DCUO in the title so the entry can be found. Below is an example from Nicole and the character she created on the Redemption server, Omni Girl!
