Creatures Family was supposed to have come out last year. It is now 2018. I think that should tell you everything.
I honestly didn't mind Alchemist, to be truthful, if you looked at it as a standalone game and not an actual Creatures title. It's just a shame Spil are making the same mistakes that Fishing Cactus made with Creatures Online, wherein they go for long periods of time without giving us updates about the game.
@ Malkin I don't really think they care a lot. Maybe they hoped to make some quick money with reviving an old game and that was it. However, it is strange that they put a little bit effort into making a small game at all and then leaving it unsupported anyway.

I've never played Alchemist but isn't it the sort of game that could easily have been built and then had Creatures graphics slapped on it? It's just a Doodle God clone. There's nothing to say they put any effort in it at all as a Creatures game, it could easily have just been something they repurposed into part of the franchise that wasn't originally going to be.
