Nooks and Crannies is a cancelled game from AndNow, the developers team of Ed Annunziata. It was in development for the PC and planned for a Playstation 2 port. In the original press-release for this game we can read that: “Nooks & Crannies is the first real game with artificial life characters; little alien Nooks and Crannies. Imagine virtual cock-fighting with your own alien pets. Feed-em, Kill-em, Evolve-em, then send them on one daunting mission after another. Its Creatures meets Command & Conquer in lush 3D alien worlds, seen through a fully controllable camera. You can even breed them on your Palm Pilot and upload them to your PC. Nooks and Crannies — it’s not just a game, it’s a hobby.
The game is designed to be played many different ways:
1. Single player, mission based or free-form strategic play.
2. Over a LAN with (4-8) players.
3. One-on-one modem play.
4. Internet (Mpath, Kali).
5. Email using the Nooks & Crannies Post Office.
Evolve a unique “tribe” according to game demands and personal strategy. Each retail copy contains the DNA of a unique Nook and Cranny which you use as breeding stock.”
The game vanished when AndNow closed down.
