Freaky Creatures allows players to build the ultimate, customizable creatures and then battle them against friends.

The initial creatures come with 50 different parts, 20 powers and 4 objects that can be placed into the creature’s lair. The variety of parts and powers will allow players to create more than 3 billion visual combinations and players can battle other creatures via PC to PC or PC to mobile game play.
To support the launch of Freaky Creatures, Alienware, the leading manufacturer of high-performance entertainment and PC gaming systems, is giving gamers an opportunity to win an Alienware Area-51 m15x Notebook computer when they sign up for a chance to participate in the beta program.
