Gameplay focuses on raising alien creatures known as Norns, teaching them to survive, helping them explore their world, defending them against other species, and breeding them. The gameplay is designed to foster an emotional bond between the player and their creatures. There were six major Creatures releases from Creature Labs.

When you read a book, you are able to explore another world and experience other people's life. The possibilities are limitless as long as you have an imaginative mind. Most people who really love a story try to recreate it in the real world. Famous books were made into movies, which made people who don't read books to appreciate the story. One of the most famous books that turned into a movie is the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Due to its popularity, large companies recreated its settings through theme parks. In some countries, there are also coffee shops or book place with a Harry Potter theme. To make it more enticing to customers, it is complete with costumes with Hogwarts uniforms and matching wands.

One of the best reasons why we collect books is because it is fun! It is a lifetime experience that could help us understand the world. There are countless of books that are already published in the world today, so there is no reason we can experience scarcity. Well, in fact, we already have E-books that allow us to read different kinds of stories on our devices. Having a room full of books at home is satisfying most especially if we have already finished reading all of it!

It makes us imagine different situations that are made by various authors. It opens our minds to other possibilities and other ideas. It could be an investment because reading information contributes to our knowledge that could never be taken away from us. It also makes us improve our writing, reading, and speaking skills. It makes us understand another world. It makes us travel all around the universe. There are also stories from books which are portrayed in movies. However, if we compare the two, there is a significant difference and reading the book is more worth it!

You loved the book. Will you love the movie?

Critics and readers lauded Kaui Hart Hemmings's The Descendants upon its release several years ago.

Its screen adaptation stars George Clooney as a father (and descendant of Hawaiian royalty) who finds out about his wife's affair after she dies in a boating accident.

He must find a way to bridge the distance back to his two daughters and decide whether or not he should sell the land that is his family's island legacy.

The film's DVD / Blu-ray release March 13 gives fans of the book a golden opportunity to study the transition of The Descendants from beloved novel to Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning movie.
