They're also available on eemfoo.org in their original format for those not on the steam release.

I fought with Critter Consortium in order to ensure they were free. Free was not the initial plan.

I don't mean to be rude, but who are those people anyway that they just suddenly show up one day with a modern port of these admittedly somewhat obscure games?
I mean, for GoG that's kinda par for the course, but who is this consortium?

I'm afraid to say that a quick search for them doesn't yield much. They seem to be a new company; the blurb about them that accompanied the press release for Creatures on Steam simply says 'Critter Consortium is a new indie label set up with the aim of bringing old, beloved franchises to Steam - starting with the Creatures series.'

They don't have a website, but they do have accounts on Twitter and Facebook, although the latter requires a FB account to view. The Twitter account is just a series of press releases and updates on the Creatures games, with very little information on the company itself.

Unfortunately, this is the most I can find on this company as someone 'on the outside', as it were.

I wasn't able to find anything on them, either; they don't have any public information on the web, not even anyone listed as working there on LinkedIn.

My assumption was that it's a random game dev or two who simply liked the games, thought they could make enough to be worth it to get them on Steam and fix them up a little, and had the knowledge, background, and money to wrangle their license. (I'm a little surprised that Gameware is still around enough to get the license from, considering how inactive they've been for years. I don't imagine that whatever they get from GOG sales is that much. Then again, keeping the website up with nothing on it probably doesn't cost much, either.) I'm curious if they'll release anything else - maybe some old virtual pet games, to go with the theme?

Critter Consortium was specifically created for these Steam versions. Critter Consortium ?is a single individual.

I suspect that Allekha is pretty close to the reality.

Gameware Europe is still around, if not depressingly inactive.
