Capture Creatures takes place in the distant future where humanity has allowed urban sprawl to virtually wipe out all natural elements in the world. The government and a group of scientists have picked an island to begin a reclamation project in order to bring back parts of the natural world into ours. It’s a story about what we’ve lost in the pursuit of technology and convenience. Everything is going well, until mysterious creatures begin appearing within the reclamation zone and these animals have strange and marvelous powers. What the creatures are, where they’ve come from, and what their purpose is will be a mystery that unfolds throughout the story.
