Following the original Windows release of Creatures Internet Edition and the later conversion of Docking Station for Linux, it was decided that CIE should also released in a playable form for Linux. Linux Creatures Internet Edition used the Linux-ported version of the Docking Station engine, the lc2e, for both the Creatures 3 and Docking Station games. Prior to its release, players could download an installer from the files section of the CreaturesLinux Yahoo group to allow the Linux version of Docking Station to connect with the Windows Creatures 3.
