The term "Creature" was created during the filming of a machinima series Robot Donkey Chronicles in Call Of Duty 4. In between filming, PhsycoSoldier, started crawling on the ground and pressing Y (the Xbox control for switching weapon) really fast which makes your body look very strange. Then Stg. Bisking called him a creature and the name stuck from there.
According to Ze, the term originated as a gentle insult used to poke at the others but came into regular use after they began making Creature Talk. He also says that there was no official start to the Creatures nor were there original members.
- "I met Kootra in early 2009 and introduced him to Sp00n. Later in the year, we met Gassy (can't remember how). Then I think Sp00n introduced Nova to us. Sp00n met Dan through a video mix-up situation with Machinima.com (a pretty good mistake!) and introduced him as well. We met Seamus then Sly as guests on Creature Talk after we spammed their channels." - Ze's Formspring

The Creature House is, as the name suggests, a house in Littleton, Colorado just outside of Denver where some of the Creatures, Seamus, Nova, and Danz with regular visits from Kootra and Gassy. Gassy previously lived in the house for a few months before moving in with Renee. It is where they continue to make their regular gameplay videos as well as live action Creature Talks, vlogs, cinematic shorts and videos of team games. When the lease ran out, the Creatures moved into a second house.
There was now a new Creature House, as the past one's lease was ending. The only person living in it was Nova. Since Seamus lives with Ash, Dan lives with Liz, Sly and Aleks live together, and of course Jordan lived with Monica. A running gag in this house was a house tour, that was supposed to happen, but didn't, because they did not want to reveal their location so they dont get DDOS'ed. However their lease was running up, and as a group they decided that due to them living in seperate apartments/houses (except Nova), that they would get an office. This decision basically evicted Nova and forced him to get his own house with a currently unannounced roommate. He hinted on Creature Talk that it was Aleks, and has since not offically revealed his situation.
Despite saying that he wouldn't, Sp00n and his girlfriend Ali, moved to Colorado in 2013. Sly had confirmed that he had made arrangements to move to Colorado with Immortal in early 2013. He arrived in Januaruy. Ze has thoughts about moving, but he is currently in college until 2015/2016. Danz's girlfriend, Liz, moved into the House temporarily in April 2013, as the two of them moved into a nearby apartment shortly thereafter.
For more info see: The Creature Office
As said above, the group decided to get an office. Here, they are able to work in a more open and professional area. Each Creature, except Sp00n and Ze, have their own individual office. The office also includes a break room, kitchen, green-screen room, prop room, server room, conference room and streaming room, all shown in the first Office Tour.
