I think I'm on the "It's a tie" side in this case.

The goal condition has two parts:
(a) have at least 10 cards in hand
(b) have more cards in hand than any other player

Neither player met the goal condition.

On the other hand, for a goal that allows a shared win, where in the event of a tie _both_ players win, the Creeper prevents one win, leaving the other player as the sole victor.

There is an interesting rules question at boardgamegeek.com.  The
question is: what if there is a tie for the winning condition, but one
of the tying players has win-preventing Creepers?  Does that negate
the tie -- leaving only one clear winner -- or not?
