Description

This is a demo for my little spider game where you control a procedurally animated spider that can do everything a spider can, plus a little bit more.

I will continue to work on this little prototype/demo and add more features and mechanics over time.

The final game will be a cute, cozy and wholesome 3D puzzle platformer with a little spider as the main character.  There will be no combat in this game. I want people to have a fun adventure with a cute little spider, because why not. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Features in v0.2

In the current version the following features are available:

  • Tutorial levels (Please start with this level)
  • Playground and Parcel Mania levels
  • Climbing
  • Jumping
  • Spider customization
  • Emotes
  • Web swinging
  • Web building
  • Baby spiders

Goal

Your goal in the current version is to finish the tutorial to learn all the mechanics and then just explore the other levels and have as much fun as possible. ๐Ÿ˜

If you are interested, leave a comment with feedback. I'm looking forward to any bugs you find (there are always bugs) and of course ideas that would make the game more fun in the future. You can leave a comment below or contact me on Twitter @FireTotemGames.

No Gamepad support yet.

You mean like this?

I Think you will also like my other tweets. All the features that you see there will be in the next version of the game.

I'm speechless, that's all I have to say. Oh and also thanks a whole lot for making my favorite game ever.

Wow, the game right now is a really impressive start/prototype.  It controls surprisingly well and easy, and feels good to play. Played around for quite a while and it is fun as it is, and with web-swinging and the other stuff you're planning on, this will become an awesome game :D

The IK is also really well done, it feels like a spider, at least to me, not that I know how a spider moves. The googly eyes add to it as well :)

Good luck with this project, it has a lot of potential!

Wow, thank you very much for the kind words. I'm really glad you liked the game and already had such fun with the current state that to be honest is only a sliver of what I have planned for the final game ๐Ÿ˜‰

(+1)

I really enjoyed it and can't wait to see where this game goes from here! Love the cartoony style and the googly-eyed spider!

(+1)

Never thought being a spider would be this much fun!

(+1)

If that was fun already, the next version will blow your mind ๐Ÿ˜Ž

one thing that would make this even better, the ability to make webs you can crawl on. I just love spider games that you can make webs in tbh.  but other than that, I love this game,

(+1)

Yes, that's the next feature to be implemented ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Can you link me some spider games. I would like to see what else is out there. Collecting some inspiration.

Here are some spider games I have found:

https://sbug.itch.io/laser-spider-playground

https://blueappaloosa.itch.io/spider-box

https://nathanpowlesslynes.itch.io/broken-skies

hope this helps!

I tried all of them now.

I already knew Webbed (first game) and I'm following it's progress on Twitter. Really cool game. I'm planning to have a similar mechanic for my spider string and web mechanics, but it's a little bit more complicated in 3D. However, my gameplay will be more cozy and wholesome. No lasers. Sorry ๐Ÿ˜…

The second game looked interested from the description, but the controls are a little weird and the game is very slow. Very similar to mine tho from the idea, but again no catching insects in my game.

The last one was also interesting and it was created during the same game jam when I created this game with some people that are really close friends now https://kruemelkatze.itch.io/bee-a-hero. However, the controls of the game are not great.

i like the girl spirder

girl spider so hot

omg the heart emote has to be my favorite. 10/10

(+1)

Yeah, it's also my favorite emote right now and also the one that took the longest to animate. But, I have some other cool emotes on my list that I will implement soon.

(+3)

This is great! The movements and the way the legs work are amazing. And I know how long and hard you've been working on it. No complaints at all. However, one day, I would like to hide above, in a door way and jump on a giant human passer by, but just to say hello and not to be scared of me XD

Thank you very much for the kind words. Yes, I'm working really hard to get this little fella walking and jumping that smooth and I'm happy to finally been able to let others play my game, athouth it's in a very early state from what I imagine it to be.
Not sure if I can make your dream come true, because I'm rather planning a nature setup for the game, maybe with some caves/ruins, but we will see where the journey leads for my little spider.
