Anything else you want players to know before they play?
Sorry about there being no audio. I didn't have time to make anything of value so imagine the sounds of creepy spiders and the Space Invaders soundtrack.

The spiders joined up to be something somewhat unsettling to watch. Very cool animations. Nice that you implemented the stencils to display spiders that are occluded. It's a bit hard to aim and control where  you end up with a jump to the next cube though. Perhaps allow players to control the camera? 

OH GOD. The movement was so unsettling. I got 10/10. Pretty distrubing yet surreal concept. 

Also I kept hearing this play in my head. Going to need to cleanse my mind of the red spiders. 


Sorry about the upload fail. I uploaded the .EXE instead of the .ZIP last night. Fixed!


"There should be a redspiders_data folder next to the executable




you need to add the data file


Fixed! Sorry about that...

Sweeet playing in about 10 min!

I can't climb up the first pole... Looks neat though!


Use your grabby arms! (Hold on Spacebar when approaching it)

still didn't work for me

got it finally every time I stood right next to the pole not far away to climb! Anyway one thing I do want to mention is I'm doing a review of design on the games in this jam so here's a shameless plug to my channel if you want to be notified of the vid when released: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7Vj46GGL9VMUvd4YTMtjXg
