    Gameplay and Plot

    Webbed is set in typical Australian Queensland and follows the story of a female spider who sets out to save her partner when he is kidnapped by a bowerbird. Thus begins her journey around the region in pursuit of her boyfriend. But, as the old saying goes, nothing in life is free, and our female spider must do a lot. One of them is making pacts with some insects to assemble an army to take on the bowerbird.

    Webbed gameplay expertly captures Spiderman’s swinging action; it’s fluid and snappy. This is a physics-based game that showcases almost everything that a spider will perform along the journey. Shooting webs at solid objects like walls, sticks, and trees are important to the gameplay core. This allows the player to be pushed in that direction depending on the angle.

    Blobs for people with Arachnophobia

    The directors also took into account Arachnophobia. They made the game have a mode where the insects are in the form of small blobs. So it won’t be triggering to people who are scared of spiders or other insects. This is a very considerate move and will hopefully get them the appreciation they deserve.
