spider rite of the shrouded moon preview
Spiders are considered to be one of the biggest fears facing humans today. They are one of the earliest fears children have, and thanks to the internet, we get to see them in all their terrifying glory. From bird-eating tarantulas, the size of small puppies, to black widows spider that can potentially kill a person, Spiders are truly fearsome. However, they are also incredibly well-made killing machines, designed to maintain balance in the animal kingdom. In Spider: Rite of The Shrouded Moon, players play as one of these clever arachnids, and have fun doing so.
As a Spider, players will bounce around levels, weaving webs to track unsuspecting prey. This prey includes houseflies, moths, butterflies, and even bees, among many other insects. In weaving webs, the insects get trapped, and our player can eat them, earning points and a multiplier.
While eating insects is part of the focus, another part of the experience is the story. The game takes place in a long-abandoned mansion, filled with clues as to the history of the estate. Players will uncover clues and piece together the story.
One nice element to the game is the weather pattern. Of course, insects are diurnal and nocturnal as well. Some animals are more active during the day then at night. Others feast during the night time and slumber during the day. Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon uses a dynamic weather system, which changes the levels of the game, as well as the particular insects that arise.
The game encourages revisiting these levels during different weather conditions. This system is powered by tracking the IP address of your internet-connect platform of choice. The game tracks the weather conditions for your hometown and shapes that into the game. If players wish to opt out, they can do so, and the game will resort to its own system.
Spider: Rite Of The Shrouded Moon is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox 1, and Steam.
