What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want the community to help us make new features.
We are 3 developers developing this game and we wanted to make something that is truly different but yet familiar to play.
It has been a long, 4 year, journey to this point but we are proud to finally show you what we have.

WARNING everything is subject to change.
The game contains bugs and glitches that we always try and fix on a weekly basis as well as adding new content monthly.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are aiming to release from early access before the end of 2019.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Now that we are in open Beta Spider Wars will have the older multiplayer style (Team Based combat with set game modes) reintegrated as well as a second playable class. The final single player level will be added with a conclusion to the story. The game will get another layer of polish and optimisation.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have 7 single player levels as well as a tutorial.
We also have multiplayer up and running with 1 huge open play style map. We recently integrated steam inventory services allowing players to get skins from mining crystals in openplay.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we include new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will have in-game polls and meetups to talk to the community directly as well as forums dedicated to the subject :

Please note: The multiplayer has a very low player base. We are currently working on getting multiplayer bots to help get matches going.This will take some time unfortunately. Thank you for your patience.

About This Game

Spider Wars is a fast-paced shooter in which you can either work with your fellow spiderkin, or blow them up for glory. Or sport.

Our spiders can traverse any solid surface at any angle. Want to get an edge by walking on the ceiling, raining death from above? Or how about reenacting nursery rhymes with the closest spout? No problem! Just run up to objects and the spiders will attach themselves, allowing you complete freedom in your ascent.

What game about spiders would be complete without the ability to build webs? We don't know. What we do know however, is that you can build them in this game. String webs strand by strand to construct whatever your heart desires. Your ideal spider fortress is now within reach. Perhaps you are not much of a builder; fret not! Use your web to swing around like a certain costumed human who has been stealing all the glory that rightfully belongs to spiderkind. No radiation involved.

Teamwork and our spiders' complimentary abilities plays a large role in our team-based game modes. *
Those same abilities can be used to great effect in our solo modes as well.

To play host to these epic battles, our spider scientists have selected a variety of interesting locales. I wouldn't expect any sanity in the choices however; our scientists are all out of their minds. I hear the majority of them suffer from arachnophobia. We have noticed an alarming amount of traps and hazards in some of these locations...

  • Multiple game modes: Deathmatch is currently available, with more coming soon.
  • Variable camera modes: You can choose to play in either first- or third person.
  • Spider types: Choose from a selection of unique classes for your spider. Each class not only looks distinct, but plays different as well with class specific loadouts and abilities.
  • Webs: All spiders can construct webs on any solid surface. The webs can be used for traversal or defense. You could even construct an artistic web to prove you are a capable home-builder to that spider-crush of yours. Webs do not have to be static however; you can use them to swing around objects - getting the drop on your foes!

Oh, did I mention this game has spiders?

* Our human-spider relations officer tried their best to not use buzzwords after their predecessor was ejected into space for doing so.
