New Map, New Mode

We will be introducing a 2KM squared map featuring different biomes for different play styles. This will be the largest map ever added to Spider Wars and will come with its own game mode.

The game mode is Survival based in which you can team up with friends and claim objectives to receive your loot, or fight it out with other players.

We have been doing internal stress test and plan to do a public stress test once we start to finalize the changes. We also finally managed fix the shields on the Artillery and Assault classes!

Hope you have a great weekend further!

3D Nav Mesh Generator

We have been working on a 3D navigation mesh system that will tie in closely to the fauna and flora.
This system will also lay down the ground works for AI.

The above image shows intersecting mesh while the 3D navigation mesh draws without those intersections.

We hope you have a great weekend,
-CarVin Team.

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 and Team deathmatch are 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.
