A Game About Playing as a Spider Also Has an Excellent Arachnophobia Mode

Warning: This story contains depictions of cartoonish spiders.

Webbed is an exceptionally cute platformer where players control a tiny lil' spider whose partner has been kidnapped by a very mean bird. Even though the main character is made of pixels and meant to make you go "aww," it's still a dang spider and lots of people—at least 3.5 percent of the US population, according to a 1996 study—have a form of spider phobia.

This game looks so cute and the web swinging mechanic looks incredibly satisfying! Surprised there hasn’t been a notable non spiderman spider platfomer before.

Also $10? Will definitely be picking this up for when I clear out a bit more of my backlog.
