Spider and friends






Ever since I played Edmunds Tri-Achnid I wanted to make a game about a spider.
I don't know how it will play yet. I'm hoping that will come as I go.

My goal is to release this game so I'll try not to work on it forever
but I've worked on it on and off for a month now and I've come pretty far.

Stay tune fellow tigers!

Are all those webs just static art and part of a mockup? Or are these in-game shots and you have amazing physics?  Shocked

It is too good to be true.

That's exactly what I was thinking too  Cry

EDIT: If the end product has webs like that and they are affected by physics (can bend, snap, etc), I'd be happy to pay for it.

That is not a mockup. The game is in flash so the amount of web on the screen is very limited. On my computer I can have about as much web as in the screenshot before it start's lagging.

YES.

Do you think you could do a tutorial or explain how you accomplished that? Super impressive.

Just curious, what physics engine did you use for the rope?  Because it's gorgeous.

Haha, nice.

I don't know of any physics engines that does ropes naturally and since I'm not a programmer I've done the simplest solution I could think of; a series of small joints in box2d.

The creation of the rope/web was easy once I got my head around as3 but I'm having large problems with the deletion of web. It's terribly slow. Maybe box2d has not been optimized for rapid removal of bodies and joints but I'm hoping it's me who's a bad coder. If anyone has insight or experience on this, please share it.

Thanks for the support everyone! Beer!

Interesting, I have never worked with box 2D, but that is super impressive. Would you be comfortable messaging me with a code snippet or something? I haven't seen what type of code goes into something like (but you say it's fairly simple).

I think the web should be a bit less weighty.... I mean, think of the way an actual cobweb moves in the air. Mess with it, I say!  Smiley


Still looks awesome though. I'm in love with the concept of this game already.

I've added more structure to how the engine handles webs so now I can delete webs without a 2 second freeze!
I'm currently working on keeping old deleted webs as images so you get the aesthetics of a whole level filled with web but with little impact on performance. I'm not sure this will work but I think it will.

I also added fireflies. They only took about 4 min but they really gave life to the cave. (Not that it shows in this screenshot.)
