Myriavora is a third-person action shooter that expects you to fight huge swarms of spiders. Unleash a storm of fire and ice on these furious predators, dodging their frantic attacks with agile moves.

A million years in the future. Evolutionary pressure has turned spiders into a far superior species. Humans are now close to extinction. The last survivors rely on remains of powerful technology they didn't invent and barely understand. You traverse this lonely, hostile world in search for a safe home.

Key features

  • Vicious enemy swarm AI
  • Shoot to shoot faster: each shot temporarily boosts your rate of fire
  • Agility based combat: run, slide, jump, dash, and glide to prevail
  • Powerful skills and semiautomatic defense units that allow for deep strategies
  • Customizable clothing
  • Input method: mouse & keyboard (rebindable)
  • Supported languages: English, German

Potential issues

  • Realistically animated spiders: If you're arachnophobic, skip this game.
  • Violence: Spiders die graphically. No visual injuries to human characters.
  • Nudity: You can undress your character. Anatomic accuracy can be adjusted for streaming. No sexual content.
  • No intentional jump scares
  • Gameplay not dependent on color vision

Hi everybody! Or rather: the few of you who actually read this... :)

I'm currently reworking some core features, so now would be an excellent time to let me know what you like the most about Myriavora, so I don't accidentally remove a beloved thing.

To be more specific (and avert the impression I'm just fishing for compliments), I'm trying to add roguelike mechanics. For Myriavora, this will mostly boil down to two features:

1) Health persists between battles and is even harder to replenish than before.

2) When you die you lose all progress except for your clothing and inventory.

On top of that I'm trying to add some strategic depth by expanding the skill system. Each skill gets multiple variants, which differ not only by strength but also by how you obtain them.

I know this all sounds rather vague, but I'm in the middle of implementing and balancing all this, I'm not yet sure what the end result will look like exactly.

I'd highly appreciate any thoughts, suggestions and comments on this, it might help shape the game!

seems cool idea,

and about Health persists.... do you mean the health regenerations gets lower in each waves or battles one by one?

By "health persists" I mean that you enter a new battle with the exact amount of health that you left the previous one with. Your health never fully resets until you die, but there'll occasionally be special rewards that restore a little portion of it. Think of games like Spelunky or Rogue Legacy, it's basically the same mechanic.

Interesting idea, I hadn't thought about it like that. So, basically, it would be casual vs hardcore mode? Sounds plausible, I'll definitely consider that.

Yep, I'm still working on it. Sorry that it takes so long, I've been really struggling with the gameplay loops. The good news is I think I recently managed to finally get it right. I hope to release a new demo in a couple of weeks. I'll try to set up a steam page around the same time, so people can wishlist the game. Another couple of weeks later I should have enough content and (hopefully) feedback that the project can enter early access, which I expect to last a year or two.

Yeah, I know, this is all taking way too much time. I guess I underestimated the scope of the project. However, I really love what I've achieved so far. The game turned out way better than I ever imagined. So, don't worry, I'll keep going no matter what.

In any case, thank you very much for showing interest! You have no idea how much that means to me.

This needs more views and subs !

I’m kinda liking this so far [especially when it comes with toggle nudity elements where u can undress undergarment ( like how Conan exiles game has ) :) ] Have you thought of releasing this on steam?

Haha, I agree with the views & subs!

In fact, I didn't get enough feedback to feel comfortable with putting it in the limelight of big stores already. I'm thinking about putting it on small stores (like Itch.io) first, so if there's something horribly wrong, it affects only a few people and (hopefully) doesn't ruin the whole project.

But yes, I do intend to release it on Steam eventually.
