Jumping Spider is a 2D platformer that promises to redefine the genre with unique, addictive mechanics. The Kickstarter campaign, recently launched, is raising funds to help bring the game to PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices.
Cid was just an ordinary jumping spider with nothing more ambitious on his mind than catching his next meal, when a fly-related incident landed him in the heart of Araknotek, Inc.'s cybergenetics lab. Now, injected with a mysterious evoserum that increases his intelligence and abilities, he must escape, and the only way out is through the arthropod habits. This maze of artificial environments is teeming with dangerous bugs from around the world, some of them genetically altered or cybernetically enhanced. This is not going to be your typical bug hunt.
Hyperintuitive touch/mouse controls and wild, silk swinging physics provide a unique, addictive experience for the game. A playable demo is available.
You can keep up with Jumping Spider's development on Facebook, Twitter, and the official Jumping Spider website. Creator Eric Newland will also be showcasing Jumping Spider at the Ohio Game Developer Expo on December 7th.
