It was a cool, short experience. I'm looking forward to checking out all your other games.

This was fun. The game mechanics were simple but enraging when you realize you have to go somewhere you don't want to haha like into a room filled with a bunch of giant spiders.

Great little game that plays with your arachnophobia, if you got one. And if you don't, you might find those big spiders cute and will want to pet them.

im gonna play this cant wait to see the little friends spiders are so cute ill definitely be petting all of them

i hate spiders

I loved this little horror game! It was one of the games included in the Unsorted Horror compilation, and it was pretty great. I only wish the concept might have been longer or expanded upon! This game starts at 21:33 in this video.

A very atmospheric horror experience that is guaranteed to trigger panic in the heart of any Arachnophobe!

good game


been playing through your games recently cant wait for more games from you

Game 2

The spooders made me jump so much!


That was probably one of the most effective ending jumpscares I've seen in a while, another short but really cool experience. I was surprised how quickly the crane broke, must admit I expected to have to draw the sample a few more times before going into the room but when I did it was very effective (did not do my arachnophobia any good). 


balls lol :)


Comrade! Do you copy?

I really enjoyed this short game, I liked the simplicity of it

Skip to 15:50 for gameplay.

(1 edit)

Only complaint is that I wish it was longer, otherwise very creepy and well done. Good voice acting for this one. Very unsettling, as soon as the spiders skittered out of their nest I knew the player character was probably screwed lol. Definitely skip this one if you're afraid of spiders.

Great game! Horrible for someone with arachnophobia lol but then again, playing a horror game around the fears you have makes it that much more terrifying! Would love to see this worked on further as it does feel like this has a larger story.

Also, well done voice acting! I genuinely didn't expect this to have voice acting so that was a nice touch. I did get a bit confused on the controls for the crane but I think that was me being dumb as after I realized what to do, it clicked as to how intuitive the controls actually are. This had some great scares and had me freaking out. I

f anyone who has already played this would like to check out my experience with this game, it starts at 18:42 in the video.
Overall, great game!

Nice Game..! gak nyangka tiba-tiba ada muncul bola gitu, kirain bakal kena serang pas turun kebawah. Taunya pas sudah masuk balik ke ruangan kontrol.

Good Game

first game that made me almost throw my headphones across the room in fear, or at the monitor. spoiler alert                                                                                                                                                                 so scary i had to close my eyes when walking back to the crane operating place.                                     spoiler over.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  7/10 game dont play if you have arachnophobia 

Pretty fun! I quite liked the voice acting and the spooky atmosphere the game had. I am unfortunately not afraid of spiders though, so the spooks didn't get me hahaha. But still, I can bet this would quite scary for anyone with fear of spiders, so good job! Your game is the first one played on my video.

I enjoyed playing this game a lot a few months ago and whole heartedly recommend a play through to anyone, just be wary of the spiders.

Hey friends! Hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed the game! 

Short but decent experience for a ~5min game, I'm really enjoying this Unsorted Horror series. Well done COMRADE!!!

I hate spiders
