GDC 2014: Hands-on with Tiger Style’s ‘Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon’

With such hits as Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor and Waking Mars, Tiger Style are easily one of my favorite iOS developers. That’s why it was such a big deal this past October when they revealed a new project through a cryptic teaser site that alluded to something called Blackbird Estate. About a month later, it was then revealed that their new project was actually a sequel to Spider, and Blackbird Estate would be the new location that you’d be exploring as an eight legged creature. Today we got to sit down and get a nice, long demo of Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon, and it looks fantastic.

If you were a fan of the original Spider, then I think Rite of the Shrouded Moon will be right up your alley. It’s familiar enough to the original that it feels like an extension of the world they created, but comes with quite a few new features and secrets to discover, which is something that made the first Spider so special. Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon will be done “when it’s done" but it sounds like we’ll be playing it sometime before the end of the year. I can’t wait.
