Nest

by derzan - Jam Entry

You are a humble spider-monster-thing laying eggs, spinning webs, relaxing in pools of acid. You know, just living the life.

But one day, new holes opened in the walls of your Nest! Silly little creatures with big sticks came running at you, trying to smash you and your eggs!

There's only one appropriate response. Melt the silly humans with your acid spray, save as many eggs as you can, and use their sweet juices to make more eggs!
Reach 10,000 score to defeat the enemies!

Enemies put a lot of pressure on you, and the acid breath is so short. Good challenge!

Art is great, especially the player character.

Graphics are awesome! The monster reminds me of Capsized. Like the atmosphere while playing. Avast gave me a lot of trouble though when booted the game so that sucks a bit.

Beautiful art, the main character is nimble and well animated! Looks like we both made games about slimy things defending their eggs, ha!

You've got a nice action core here. A little more feedback when I get hit would be nice.

Very challenging, but fun! I love games where you get to play as the monster! I had the same idea in that sense, although very different gameplay. The artwork is great, and the audio did an effective job at setting the mood and indicating the actions taking place. I liked the fact that the monster still switched its direction from moving your mouse after dying, very amusing even if unintentional.

Good job, I like the graphics and the idea, its really hard though, I did not survive longer than 20 seconds ;) I think it would be really cool if you had more possibilities than just the acid spray to defend the eggs (for example spider webs you can place or something)

Thanks for the kind comments!
I'm the artist and I can't tell you how awesome it is to find other people enjoying my art.

I would have loved to do a secondary web attack to help slow them down but we ran out of time. Maybe next time, since we're 100x better at this than we were when we started.
