this is a great game i just wise spiders had maps

This is a nice game. There were some small hiccups. But I like this one. I was hoping I could play more level for this. Keep up the good work mate. Looking forward to play more of your games.

I have me gameplay here:

In my head they are a spider couple. That's the only reason that one spider would deal with all this crap. Likely, to bite the dudes head off by the end. That's my head canon and I deny anyone correcting me. Also, not a bad game! Short, and did not realize I was missing a boss battle like that in my life until now. Well done, Stefano!

very thanks to you! In future it will be a full game! For now it was realized for a gamejam. It's a kind of test... I appreciate player feedback untill now.. so I've decided to do a full project in future about this story! 

here u go

Really enjoyed this experience! Found you because of a forum post on another jam and I am so happy that I did :3
My only real "complaint" is I wish after I die the first time that I'm able to skip cutscenes or it skips it for me but other than that i am in love with this. The platforming felt good and fun, the environment was rly rich and I loved exploring, and it had a great atmosphere. All in all, fun game! Excited to see more from ya. :D 


Cutscenes tutotrial in future will be delete! I realize is the bad thing I've done in the game ahah.. anyway thanks for the feedback!

Really a fascinating world and game. I'd love to see more, explore more, learn more about just what sort of place this is. I get a lot of Dark Souls Tomb of The Giants vibes from the environment.

Thanks for your feed

Loved it! Atmosphere was perfect and the visuals are incredible :)

Thanks for playing and for the feedback

WOW! Great job Stefano! 


That was so cute and awesome! Made you a lil video: 

thanks lil girl :) honored!!

The game was really well done. Even if you weren't scared of spiders. The creepy vibes still made you nervous for what happens next. Also the battle scene was awesome great job and keep up the good work.

Thanks! I really appreciate your feed

I'm happy to play this game great job.

nice atmosphere and graphics. Controls of the spider are also very good.


Simple game with a dark and moody feel. A bit challenging in some areas (especially the jumps), and I wish he could climb walls even if for just a couple of seconds but still, fun to play. Also, the boss spider looked nice!


This game was awesome!! I can't wait to see the full release!!

Would you like to check my games? It would be great help!



Small, cool and little scary. I quite liked it.

I am surprised how well the camera tilted along a world axis. It worked oddly well to focus on the rift, creating a sense of scale.

I am also very impressed how you managed to allow me to play as a spider with a sword haha.

The graphics were great and the audio too. The art-style was very fitting as well.

Great work!

I really enjoyed the atmosphere, it was really creepy!  Also, the way the spider moved - it was really cute to hear the little taps of his paws as he walked ☺️

Overall, I really enjoyed it - definitely felt like the start of a saga or a much bigger project. Good work!


Would you like to check my games too ! It will be big help!

This was really fun if a bit creepy. Works a bit for exposure therapy. By the time I was done playing, the spider didn't creep me out nearly as much.

Really well done around on the atmosphere and game play. I did get a bit lost and spent a bit too long trying to go a way I couldn't but that's probably more a "me getting lost easy" problem.

Would be nice to be able to skip the instructions. I died a bunch of time before the first checkpoint and waiting to move got a bit annoying.

All around very cool game.

Very cool game.

Hehe I have arachnophobia, but I will play this anyways!

While some of the platforming felt very precarious, The Rift was definitely a fun time as a spider. I don't know if it's the small thing/big world aspect or just the way the spider moves, but it's really cool running around as one. Wouldn't mind a longer game like this with more spider sword fights.

Good job, dev.

This may be my favorite game I've ever played from itch.io. I don't say that lightly. 

Bravo! Thanks for sharing this with all of us! 


Hii, I've made a video about the game and wanted to share some feedback about it, hopefully it is useful to you ^^

-The idea is pretty interesting.

-The gameplay mechanics are pretty good, the only one I think that needs some polish is the fighting mechanics at the final boss as the combat feels robotic.

-The visual style is really outstanding and makes the game feel quite unique. It also fits perfectly the theme of the game ^^.

Hopefully this is useful to you :D, also if you could subscribe that would help me a lot :)


Really loved the idea of a spider as the protagonist and the dark but relaxing atmosphere. Nice job!

You have an incredible base for a fantastic game on your hands!  I love the atmosphere and the whole concept of the game itself!  I hope you create a full game out of this.  A lot of potential!

You sir, are you a wizard with your aesthetics! Aside from the many many deaths (which were my fault), this was incredible!!

Nice game and well maded, but the controls are tricky.

Such an awesome game, great job! super impressed! 

Thank you so much for being!

I just live streamed it, played it in VR :)

Still unsettling even as the spider. Very cool game.

Hello! I recently completed a review of your game for my Youtube series “The First 15”! I’ve placed a link to the video down below, please check it out and keep up the great work!

Absolutely hate spiders, but I was able to push through and play the game! It was actually really fun, frustrating a little bit at first cause I kept messing up the jumps, but overall it was a good game! 

You've outdone yourself with this. Excellent work!

This game seems really cool! Sadly I won't be able to play it cause it is a rar file! And my computer won't open rar files! I have a request! Maybe you can make the .exe version of the game for me? So I'll be able to play it! Thank you so much and I hope you have a great day

in the internet are some converters that can convert rar to .zip. Then you only have to unzip it! :)

Ok! Thanks!

7-zip is a nice free utility that can open almost any compressed file.

Gotta say I love the black & white style & honestly with the music it's kinda nice when you get DEEP DOWN!! 

Thank you for creating this fabulous game!

Thank you too for playing

This truly looks amazing! I'd love to try it out. Do you think you'll ever release a version for macos? :)


Scary spider

Probably one of the best games I've ever played- especially as a tarantula hobbyist. 😊🕷🕸

U amazing thanks!

Ahhh this was super fun and awesome! I'd love to see an extended game.


Of course! Between projects I'll do something!

This game was AMAZING!

Thanks bro!
