In Tri-achnid you play as an endangered species of exopod on the verge of extinction, in search of a safe heaven for his young the tri-achnid must fight his way out of the lithic alps by any means necessary.

To run Tri-achnid well you will need a good PC with Flash Player 8.

Read the instructions to learn how to play!

I didn't expect this...

This is the kind of game that inspires me as a game designer. It's so entirely creative in the mechanics that it doesn't matter how basic it is, it's still fun.

Kudos for that, I wish I could design like this.

I like it. It's a little slow but a nice game. The way to beat the second level is to stick a web across the tunnel (bring a foot to your mouth, press ctrl, stick the foot to the ceiling, release the foot, press space, press ctrl). Then you can chase the bug into the web and then pick him up after he gets stuck, and put him in the green slot.

But are there only 2 levels? I have beaten the 2 levels and I am at this screen with unreadable text at the top, and there's an arrow to go back but none to go forward.

This is so awesome that it's just plain annoying x.x

I'm programming a game using ragdoll physics as a base at the moment, and i was hoping to be the first person to do something truly worth-while with it in flash (i'm not aware of a decent use of it before), but i think you just totally blew me out of the water. The game design is amazing, the programming is amazing, the music is amazing, and it looks amazing too.

I played the same level about 15 times (because i suck) and i still didn't get bored. Fantastic game.

Interesting idea and well exectuted.

A most interesting game we have here. Controlling the Tri-achnid comes almost naturally after a little while of playing, and the web slinging adds nicely to the exploring nature of this game to get about.

As much as I enjoyed it, a particular level comes to mind as having an unobtainable grub, so maybe you could help us out: the repel stage has a grub near spikes that you only can get with a flyer bug, but after getting up there, I don't think there's a way to get back down again. Care to give us all a little tip on that stage for a 100% game?

All in all, I enjoyed the game. Original, well designed and good coding. Definitely looking foward to the next installment come 2007.

Cool, someone found out how to fly.

The getting back is the hardest part I guess. you have still the bird and the rope. you just jump of against the wind and quickly pull the rope. Pretty tricky.

Or you sust roll over the spikes so you hit them with only one leg. and only short, but that's even harder I guess.
