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!

Nice!

Very unique gameplay. The music was a bit repetetive, but the medium being what it is, almost everybody uses looped tracks. The graphics were lovely, and the plight of the poor spider-thingamy made for excellent story.

All in all, a very nifty game.

Intriguing and Engaging

First of all, the physics and game mechanics are a whole lot of fun. I spent a half hour+ just weaving webs on the first level several time. Secondly, the gameplay was creative and actually thought provoking. It kind of reminds me of Oddworld: Abe's Oddessy for the Playstation. The way you laid levels out with multiple possibilities for acheiving goals was very engaging.

The only frustrating item was the tendency to grab the eggsac from my mouth when trying to string webs. I can't count how many times I was trying to attach the free end of a web to a rock, accidentally grabbed the eggsac, let go of shift and sent it flying off into the horizon.

Speaking personally, I would love to see this in a downloadable format, with maybe a level editor unlocked for beating the game. I would have so much fun designing/playing an empty chamber filled with those fly things, weaving webs. Oh, and speaking of that, it would be interesting if webs could be anchored to other webs.

Really though, I'm not a games designer, and you CLEARLY are, and an adept one at that. Cheers on creating a charismatic character (seriously, I love that spider thing) and an excellent game.

I loved it!

Sure, the controls were hard to master, but you CAN master them. The music was so soothing, so sad. I also loved how the little Tri-Achnid(and his/her babies) emoted. Like, when Tri-Achnid picks up the egg sack it makes a happy face and so do the babies.

I really liked the direction the controls took. Very original.
