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.

It makes me happy to see that this game is still here. Its really unfortunate that a sequel won't be made, but I'm happy i still got to experience this gem. Though this game can be difficult to control at times, it still has a wonderful story to it. The idea of a tripodal creature that can spin webs and has to take care of its children is great and the story of the triachnid's partner getting killed and the triachnid's revenge against it's murderer is too. Someday I hope a game developer sees this game and continues the story for me and so many other people who enjoyed this game.

Very pretty and sad game. The controls can be a challenge, but I'm pretty sure that's the intention, to make the player feel for the challenge that is the life of our protagonist, the Triachnid.
Also awesome to see an appearance of it in The Binding Of Isaac and its remake. Though there it's like, big. I wonder what its size really is compared to a human? Would totally love to hold Triachnid in my arms and pet it, poor little thing...
The music from the Tin Hat Trio is also phenomenal and a great, great choice that very much fits the atmosphere of the game and its world.
Apparently this also takes place in the same world as other games of yours like Cerebrus Peashy. Nice. I love connected worlds.

The game is good but getting all the grubs is a pain in the ass, especially the ones that require birds. Overall good but I don't recommend playing with a mousepad it just spoils the fun and overall pacing.

I could never really figure out how to kill enemies, whenever I would kill something it would be by random and I wouldn't realize how I did it.

However, one thing I can congratulate the game on is, with a mouse, the game does flow along surprisingly well, and swinging with the webs is actually really fun.

The atmosphere is good as well, it takes place in the same universe as Cereus Peachy in a land called the Badlands and they all pull off the nuclear world very well. The difference between Cereus Peachy and Triachnid is, Cereus Peachy focuses on the tribe filled world of violent psychopaths, where Triachnid focuses on the exact opposite. It focuses on the concept of a world full of loneliness and solitude, where you seem to be the last thing on the planet for the first full levels. But when you do see the other lifeforms that try to kill you, it catches you off guard. Almost all of your deaths up to this point have been inflicted by wrong movements. Now something is trying to kill you for real.

Overall good game but could use more control tuning as the hands latch on to things very easily which makes swinging from ledge to ledge a nuisance, which I have seen other people complain about.

Score: 7/10

I cant continue when exiting a stage, but OK. Is a really good game, Thanks, McMillen!

I want to like this game, but the feet magnetize to the environment making it impossible to do any intentional movements.
