Don't like spiders? Play this great game as a teeny walrus


Tiger Style's Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon is our mobile game of the week, because it's delightful and fun and clever. But it's hard to entreat people to play a game where you crawl around being a tiny spider because although supposedly spiders are benevolent friends, they look gross and most people hate them.

Sympathetically, Tiger Style will now allow you to play Spider as a tiny, tiger-striped walrus. The common walrus, Odobenus Rosmarus, can be unlocked in the game as follows:

To unlock the walrus as soon as they begin the game, arachnophobic players must use the SECRET CHEAT CODE. First light a candle, draw on the ground a protective circle using the dust of crushed rubies and elk antlers, then repeat three times "spiders spiders can't get me (without a warrant issued by a federally-appointed judge)."

Then go to Save Sessions on the Settings menu of Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon, click on your current session and change your name to ROSMARUS. The next time you load the Estate Map (possibly even sooner, we have no idea), the Walrus will be unlocked for your non-terrified playing satisfaction.


Aw, that's cute. I mean, I think it kind of looks like a gross toothy prawn and I would rather be a spider? But your mileage may vary, of course, and you've just got to play this game (available on Steam as well as iOS, and coming to Android and PlayStation platforms soon).
