1 OCT 2021 - Chaotic couch brawler SpiderHeck, an upcoming title from solo developer Neverjam and publisher tinyBuild, swings into the Steam Next Fest today with a fast-paced demo of its web shooting, sword swinging showdown.
Ahead of its launch on all major platforms in 2022, players can jump into the arena now. They can battle against their friends in couch co-op, or take on wave after wave of vicious wasps in endless single-player fun.
Highly anticipated after its September announcement, this hilarious physics-based brawler pits spider against spider. Armed to the web with laser swords, shotgun blasters, grenades and more, this is a duel of epic proportions. [Continues below]
Uvis Zviedris, the developer, said: "Over the past year, I have been working closely with the community on Discord to refine the core gameplay of SpiderHeck and this demo is the result of that."
I am most happy with just how much pure fun the game can be. Even after 2 years of me pestering them, the game is still getting my friends laughing during playtests, and if anyone should be sick of it by now... it should be them.
"I think this is a great point to jump in and try the game, both for players and for me to hear your feedback!" [Continues below]
SpiderHeck is currently available as a demo, with the full release expected in 2022.

SpiderHeck is a chaotic couch co-op brawler where spiders dance to the death in the grip of chaotic battles using laser swords, grenades and even rocket launchers to defeat their foes.

Single or Multiplayer PVE - Take on the wasps in single-player or local multiplayer chaos for up to 4 players.
Local Multiplayer PVP - Duel to the death against your friends to see who will become champion of the SpiderHeck arena.
Easy to Pick Up - Simple, intuitive controls that will have you swinging around like the spider swordmaster you are destined to be in no time.
Hilarious physics-based combat - Watch in delight as your friends pull off the ultimate parkour feat, before catapulting themselves face-first into the lava.
Incredible acrobatics - Spiders react dynamically to the carnage, resulting in a range of badass and hilariously clumsy moments.
