UPDATE - The webplayer version is the post-competition entry, and there are post-compo downloadable versions below as well. While not dramatically different, there are a number of improvements in this version and I recommend playing it instead of the compo version, unless you're judging or rating for the contest.

Spider the Fox was made exclusively for Indie Game Maker Contest 2015! The entire game was made between July 7th and August 7th, 2015! Most of the art was made in that time, too, but everything else was used with permission. See in-game credits for details. See text file included with downloads for theme usage notes. See the competition page here. I'd appreciate a vote!


It's not looking like it's going to be a great day for Spider the Fox. It all started when the tree on her parents' flying island dropped a seed ... and now she has to run, jump, climb, and grow her way through a colorful, fantastical world chock-full of quirky characters and scenic vistas.

The goal? It's time to grow her own flying island.

But, in order to do that, what does she need first?

Seeds. Magical seeds, which seem to be in just about everything in this world. Why does she need all these seeds?

Well, she's got ...

[wait for it]

... some growing up to do.

Did I mention the puns? I'm pretty sure I mentioned the puns.

Install instructions

Find your platform, download, unzip, and find the executable!

Note that parts of this game are graphically intensive, so you may want to play around with the graphics quality settings before you settle in. I've also been informed that it works best at higher resolutions, as the text can get cut off otherwise. I'll fix that in a later version!

If you're looking for the competition version, it's right here! Look for a file labeled (v1_0_1)!
