Part dinosaur, part spider, all trouble! Learn more about the manmade mutant monstrosities you’ll battle in Spidersaurs!
Spidersaurs was conceived by WayForward creative director Matt Bozon as a run-‘n’-gun action game based on an ’80s TV show license that didn’t really exist! The phony show’s premise was that scientists used dinosaur DNA to create supersized insect/dino hybrids as a solution to world hunger, which was based on a real-world theory that bugs could be the future diet for humans, being plentiful and nutrient rich. Naturally, things don’t quite work as the scientists planned, and suddenly the Spidersaurs are on the loose!

Lock and load! Take advantage of this awesome arsenal as you battle the Spidersaur menace!
In Spidersaurs, genetically bred dinosaur-spider hybrids have gone out of control, and they’ve gotta be stopped in the only way that makes sense: with incredible firepower! Taking cues from classics like Contra and Gunstar Heroes, Spidersaurs is an explosive 2D run-‘n’-gun action game that lets you wield all manner of weaponry against your scaly, web-spinning foes. With Adrian making use of weaponized sports equipment and Victoria unleashing sonic fury from her guitar (they gotta work with what they’ve got, OK!?), each character utilizes unique tools of destruction as they fight to protect humanity (as well as InGest Corp’s profit margins). Both characters can hold two weapons at once, and if you collect a weapon you’re already carrying, it’ll get even stronger! If you take advantage of the six different weapon types listed below and switch ’em up based on the situation, the Spidersaur threat is as good as extinct! Read More

· Chris Hoffman ·Comments Off on RWBY: Arrowfell Dev Diary #3
Creating the Content: Game Flow and More!
November 15th! The release date for RWBY: Arrowfell is almost upon us. Thank you to everyone that’s reached out with excitement to play it — you won’t have to wait much longer.
I’m WayForward director and designer James Montagna, back with one more developer diary update before the game’s release. Previously I shared a bit about our team’s fanaticism in creating a game for RWBY, as well as a bit about what it means to make a story canonical with the rich world of the show itself. However, there’s times where we have to rely on our own creativity and intuition as designers to flesh out the sides of Remnant that everyone has yet to see. What’s that like? Allow me to tell you more!
