You are a spider in the big city. Of course, you don't know which big city, because spiders can't read. Or talk. It would be a shame if someone were to strike up a conversation...

Highlights:

  • Engage in conversation without knowing how!
  • Do your best not to be rude or you'll feel ostracized!
  • Randomly-generated NPCs!
  • A fully-fledged conversation system - those around you have feelings, and will talk about them in an attempt to change others' minds!
  • You can reply, too, if you can figure out how to say it!

Controls:

  • Sustain a conversation for long enough and more people might show up
  • You’ll have to figure out how to communicate…
