Arachne [7DRL 2016 - Success!]
« on: March 13, 2016, 01:15:48 PM »

Long ago, it is said, Arachne the Spinner was cursed by the goddess Athena, mutated into a spider as punishment for her arrogance.  Arachne now dwells far below the earth in the caverns of the underworld, ruling over a kingdom of monsters and sending out her children to spy on the world above.  Bitten by one such spider, you find yourself succumbing to the same curse, slowly transforming into a terrifying half-spider monstrosity.

Cast out from your village, you have but one hope to undo what has been done; to travel deep into Arachne's domain and slay her before the transformation is complete.  No mere human could possibly hope to navigate the web-filled caverns, but your new form has granted you powers that mean you may just stand a chance...

Arachne is a roguelike that takes place on dynamically deforming spiderwebs that you can use your amazing spider-powers to alter in various ways.

Great game. Of several 7drls i checked today this one is definitely the best.
The only disadvantage (at least for me) is it's "chesslikeness" - death after single misclick or wrong step.
