Spiders is a French video game development studio that was formed by several French videogame veterans who worked together on the creation of the Silverfall game (and its add-on) and decided to pursue a new venture together. They specialize in the design and development of action role-playing games, owing to their previous experience.[1]

Game engine[edit]

All Spiders games are produced and developed using the companies own multi-platform engine and tool-kit called the Silk Engine. The Silk engine was designed and developed internally based on the PhyreEngine (trademark of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe).

Silk integrates the latest developments in graphics (deferred rendering, HDR, global illumination, ambient occlusion, multiple shadow casters, advanced image post processing, versatile particles systems…), and runs as smoothly on PS3 as on Xbox 360 and PC.[2]
