Cutey Crawly - Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon Is Out

Cobrastyle is, of course, that FIFA song (also covered excellently by Robyn), but what about Tiger Style? Well, that'll be a video game studio, not a pop song. The last game from the gang founded by Looking Glass Thief chap Randy Smith and his Ion Storm pal David Kalina was Waking Mars, which found its way to PC, but before that they made mobile-only insect-gobbling puzzle-platformer Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor.

The sequel to that, Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon [official site], launched on PC last week for your playing pleasure. I would've told you sooner but I've been moving flat and it's hell.
