but the ?crow? is scary...
I was thinking the bird was quite gentle at the end, considering it could easily just eat the spider well before the trailer ended. I looked a bit and I'm fairly sure it is a cartoonized (they arn't actually that blue; EDIT: or maybe they are? Some look quite blue in an image down the page) version of a metallic starling
. That image at the top of the wikipedia article looks just like it other than not being that blue and having red eyes rather than purple. Also, the sound at the end isn't a crow sound but while I couldn't find anything specific to the metallic starling, the wikipedia page on Common Myna
that is in the starling family has a very similar sound (at the end of the recording under behavior). Also, while I've never lived around starlings my understanding is that they would likely be the most obvious bird villain for people who have.
Everything seems rather gentle considering the developer is Australian. I looked at the developer's twitter page and found a couple of interesting post:
"In Webbed the little spider can stack dung beetles using her laser eyes
. This isn't a useful skill, but she can do it."
"So I was testing physics feedback on this big dumb bird, and um... look, spiders get to be jerks sometimes
Also, please please please GOG try to get this game
about a skateboarding bird (by a different developer but I saw it because the Webbed developer reposted it). I just added the 132 vote to the wishlist
