When life gets in the way, it can get really difficult to get therapy and follow through with it. Treatment can be expensive, time-consuming, and just too overwhelming. Plus it doesn't help when treatments for phobias are behind an image wall of the very thing you feared.
I wanted to experiment with a way to not only give information about Arachnophobia, but also provide resources for exposure therapy for those who are afraid of Cartoon spiders. Thus I came up with a RPG game where you follow two heroes with Arachnophobia as they learn how to overcome their phobia to save the Spiderey residents of the new world.
This concept was inspired by two participant spider lovers who were willing to tell me stories about how their love for spiders grew through exposure. I hope to build on this idea in the future to turn people's phobia's of spiders into admiration for them
