You have been turned into a spider. Find out what has happened - and survive!
"Acht" is a text-based exploration game set in the 1980s. It is a home-crawler adventure where you control a little spider by clicking on decisions. For players who might suffer from arachnophobia: The only graphical spiders in this game are the ones in the title bar and the logo.
While this game is text-based, it has background music and sounds to support the atmosphere and make it more immersive. I recommend to play the game with sound enabled.
