    Me neither. Looks cool. Too bad you have to wait until July 28 for the preview. Thought it was odd the story mode won't be complete & they will take feedback from preview to finish it.

    Surprisingly cool. The game play demo comes across much more interesting than the initial reveals

    It's an intriguing little game. You get 30 minutes to play in the single-player. I'm sure that's just for the demo. But you can restart. It's a first-person survival game. There is a mystery to solve. If you hate spiders you get a chance to turn on arachnophobia mode to turn them off. I think it replaces them with ladybugs? Not sure. There are all kinds of bugs that try to kill you. I will definitely check it out once it hits Game Pass next month.

    Sometimes you find a game that looks like it's made just for you. This game looks like one for me.

    Is it still a limited 30 minute game timer ?

    Its an interesting concept , survive in the back yard against large insects while crafting better items as you go.

    Yeah, it's basically a pre-alpha. I think they want to give everybody a chance to try it out. There's no save mode. BTW, there's a menu option for multiplayer, but it's greyed out. I'm sure the rest of the features comes in Game Preview next month.

    BTW, the Arachnophobia Mode has 5 different levels. It keeps the spiders but it starts taking away parts: legs, fangs, colors, etc. It gives you a preview when selecting the level. Looks hilarious on level 5. They're just these floating round things. LOL

    One would think if you're scared of spiders the other insects would be an issue too?

    I don't have arachnophobia but the spiders in the 30 minute demo are really intimidating. I want a VR version!

    Anybody can join Insider. Just download the Xbox Insider Hub app. No need to join the OS previews.
