Aracnia is the prototype for my MsC. project. My wife had severe aracnophobia, and I didn’t want to kill the spiders at home, so I decided to do something about it.
The game implements the design framework that I developed for specific phobia treatment. It had incredible results and, even though I finished writing the thesis, I had to quit my MsC. to enter the games industry.
I published some of the fundamentals of the thesis (and rants about Academia) on my blog.
Purpose: Msc. Project, Aracnophobia treatment
