Never before has a videogame made me appreciate the complexities of walking. Daddy Long Legs, a game in which you play as a fragile spider, has done just that.
Getting out of bed in the morning and walking downstairs is a daily routine that I’d never given much thought — it just happens.
Think about it: this complex routine includes moving from a comfy vertical position to a horizontal one, walking bleary-eyed to a bedroom door, to then taking on the challenging descent down a flight of stairs.
This series of tasks is managed with the greatest of ease, so I found myself somewhat sympathising with the arachnid of Daddy Long Legs, who tends to struggle with even the most basic one-two movement.
