- "Designing a video game character is unbelievable to me, yet simultaneously it has proven to be completely tangible. I wish to share the feeling with everyone who has ever felt incapable of accomplishment or below the standards of the society around them. Put everything you've got into what you truly love and believe in, and you will be rewarded in spades. I am thrilled, grateful and overjoyed with the opportunity I received and ultimately winning the prize of a lifetime. I’m in a video game! Thank you Sony and Naughty Dog! Stay gold!"

The skin was the result of the "Uncharted Audition" competition, which was run by Sony in co-operation with Naughty Dog. The competition was judged by Nolan North, Emily Rose, Amy Hennig, Justin Richmond, Robh Ruppel, and Mike Mukatis. The competition was won by Jeremy Gallant, a twenty year old parkourist who grew up as an orphan in New York. He worked on the character's motion capture and voice acting, and went on to say that he was "thrilled, grateful and overjoyed with the opportunity [he] received and ultimately winning the prize of a lifetime." Gallant's idea was a character who was "always moving forward, and never looking back."
Spyder has his own character weapon, Spyder's M9. His M9 contains the Call Out and Max Ammo mods. Its design contains sprites of webs and a spider, a nod to the character's nickname.
