Kill It With Fire, the first-person spider-hunter from developer Casey Donnellan Games and publisher tinyBuild, has today been announced for VR headsets. The game, known as Kill it With Fire VR, will infest digital homes in VR on Meta Quest 2, SteamVR, and PlayStation VR & PSVR2 later this year.
Kill it With Fire VR will pit you against mankind’s most fearsome enemy: the menacing house spider. Tear rooms apart to reveal hundreds of their hiding places. Build an arsenal from household objects and military ordnance then hunt down the tiny demons before they slip away.
The leggy lurkers hide anywhere and everywhere. Even the odds collecting a bevy of weapons, utilising state-of-the-art spider-tracking technology, and mastering the new VRACHNID(™) gloves to better detect the eight-legged enemies. Follow the tracker and listen for the telltale squeaks indicating spiders, spiderlings, and other unholy abominations.
Smash arachnids with office supplies and frying pans, blast spiderlings with shotguns, and slice through eight-legged armies with ninja weaponry. Lob TNT at them for good measure. Still feeling phantom legs crawling around? Whip out that flamethrower and burn it all down.
Follow infestations out of the house and into a wide world filled with web-spinners to mow down. Leave no stone unturned while on a mission to take care of every last arachnid in office spaces, retail chains, barns, and scenic landscapes. Become humanity’s most heroic exterminator by fulfilling optional missions and honing spider-slaying skills in the Arachno-Gauntlet. Unlock a secret ending, and don’t forget to check under the pillow upon returning home, just in case.

“Fans have been asking for a VR version of Kill It With Fire since the very first footage of the original game,” said Casey Donnellan, solo developer of Kill It With Fire. “I’m really happy that we can finally put horrifying spiders on a screen less than an inch from players’ eyeballs!”
