Eight eyes, and they’re all trained on you
Some fucking sadist has chosen absolute chaos, and developed an edition of 2020 spider-hunting title Kill It with Fire for the VR market — Yes, you can now “enjoy” the destructive, terrifying, hide ‘n’ seek nature of the Man vs. Arachnid release in fully immersive virtual reality fashion. Thanks?
Kill It with Fire VR will recreate the over-the-top action of the original release, as players search a variety of locations including houses, gas stations, farms, and, of course, bathrooms for the eight-legged critters. Track down a menagerie of creepy crawlies, before engaging in mortal combat with an arsenal of household implements, ninja weapons, firearms, and other super bombastic weaponry. The virtual reality edition of this absolute nightmare will utilize a new “VRACHNID” mechanic to allow for better detection.
“Fans have been asking for a VR version of Kill It With Fire since the very first footage of the original game,” notes Casey Donnellan, solo developer of Kill It With Fire and thus a monstrous person. “I’m really happy that we can finally put horrifying spiders on a screen less than an inch from players’ eyeballs!”
All jesting aside, I actually really like spiders. Oh, I’m pretty scared of them, and one actually bit me last year, (always shake out your shoes, folks). But I do think our scuttling pals are pretty darn cool, as well as being fascinating, intelligent, and important creatures. Anyway, Kill It with Fire VR is scheduled to launch “soon” on PlayStation VR 1 & 2, SteamVR, and Meta Quest 2.
I’m probably going to assign the review to CJ Andriessen. He’ll love it.
