Seattle – 13 July, 2020: Today, tinyBuild and indie developer Casey Donnellan Games have announced that 13th August 2020 is going to be an unlucky day for virtual spiders everywhere as they set a launch date for arachnid hunting game, Kill It With Fire.

Coming to PC, the first-person action game is all about hunting spiders and causing collateral damage. Budding arachnid hunters must be ready to take on these creepy crawly critters armed with anything any normal person would find around their average house to protect themselves; books, vases, frying pans, throwing stars, guns, flamethrowers…bombs?

Can’t wait to crush spiders? Hone your spider hunting senses in the new Kill It With Fire Demo, available from 17th July 2020 - click here to play.


The spider - mankind’s most ancient and deadly nemesis. As a licensed Kill It With Fire exterminator, it’s time to fight back! Gather your arsenal and pursue the eight-legged menace on a journey across suburbia – although not necessarily in that order.

To defeat spiders you must exploit their one weakness: FIRE. Or bullets. Or explosions, throwing stars, gettin’ smushed by stuff... pretty much anything, really. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be easy – first you’ve gotta find the spiders. Use state-of-the-art arachnid tracking technology to pinpoint your quarry’s location among hundreds of potential hiding spots - then, torch everything and smash the spider with a frying pan after it runs out. It’s the only way to be sure.

Game Features

  • Dozens of weapons

  • Creepy crawlies

  • “Realistic” fire simulation system

  • Gratuitous chaos and destruction

  • Finally learn the truth about spiders

Kill It With Fire will be available on Steam from 13th August 2020 for £11.99 / $14.99 / €14.99. Other platforms to be announced soon.


Can’t wait until August? A free demo of Kill It With Fire is now available to download on PC from Ignition:
