PCGamesN’s Chris McMullen prepares for the chaos of Kill it with Fire 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the cult-favorite first-person spider-slaying sensation developed by Casey Donnellan and published by tinyBuild. With new settings, weapons, a multiplayer mode where players can become jittery arachnids to scare their friends, Kill it With Fire 2 ups the ante! The game’s first demo on PC via Steam is available now.

A common phrase when dealing with anything that scuttles about is “Kill it with fire!” and a missed swing often results with “guess I’ll burn the whole place to the ground!” Those exasperations eventually resulted in the creation of the hit spider-chaser Kill it With Fire, which will soon be getting an expanded sequel that’s available to try now through a free Steam demo. Donnellan and team are taking things up a notch with new ways to play such as the multiplayer that puts players into the eight shoes of the nope-critters and a ton more ways to deal with the little jumpscare factories.

McMullen also shared praise for the first game’s simple, yet endlessly compelling gameplay, saying, “Kill It With Fire is a surprise indie game hit, built around the simple premise of dispatching hidden spiders. Yes, you could peek behind that couch, but why risk a spider jumping out at you? It’s so much simpler to set the whole thing on fire.” Going on to write, “The first Kill It With Fire was and still is a joy to play, especially when there’s only one spider left in the room and it could be anywhere.”

Now imagine this scenario in a far flung future or a sand-blasted western saloon, chasing around the ankle nibblers with a vacuum, cast-iron pan, laser gun, or a make-shift flame thrower. McMullen wrote, “…you’re positively encouraged to blow things up rather than get an eight-legged beastie in the face.”
