Edit
The spider - mankind’s most ancient and deadly nemesis. As a licensed Kill It With Fire exterminator, it’s time to fight back! Assemble your arsenal of increasingly excessive weapons, track spiders across suburbia, and burn everything in your path! 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 target'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.

Okay hear me out this but in vr

Review from Steam

Streamed this over discord to some friends. Was told the revolver and shotgun were a bit too much for just spiders. Was told that C4 shouldn't be used that way. The moment we encountered a jumping spider to the face, the liberal and violent use of C4 was suddenly okay and encouraged. 10/10 would blow up spiders again.

Okay I have one massive complaint to get out of the way first: why is there no lose condition? The spiders are clearly a threat, like, a "destroy at all cost" threat, as evidenced by the Omega files. But in game they're all... harmless? Even the one that jumps at you can't even hurt you, it's just a cheap (but effective) jumpscare. Once you get used to the spiders all fear factor is gone, in a game designed to incite arachnophobia. When a spider vanishes it isn't panic inducing, it's just an inconvenience. The spiders are clearly meant to be threatening, but they just. Aren't. Threats.
But this game isn't about living in fear of the spiders. It's about exterminating them with extreme prejudice. No matter how many times I cover an entire room from floor to ceiling with gasoline and light 'er up, or sprinkle C4 throughout an entire level and kill every single arachnid son of a bitch with a single detonation, burn a pregnant queen alive and watch her entire brood burn alive the second they burst out of the womb, or simply just whack a motherfucker with a frying pan, it just never gets old. A lot of the weapons are just useless (The vacuum's nearly harmless, A lot of guns can't aim for shit, the weedwhacker is useless when it has the same range as the frying pan, etc.) but every one is at least novel. You're never going to realistically need the suicide bomber drone, but it's still a suicide bomber drone, you know what I mean?
This whole "extermination" thing is kinda undermined when you only have to kill around 50% of the spiders in a level to leave, there's no penalty for leaving some alive and no reward for getting every single one. Not even an achievement, just nothing. I get that it's hard to be thorough at the start when all you have is a clipboard and a useless spider tracker, but come on, leave a reward for those that decide to go all the way.
Upgrades are found through collectibles across the various levels and completing tasks, but if you REALLY want them you need to put your bloodlust aside for a moment to search thoroughly. You've got pretty much no chance of finding or accomplishing anything once you trash the place. It seems antithetical to the game's design but it gives an excuse to reply levels so it isn't too bad.
That's all I really have for the game, it's just a fun silly goofy time where you enact a systemic genocide of all spider-kind.

Average day in Australia

It will either cure your arachnophobia or make it much worse ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Review from Steam

This game taught me that all I need to combat my fear of spiders is a .357 Magnum and a shotgun.

Genocide feels great
