Alternate names: Flame weapons, Incendiary weapons

The first video game about Thermal weapons was released in 1982.

Electronic Arts, Sega and Valve has published most of these games

Children:
* Flamethrowers
* Incendiary grenades / molotovs
* Incendiary bombs (napalm bombs)
* Incendiary rockets / ammo

Implied: (not enforceable)
* Burning - there are plenty of games that don't actually set anyone on fire

Related:
* Cryogenic weapons

Lasers are also thermal weapons, but their application and appearance differs too much from the others (and many popular inaccurate depictions), that implying thermal weapons with them is poor choice (unless they actually set things on fire).
Including things like flamethrowers, napalm, weapons using incendiary or white phosphorus, and so on.
