Not So Slow: SUPERHOT Hits Kickstarter Stretch Goals

By Graham Smith on June 13th, 2014.

SUPER. HOT.

I’m broadly uncomfortable with games that capitalise every letter of their name, because I don’t like being compelled to shout. I make an exception for SUPERHOT, the stylish FPS in which time only moves when you do. The original prototype was an inventive, surprising delight, and now its revised and expanded return is nearing the end of its successful Kickstarter. With a little over 24 hours to go, it’s even cleared almost all of its stretch goals.

SUPERHOT Is On Kickstarter, Still Stylish But More Beautiful

By Graham Smith on May 14th, 2014.

SUPER. HOT. Getting the idea?

And all at once, the internet tweeted. SUPERHOT, the first-person shooter in which time moves only when you do, is now on Kickstarter. The original prototype caused a stir last year by turning combat into a puzzle in which you had to move efficiently to conserve time, dodge bullets and take out your enemies, and by presenting each of its short scenarios with precision and style.

You can still play that original prototype if you missed what the fuss was about. You can back the Kickstarter project right now, where $14 will net you the final game and they’re looking for a total of $100,000. Or you can step below to watch the new trailer and discover exactly how the team has been advancing through time these past eight months.

Greenlit: Next Car, Eden Star, SUPERHOT, More

By Nathan Grayson on September 19th, 2013.

Sticks and stones (and bullets) may break my bones, but words will appear on the screen when I die.

Valve may not have pushed another 100 titles through Steam Greenlight’s mighty monetary birthing canal, but the latest batch of 25 is nothing to scoff at. Do you want Dear-Esther-influenced Mars exploration? You’ve got it. Car games (that are currently titled, er, Car Game)? There’s plenty of that too. And survival-horror? Well of course there’s survival-horror. There always is. This is Greenlight we’re talking about. But yes, between Lacuna Passage, U55 – End of the Line, Eden Star, SUPERHOT, and plenty more, there’s quite a lot to be pleased about.

Super Hot’s Novel Take On Time-Stopping Is Super Cool

By Nathan Grayson on August 26th, 2013.

Well, I mean, if that's what you're into.

Oh goodness gracious, Super Hot is a great, ultra-stylish game concept. Now, I use the word “concept” because there’s not a whole lot to it yet (such is the nature of many 7DFPS standouts, sadly), but what’s here is a brilliant, almost puzzle-like take on time manipulation in first-person shooters. In short, time slows to a near-imperceptible crawl whenever you stop moving, enabling you to dictate the pace of, well, everything. It also looks really, really cool. Dancing between bullet storms with the greatest of ease – pausing to just marvel at the dust fleck of certain death mere millimeters from your forehead – is a magnificent feeling. Only problem is, it makes things rather easy.
