Here Are The March Releases We’re Most Excited About

We’re a month and a half into 2016 and it’s already been a vintage year. Firewatch, American Truck Simulator, The Witness and XCOM 2 are a varied and delightful quartet, and we’ve also seen the rebirth of Homeworld and several smaller, stranger, delights. But what’s next? RATHER A LOT. Far Cry: Primal, Hitman, The Division, Shardlight and SUPERHOT for starters. Adam and Graham convened to…

SUPER HOT SUPER HOT SUPER HOT SOON ISH

I don't need reassurance, but I do appreciate that Superhot [official site] recognises how cool my murders are. "SUPER HOT SUPER HOT SUPER HOT" declares the narrator after I dodge bullets, blast my own, hurl empty guns at enemies' faces, take down a dozen attackers, then walk away without a scratch and yeah, thanks, I know. The full commercial release of the super cool time-slowing…

IGF 2016 Finalists Announced

The Independent Games Festival turns up few surprises these days, and that's okay. The term 'indie games' is banned by my hypothetical RPS Style Guide as they're now so ubiquitous that they're just, well, video games [two words -hypothetical ed.], y'know? Heck, we ourselves have already implored you to play most of this year's IGF Finalists and Honorable Mentions, which were announced today. The IGF…

Superhot Is The FPS Made Cool Again

Superhot [official site] is the first-person shooter deconstructed. You don't move and shoot, jump and dodge. You move then shoot, jump then dodge. The reason for your turn-based decision making is that time only moves when you do. I've been playing the beta for the past week, and it's superb.

Smoking: New Superhot Gameplay Trailer

Superhot [official site] this year overtook Cuphead to win the coveted RPS E3 No-Prize for Making Us Coo Over Prettiness. It looked great in slow motion but how does the time-altering FPS look in... slightly faster slow motion? Ruddy flipping gorgeous, going by a new trailer released to celebrate Superhot beta going out to Kickstarter backers. Look at this thing:

SUPERQOT: Play Quake With SUPERHOT’s Time Mechanic

I'm as grumpy about April Fools as the next games writer, but I'm happy with its bedfellow, Make Frivolous Fun Things Day. For example, were it not for MFFT, we would haven't SUPERQOT, a standalone Quake 1 modifcation that bundles SUPERHOT's [official site] time-moves-when-you-do mechanic into Id Software's age old first-person shooter. It's free to download with trailer and brief impressions below.

SUPERHOT Super-Alpha Super-Footage Is … Alright

What's left to be said about the stylish and genius SUPERHOT [official site] beyond "is it out yet?" and "when is it out?" The prototype, coming out of the 7DFPS 2013 gamejam, captured everyone's attention with a mix of minimalist style and time manipulation. If you've somehow not played it, go do so right now (if it works for you, as the RPS hivemind can't get it to…

SUPERHOT: A Chat With Alice And Pip

Alice and Pip are talking about Superhot. It's one of Pip's most anticipated games of the year and Alice is pretty amped about anything which makes her look even more cool as she roams the land taking dudes down... Pip: ALICE Alice: Oh no. Pip: What do you mean "Oh no." You don't even know what I'm going to say yet. I could be about…

Not So Slow: SUPERHOT Hits Kickstarter Stretch Goals

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…

SUPERHOT Is On Kickstarter, Still Stylish But More Beautiful

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…
