SUPERHOT visiting Japan in new spin-off

Super-stylish time-slowing shooter SUPERHOT is off to Japan in a new spin-off game, temporarily titled SUPERHOT JP. It'll shoot and slice through Japanese environments from hot springs to karaoke bars, with new enemies, weapons, and other local fun. The folks at SUPERHOT Team aren't making this one, rather Japanese studio GameTomo, who say they're working "with guidance from" the creators. GameTomo plan to release SUPERHOT…

Feature: Awards from the awarded

The games of the year, according to GDC’s award winners

The awards ceremony at this year’s GDC was fun. At least, that’s what John told me from his seat in the crowd, where he saw the winners mount a stage some would consider too colourful for this planet. The Independent Games Festival Awards and subsequent Game Developer’s Choice Awards saw a range of trophy-grabbers, from indie students to adventure game veterans. Unfortunately for them, I…

Mind Control Delete is a standalone Superhot expansion

Super-whot?!! A standalone expansion for ace 'time moves when you do' shooter, Superhot, is releasing on Steam early access tomorrow. Superhot: Mind Control Delete will free if you already own the original, though it costs money during early access, and introduces a roguelike twist to the time-bending FPS. There's a reveal trailer below, which I'm going to cleverly describe as a supercut even if that's…

Look, Both Hands: Superhot VR Gets Gameplay Trailer

A couple of weeks back, we learned that time-manipulating FPS SUPERHOT [official site] was in-line for an Oculus Rift-powered virtual reality edition. Speaking on Reddit, SUPERHOT Team's PR person Szymon Krukowski explained that the hardware's as yet unreleased motion controllers are tied to the game's start-stop mechanics and it all sounded pretty wonderful. Now SUPERHOT VR has a trailer and, yes, it looks every bit…

Superhot VR Will Be Oculus Exclusive, First DLC Free

From its 2014 prototype, to its full release earlier this year, the ultra-cool time-manipulating FPS SUPERHOT [official site] has went from strength to strength. Just ask Adam. Just ask Graham. Just ask anyone! (Although ask Adam and Graham first because they've written good words on the subject.) The first post-release dev blog from developers SUPERHOT Team has now revealed two important things: one, that the…

Feature: Time to die

SUPERHOT review

All I really wanted from the full, commercial release of SUPERHOT [official site] was more of the same. The original prototype ranks among my favourite FPS games of recent years, its 'time only moves when you move' idea causing it to play out like a turn-based Hotline Miami, viewed from a fresh perspective. Can that central idea carry an entire game, however, or would it…

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…

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…
