Superhot A Free Online Game Becoming a Full Digital Game

Superhot is an FPS where time only moves when you do. It started life as a free online game, which became a demo/prototype.

Superhot is a FPS game all about Matrix style slow motion gunplay, except time only moves when you do.

Born from the 7 Day First Person Shooter (7DFPS) game jam in August of 2013, this spawned a free online prototype or demo.

 Why Should You Care?

Well Superhot is one of those games where just talking about it doesn’t do it much justice, but lets give it a shot!

What makes Superhot just that little but special is the time mechanic, when you play most first person shooters the game carries on like normal when you stop, but in Superhot everything slows to a crawl. You then go into the Matrix style bullet time, which is where things get really interesting.

Bullet time in first person? Now my dream of being Neo can come true!

Tactical Positioning

Time stopping when you do, gives you the ability to sit back and plan. Take a look at the situation and really think about how you can overcome it. You don’t need to just think about finishing the level quickly, but maybe think about completing the level as stylishly as possible, or never using your gun, maybe you are playing so that the least amount of shots get fired at you as possible. The choice is yours, however taking too many risks may get you killed. And you die very quickly, so quickly in fact that every bullet is lethal.

Have a look at a trailer for Superhot.

You can pre-order Superhot here. There three different tiers you can purchase, take a look at the descriptions for each, and pick the one which you like the sound of. 

Screenshots of Motion

Lets take a look at some moving screenshots – so GIFs.

Looks like he will be running around like a headless chicken for a while.

So flying is possible…

It’s raining glass and bullets here!

Wham! Bam! Thank you Katana!
