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!
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.
