New Indie Game ‘SUPERHOT’ Out Tomorrow

superhot kickstarter-2Remember that level in Braid where the movement of time corresponded with your character’s movement? Now imagine that mechanic at play in a first person shooter.

Interested?… or confused?

Either way, you might want to check out this new footage from SUPERHOT, a new first person shooter where time moves only when you move!

SUPERHOT was first conceived in a game jam in 2013, and a Kickstarter was launched in May the following year.

The Steam description for the game is as follows:

Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, SUPERHOT is the FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.

With its unique, stylized graphics SUPERHOT finally adds something new and disruptive to the FPS genre. SUPERHOT’s polished, minimalist visual language helps you concentrate on the most important – on the fluidity of gameplay and cinematic beauty of the fight.

SUPERHOT was developed in the Unity engine, it’s the first game developed by the Superhot Team, and it will be released on Steam tomorrow!
