SUPERHOT (Prototype)

SUPERHOT is an unusual FPS developed by Blue Brick studio. Finished in just 7 days, the first version of the game was presented during the 7 Day FPS Challenge in 2013. Gameplay of SUPERHOT consists of eliminating subsequent opponents in sterile rooms and corridors, where time stands still as long as the player doesn't move. The game focuses not on the shooting itself, but rather on achieving the mastery of time control which allows you to dodge bullets while accurately aiming at the heads of your enemies. You start the game with no weapons, but you can find them on enemies’ corpses. Ammunition is limited and even a single shot can kill your avatar, forcing you to restart the game. SUPERHOT features a minimalistic visual style with a palette of colors basically limited to white, dominating the environment, contrasting with red opponents and marks left by the bullets.

SUPERHOT (Prototype) for WWW is an original version of the game for Xbox One and PC. The prototype was created during the 7DFPS Challenge in 2013 by Blue Brick studio led by Piotr Iwanicki. You can play the game for free on its official website – all you need is a Web browser and the Unity Web Player plugin.

Linux users can download the title from here. However, the original release of SUPERHOT allows the player only to get to know the basic mechanics of the game, as different modes and elements available in the full version are missing. The WWW version serves then as a kind of foretaste of the full game – it reflects the origins of the independent Polish title.

SUPERHOT is an untypical FPP shooter for WWW. The title was developed during the 7DFPS Challenge in 2013 by Blue Brick studio led by Piotr Iwanicki. However, players found the idea for gameplay so entertaining that it was decided that the much more extended and fuller version should be created. For this purpose $250 thousand were raised via Kickstarter and another $250 thousand were obtained through partnership contracts.

Gameplay

There is no rich storyline in SUPERHOT for WWW. You simply find yourself in yet another room where you have to eliminate all enemies. In contrast to the traditional shooters, the action does not center around the shooting only, as the backbone of SUPERHOT is the skillful control over time, which will continue to flow only if you move. The best way to reach the objective is to predict the enemies’ bullets trajectory in order to avoid getting hit and also to aim for the heads of the opponents with clever use of time control. At the beginning you have no weapons at all, but you can find them near the corpses of your enemies. To make things more difficult, ammunition is limited and even one single bullet can kill the protagonist, thus forcing the player to start the game from the beginning.

Game modes

Gameplay of SUPERHOT features two main campaign modes – a single player campaign and the Endless Mode. The first one divides gameplay into separate missions, in the second you have to resist waves of opponents coming at you.

Technical aspects

SUPERHOT for WWW features the Unity engine, which offers minimalist audio-visuals. Just like in Mirror’s Edge or The Unfinished Swan, location colors are limited to just a few with the predominance of white. The opponents and the marks bullets make are colored with red.
