In Superhot, Bullets Only Move When You Do

In Superhot, Bullets Only Move When You Do

If you were going to change up the first person shooter formula, how would you do it? These Polish developers decided to throw in a dash of The Matrix and make it so that time only moves when you move your character.

SUPERHOT was originally made as an experimental project during the 7DFPS game jam, which asks people to come up with new ideas for the FPS genre, and then make a shooter in seven days.

The developers of SUPERHOT made their prototype public (you can still play it for free here, it’s great), which got so much attention that they decided to make it into a full game. If any of this grabbed your attention (it definitely should have) you can back the game on Kickstarter.

Check out the game’s trailer above, and the kickstarter video here:


  • This kinda sounds amazing.

    EDIT: I wander if there would be turn based multi player, no that could be interesting. It would be like that old freestyle turn based fighting game back in the day.

  • Ah I remember playing this awhile back. All I remember from it was:


    ah good times 🙂

  • Backed. This looks epic. I really hope we get some cool movie references (The Matrix is the obvious one, but there’s so many scenarios that would suit this kind of thing – the ‘miracle’ scene in Pulp Fiction comes to mind).

  • I NEED all the scenes from Equilibrium where Reeves mows down pretty much everything to be implemented into the game… I mean it.
