For those of you that have somehow missed Superhot, it’s an FPS game with a special gimmick – time only moves when you move. In other words, when you’re standing still, time moves at a snail’s pace. This allows you to slowly asses your situation, see where bullets and enemies are coming from, and move accordingly. The mechanic adds an interesting strategy element to the game, where you plan out your optimal route to dodge bullets and dispatch your opponents.

Another hallmark of Superhot is its pretty unique visual design. All the backgrounds in the level are stark white, items and bullets are black, and enemies are bright red. Other than providing an interesting visual experience, this is also a valuable tool that helps players quickly spot everything important. Superhot also has an overarching narrative, which explains why the world is layed out in such colors, but don’t worry, we won’t spoil anything for you.
