So Superhot Right Now
Just launched at the beginning of this month: indie game Superhot. This first-person shooter game puts you into a simple world of whites, blues and greys, with blocky red polygon baddies gunning for you every step you take. But that’s the interesting thing: It really is every step you take, because time only moves when you yourself move. Creep forward, and the baddies creep forward too, bullets inching past. Sprint, and the world speeds around you. The game is all about switching between the two, from elegant takedowns to flawless bullet dodging. It replaces the twitch-response and frantic mashing of a boring old shoot-em-up with cold, hard logic. How great is that?
$148 from Steam for Windows and Mac, superhotgame.com
