If Mirror's Edge and Max Payne had a baby I'm pretty sure it'd resemble something like Superhot, a new indie FPS coming to Steam. You don't often hear the terms FPS and indie in the same sentence but you can rest easy knowing that the game comes with a twist – time only moves at a normal speed while you move. Whenever you stand still, time crawls to a Matrix bullet time stop, letting you weave your way through the gunfire like a crazy neo-ninja.
Superhot was originally created during the 2013 seven-day FPS challenge by the Superhot Team, beginning life as a browser-based game. The full game releases on 25th February on PC and then in March will be released on the Xbox One. It's a really cool little game that seems really simple at first, but each level adds new mechanics and complexities that make for a really involving, fresh FPS experience. I tested the game on an MSI NVIDIA GTX 980 ti Gaming 6G as well as an MSI Radeon R9 380 Gaming 2G and experienced no performance loss on either.
In terms of performance, the game ran at a perfect 60 fps with only very slight and very occasional dips of 1 or 2 frames during loading transitions. The MSI NVIDIA GTX 980 ti Gaming 6G had no trouble whatsoever with the game and altering the few graphics options available produced no increase or decrease in performance.
If you're looking to play Superhot, you should have no issues as any modern gaming machine won't even break a sweat with it.
Keep an eye out for a full review soon.
