SUPERHOT got funded superfast!


1:30 PM on 05.15.2014



File this under "Whoa, that didn't take long": a fully fledged version of the great browser game SUPERHOT has met its Kickstarter goal in just over 24 hours after launch.

That's a really quick result for a game that was initially developed for the 7 Day First-Person Shooter game jam. If you don't already know, SUPERHOT is an FPS/puzzle game where time only moves on when your character moves. It makes for a refreshing take on the FPS genre where you really have to think about your movements as much as where you're aiming.

I've said before that having some gameplay that people can try themselves really helps to sell Kickstarter projects. The fact that SUPERHOT was available as a browser game for months now has meant anyone can have a go and get a good grasp on the core mechanics. The fully funded title is looking to have a bigger variety of environments and game modes and I'm really looking forward to seeing how far that core gameplay mechanic can go.

Destiny is the same gameplay experience on last-gen, but looks pretty rough

[Screenshots shown here are not the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions.] The marketing for Destiny would have you believe that the only place it makes an appearance is on the PlayStation 4. But no, it certainly made its way t...more

Battleborn is made of MOBAs, spice, and all shooters nice

When Battleborn was first announced, there were certain trigger words my mind immediately connected before I had read a single word about the game. "Gearbox, shooter, color. Oh, I wonder what the loot drop rate is like," I sa...more

Playthrough: Destiny's Mars has cars, but not a single hot dog in sight

I've come down with a bad case of Dumpster Mono, and Max Scoville is terrified of germs, so he made me stay home so he could play Destiny and call it 'work'. But, without my responsible guidance, he got tricked into playing ...more
