One step at a time.

History

Origins

SUPERHOT started as a 7 Day First Person Shooter (7DFPS) game jam project made by a group of friends in August 2013. After making a prototype version of the game and polishing it in time for the WGK Conference in September 2013, the team managed to win the Developer Showcase award. After that they've decided to release the initial build of SUPERHOT to the Internet - where it quickly garnered a massive amount of attention from the press and players. Thanks to the support of the fans, SUPERHOT went through the Steam Greenlight process during a single weekend. That's when the team decided to develop the game further.

Kickstarter campaign

On May 14th, 2014 the team launched their Kickstarter campaign in order to fund the rest of the development. The funding target of $100,000 was reached in less than 24 hours, a total of over $250,000 was raised.

Further development

As of 2015, SUPERHOT is being developed for the PC and Xbox One and will be available later this year. An early beta build of the game will be shipped to selected kickstarter backers shortly after E3.
