How can I contact you?

If you cannot find the answer to your question here or in any other place on the Internet, or you’d just like to write us some message please email us at superhot@superhotgame.com

I don’t move, yet time moves very slooowly. How come?

You do have a pulse, right? We hope you do. If so, you always move. Very slightly, but still – you do. If you have no pulse at the moment, please call help immediately. Stop reading that. CALL HELP!

I want to work with you badly, you’re so cool. How can I get in?

Thank you very much! We think you’re cool too. Please head to our Jobs page and see what’s in store for you. Apply today; all details can be discussed in the process.

Why aren’t your games free?

The thing is – they really should not be free. Simply put, we are people and to make the games that you seem to like quite a lot, we have to be sure that this job will cover our basic life needs. Making games completely for free would lead to us having to look for something else to do in life and there would be no more SUPERHOT. So, though it is your choice whether our games are worth it, it is quite evident for us that games generally cannot be handed out for free if we wish to get more games in the future.

Can I buy physical versions of your games? I like boxes.

Physical copies of our games are quite scarce and we do not really carry the distribution, so you’ll need to look for them yourself and if there is nothing available, that would mean that probably you’d have to wait for some (possible) reissuing. If you can get by without physical boxes, we advise taking a look at all the different platforms you can get our games on!

Is there any SUPERHOT mobile game?

Not for now, no. Not yet at least. We, the SUPERHOT Team, have not developed a single SUPERHOT mobile game. There are some games that are eerily similar in style and even name, but these are not our products.

How did it all start? What is the genesis of SUPERHOT?

With an idea and a very limited timeframe of the 7DFPS gamejam – you can learn more about it here.

Are your games supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?

Yeah, they’re pretty awesome.

How exactly is SUPERHOT different from SUPERHOT VR?

This is the original SUPERHOT game that contains no VR capability. To play in VR, please take a look at SUPERHOT VR, which is a different game with different levels, plot, mechanics and some new weapons; a game that was created for VR. The original SUPERHOT (note that there is no “VR” in its name) is meant for desktops and this would be a proper start for your journey through the SUPERHOT universe.
To make it more convenient for you we have created a bundle on Steam which gives you discounts. You can find it here.

Where are the saves stored at?

The example paths are:

Windows: C:\Users\user_name\AppData\LocalLow\SUPERHOT_Team\SUPERHOT
Remember that AppData is a hidden folder, so you have to reveal it by enabling hidden objects in the View tab of your file explorer window.

Mac: Users\user_name\Library\Application Support\unity.SUPERHOT_Team.SUPERHOT
If you get stuck anywhere along the way, make sure you have revealed hidden files by pressing CMD + SHIFT + . (period)

PS4 as presented in the following FAQ, third paragraph: click here.

Xbox as presented in the following FAQ, tenth paragraph (“How do I delete saves I don’t want?”): click here.

Linux: ~/.config/unity3d/SUPERHOT_Team/SUPERHOT
You might need to reveal hidden files to move to .config; use the shortcut applicable to your distribution, for instance CTR+H

SteamOS: go to Settings, then to Display – Interface and “Enable access to the Linux desktop”, click power icon, switch to desktop mode. The path is: ~/.config/unity3d/SUPERHOT_Team/SUPERHOT

Windows Store: %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Packages\LocalState

I found a bug!

    If you’re playing on Steam, experiencing a black screen at launch and you the game doesn’t load, please do the following:
  • right click on SUPERHOT in your Library,
  • go to Properties, then to Betas tab,
  • enter the Supercommunity (yeah, that’s what our community is!) password in the box under the drop-down list,

  • click the button just to the right of the box; simply hitting Enter will not do the trick because of reasons unknown to me or anyone sane,
  • choose “community-test” from the drop-down list.

Play the game as you would normally, exit it and launch again a couple of times, make sure it had stuff to save. If you can exit it and then launch again without it being too inconvenient to you – do that.
Then please contact us at superhot@superhotgame.com (or at Discord) and if it helped include “black screen bug – test branch helped!” so that we know where you’re coming from. If it didn’t – please contact us either way, so that we can help you. It is pivotal that you inform us if something happened; we want to kill that bug for sure, forever, make it regret its own existence. By telling us about the outcome you help us improve the game and make sure this never happens again.

Few universal things you can try to fix most common issues – restart the game and your device, reinstall the game, delete the save files from:

Windows: C:\Users\user_name\AppData\LocalLow\SUPERHOT_Team\SUPERHOT
Remember that AppData is a hidden folder, so you have to reveal it by enabling hidden objects in the View tab of your file explorer window.

Mac:Users\user_name\Library\Application Support\unity.SUPERHOT_Team.SUPERHOT
If you get stuck anywhere along the way, make sure you have revealed hidden files by pressing CMD + SHIFT + . (period)
Alternatively, you can open Terminal and copy-paste in this command: rm -r ./Library/”Application Support”/unity.SUPERHOT_Team.SUPERHOT

PS4 as presented in the following FAQ, third paragraph: click here.

Xbox as presented in the following FAQ, tenth paragraph (“How do I delete saves I don’t want?”): click here.

Linux go to ~/.config/unity3d/SUPERHOT_Team/SUPERHOT then right-click on the SUPERHOT directory and move to trash. You might need to reveal hidden files to move to .config; use the shortcut applicable to your distribution, for instance CTRL + H. Alternatively you can open Terminal and copy-paste the following command: rm -r ~/.config/unity3d/SUPERHOT_Team/SUPERHOT

Windows Store: %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Packages\\LocalState

SteamOS: go to Settings, then to Display – Interface and “Enable access to the Linux desktop”, click power icon, switch to desktop mode. Open Terminal and copy-paste the following command*: sudo rm -r /home/steam/.config/unity3d/SUPERHOT_Team/SUPERHOT

* The desktop account can gain root access, but ships with no password. Before you can use this account to gain root access, you need to assign it a password. From the desktop session, start a terminal window and type “passwd”. Enter your new password twice. Now you can use the “sudo” command to perform privileged operations.

    If none of the abovementioned actions help or the issue is not mentioned in this FAQ (including other, following paragraphs within the game category) please contact us at superhot@superhotgame.com. Please include as much information as you can:

  • Which system do you play on?
  • What is your computer specification?
  • Detailed description of the bug – what is happening, when is it happening.
  • Log file from: Windows: example path is C:\Users\user_name\AppData\LocalLow\SUPERHOT_Team\SUPERHOT\output_log.txt Mac: ~\Library\Logs\Unity\Player.log Linux from this location: ~\.config\unity3d\CompanyName\ProductName\Player.log
    To reveal hidden files to move to .config use the shortcut applicable to your distribution, for instance CTRL + H
    Windows Store version – from this location:
    C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Local\Packages\SUPERHOTTeam.SHPLACEHOLDER_hj98apedv0ctt\TempState
  • A screenshot or a video would be great.

The game crashes/all I see is black screen. What can I do?

    If you’re playing on Steam, experiencing a black screen at launch and you the game doesn’t load, please do the following:
  • right click on SUPERHOT in your Library,
  • go to Properties, then to Betas tab,
  • enter the Supercommunity (yeah, that’s what our community is!) password in the box under the drop-down list,
  • click the button just to the right of the box; simply hitting Enter will not do the trick because of reasons unknown to me or anyone sane,
  • choose “community-test” from the drop-down list.
Play the game as you would normally, exit it and launch again a couple of times, make sure it had stuff to save. If you can exit it and then launch again without it being too inconvenient to you – do that.
Then please contact us at superhot@superhotgame.com (or at Discord) and if it helped include “black screen bug – test branch helped!” so that we know where you’re coming from. If it didn’t – please contact us either way, so that we can help you. It is pivotal that you inform us if something happened; we want to kill that bug for sure, forever, make it regret its own existence. By telling us about the outcome you help us improve the game and make sure this never happens again.

    Other things you can try:

  • Run the game from the game folder on your drive via SH.exe (Steam\steamapps\common\SUPERHOT) in administrator mode rather than from Steam with Steam completely turned off.

  • Run the game from Steam in offline mode.
  • Move/delete all save files as presented in “I found a bug” category above.
  • Make sure you have Microsoft .NET 4 framework installed.
  • Make sure your drivers (all of them, particularly for your GPU and audio) are up to date.
  • Add SUPERHOT to exceptions in your antivirus.
  • Run SUPERHOT from the local Steam folder rather than from the Steam application.
  • If you are using Comodo firewall, follow this piece of advice posted by one of our amazing community members: right click SUPERHOT in your Steam library then click “properties”, then launch options, enter the screen resolution of your monitor (e.g. for 1920×1080 it would be “set -w1920 -h1080”), then click “OK” and launch the game. Comodo should then give you a warning claiming that this file has malicious content – click “fix it myself”. Then another dialog box will pop up from Comodo saying either “block” or “ignore this file”. Click on “ignore this file and claim it as a false report” or something along those lines. Then try relaunching the game.
  • Verify game cache.
  • Reinstall the game.

Should all above fail please contact us at superhot@superhotgame.com

The game lags/stutters/framerate drops unexpectedly.

    Please make sure that your computer meets the minimum requirements to play this game.
    Other than that:

  • If you are using more than one monitor, try to choose a different screen in the settings window before the actual game launches OR when the launcher comes up, hold the Shift button down while clicking on the “Start SUPERHOT” button (as weirds as it sounds, it may work).
  • Test the game with VSync both on and off.
  • Make sure your drivers (all of them, particularly for your GPU and audio) are up to date.
  • If you are using a laptop, make sure that your integrated graphics card is not chosen as the default one.
  • If you have an SSD drive, install the game there.
  • Turn in-game AA off.
  • If you have this option, enable hyperthreading.
  • Disable extra displays if you have them.
  • Decrease resolution of the game.
  • Decrease other graphics’ settings in-game.

Where the replays are being stored on my computer?

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\LocalLow\SUPERHOT_Team\SUPERHOT\Screenshots\Replays on Windows.

How can I share or download my captures on Xbox One?

  1. Capture a replay in-game by following the tooltips at the end of a given level.
  2. Press the Xbox button and go to Broadcast and capture, then to Recent captures.
  3. Choose a capture you want to share or save and press A to view settings.
  4. Choose either Upload or Share.

Is this just the original SUPERHOT but in VR?

No. SUPERHOT VR is a different game with different levels, plot, mechanics and some new weapons. It has been created specifically for VR and it’s more than a port. The game had to be constructed from the scratch for new platforms so it was a perfect chance to bring something new to the SUPERHOT universe! To make it more convenient for you we have created a bundle on Steam which gives you discounts. You can find it here.

Where are the saves stored at?

Where can I get the game?

The go to platform is Steam – it supports all the headsets that we released the game on (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality headsets). The game is also available on the Oculus store and Windows store. If you own Oculus or WMR headset it is recommended that you get the respective version as it tends to work better.

I’m in a white void with just a gun!

It is a sort of a puzzle. If you pull the trigger, a message should pop up near the gun. It will tell you what to do, referring to a certain object. There’s only and exactly one such object in the room – it must be there if you are able to play in VR.

If you are able to move and grab the gun, there is no technical issue there. It is a puzzle.

Can I play SUPERHOT VR seated?

It is possible, but we very much advise playing while standing, as this way gives you the intended experience. The game was intended to give you a feel of being almost like a superhero. The slo-mo mechanic of the game proved to be among the most rewarding elements and dodging itself can be felt best while standing.

Is MCD coming to VR?

We don’t have any plans at the moment to re-create the MCD experience for VR. It’s important to remember that VR is not only a different platform – it’s an entirely different way of interacting with games and it comes with its own design and hardware challenges. SUPERHOT VR was created from scratch as an entirely separate game to emulate the SUPERHOT experience in VR, and it was a BIG undertaking. We aren’t starting any BIG undertakings right now. Should this change, we’ll let you guys know.

What are the differences between SUPERHOT and SUPERHOT:MCD?

    Much bigger than its predecessors. MCD immerses you in it’s world for days of increasingly explosive slow motion combat.
  • More mechanics at your disposal than ever before. Experiment with different play styles, different character builds, different ways to outsmart and dominate your enemies.
  • More power to accumulate as you progress through the game. Amass skills, hacks, special techniques to conquer waves of ever more dangerous enemies.
  • More characters for you to control and for your enemies to throw at you. Test your arsenal of tricks and weapons against increasingly deadlier, smarter foes.
  • More polish applied over nearly four years of Early Access development. MCD offers a more refined, sharper, flashier experience than any SUPERHOT so far.
