SUPERHOT PRESENTS: a small new fund for wonderful indie games!

SUPERHOT has always been fiercely independent and in complete creative control. We came up and stayed properly indie – with no publishers or investors to answer to, nobody is holding us back from doing weird and crazy things.

We were lucky to build SUPERHOT at a time when support from our amazing Kickstarter community, the support we got from within the gamedev industry, and our own foolhardy nature were enough to build a healthy studio with nobody but ourselves calling all the shots.

We now want to give other foolhardy, upstart indies a helping hand now. Shipping a game without a publisher or investors is daunting. It can feel like a huge leap of faith. We’ve been working on a couple of big projects that should help make that leap of faith a little less scary for indie developers.

With all that said, we decided to launch another crazy project, SUPERHOT PRESENTS!

We set out on a mission to find cool, fun, unusual games that might need some help (funding) and support (still funding but also unsolicited advice and mentoring). This mission has been a super success and a few courageous teams decided to join our gang. Without further ado, we proudly present Frog Detective, Knuckle Sandwich, The Procession to Calvary, Teenage Blob, T-Minus 30 and Loot River!

the frog detective series wherein the frog solves mysteries, by Grace Bruxner’s “Worm Club”
game background

SUPERHOT supporting Frog Detective is the crossover no one asked for. The series is about a frog detective solving a mystery. It’s simple. It’s perfect. We love how wholesome and warm and funny it is, we enjoy the game, we like the team, so we offered to help.

Here’s the real story of how this happened. SUPERHOT noticed my cool frog game and were like “hmmm,,, what if,,,,, money?????” and I was like “…ok fine but I will only agree if you send me lots of superhot t-shirts because I need clothes to wear around the house when I make the game”

knuckle sandwich weird, wonderful, and by Andrew Brophy
game background

Knuckle Sandwich is a game that asks you for your name but doesn’t really care. It’s an RPG about a boy looking for work in a new city. It’s weird. It’s wonderful. It’s dripping with style. It’s got a free demo on itch here that you should check out right now. The demo is a little old but that’s fine. We talked to Andrew for the first time about a week before we sent a contract. It was easy peasy for us to get excited by working with him. Also he forced us. Please help.

I am very excited for this opportunity to work with SUPERHOT as I approach the final stages of Knuckle Sandwich’s development. With their support, I can confidently make my game the best version of itself and bring it to as many people as possible. That’s really cool! Thanks! xo

Where am I?! What is happening? Who are all these people? SUPERHOT Presents has plucked me from my warm nook in the midden, coaxed me out from under my succouring rock, and suddenly I am exposed to the world. I was but a lowly peasant, tenderly sifting the detritus for scraps. -Look; a rusted nail. A foot and a half of copper piping. Rejoice; I have found some ham!- But now I am reborn! I have risen from the depths and with SUPERHOT Presents at my side I am ready to take on the world!

teenage blob Half game. Half album. All awesome!
game background

A colourful art-punk adventure towards the best night of your life. The Superweaks recorded six new songs. Team Lazerbeam made six new games. We tied everything together into one tale of bands, butts and bootleg battletoads that's scientifically formulated to put a smile on your face. Guaranteed to cheer you up in half an hour or your money back!

We’re beyond stoked to be releasing Teenage Blob in partnership with SUPERHOT PRESENTS! After spending the past 6 years making and releasing our games in a punk, DIY fashion, we’re thrilled to take things to the next level with Teenage Blob. We honestly couldn’t ask for a cooler partner than SUPERHOT PRESENTS. Their faith in us has enabled the leap from part-time game-punks to full-time, mega professional, Lazerbeams. Our gratitude is bottomless: SUPERHOT Presents is the wind beneath our wings.

t-minus 30 You can do a lot in 30 minutes, but can you save humanity?
game background

Two indie veterans joined forces. Dejobaan Games and Grey Alien Games combined their powers. They created titled T-Minus 30. A speed city builder where you try to save humanity from the apocalypse in just 30 minutes. Plan cities, build space fleets, rescue as many as possible. Some people will die but that’s ok, that’s life.

Thanks to support from SUPERHOT PRESENTS and viewers like you, Jake and I were able to answer the question, "If you were to find an ancient office park, could you scavenge the skyscrapers for old staplers and drinking straws?" The answer is "yes," and that's what our game is about. SUPERHOT has been an awesome partner, without whom we wouldn't have been able to create any staplers. Or a game. Thank you!

Loot river A Dungeon shifting roguelike
game background

Prepare to journey down an otherworldly river in search of knowledge and loot! Set in a series of procedurally-generated labyrinths, Loot River is a dungeon-crawling action-roguelike that combines the tense, real-time combat and dark fantasy stylings of Dark Souls with the spatial block-shifting puzzles of Tetris.

SUPERHOT PRESENTS provides access to money, skills and free clothing. That's pretty much all we need to develop a game, or exist, really. I'd give it a perfect 5/7

TO ALL OTHER AMAZING INDIES and those of you who like long blocks of text!

We’d like to work with developers that don’t need or want a publisher, but just need some finishing (or starting) funds. We’ll serve those funds with a healthy side of mentoring and advice, but ultimately we’re not going to do everything a publisher would do for the games… there are publishers for that, they’re excellent.

We want to help enable a few more properly independent studios to exist in the world.

weird but smart money to weird but smart developers.

HUGS AND KISSES,
SUPERHOT
