May very well belong in the same set as System Shock and Half-Life

SUPERHOT IS THE MOST INNOVATIVE SHOOTER I’VE PLAYED IN YEARS!

Watch the reveal trailer

No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing weapons off fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.

What are the differences between this and SUPERHOT VR?

SUPERHOT and SUPERHOT VR are basically two different games with different levels and gameplay. This means that you have to get these games separately. To make it more convenient for you we created a bundle on Steam which gives you discounts. You can find it here.

I found a bug

Few universal things you can try to fix it: restart the game and your computer, reinstall the game, delete the save files from

C:\Users\user_name\AppData\LocalLow\SUPERHOT_Team\SUPERHOT\ on Windows or
Users\username\Library\Application Support\unity.SUPERHOT_Team.SUPERHOT on Mac.

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.
If it doesn’t help or the issue is not mentioned in this FAQ please contact us at superhot@superhotgame.com. And 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 game installation folder:
    Windows: SH_Data\output_log.txt,
    Mac: ~\Library\Logs\Unity\Player.log
    Linux: ~\.config\unity3d\CompanyName\ProductName\Player.log
  • A screenshot or a video would be great.

The game crashes/all I can see is black screen

Some 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 all save files from: C:\Users\user_name\AppData\LocalLow\SUPERHOT_Team\SUPERHOT\ on Windows
    or Users\username\Library\Application Support\unity.SUPERHOT_Team.SUPERHOT on Mac

    to a different place and try to run the game afterwards. If you can’t find the folder, please refer to this tutorial.

  • Make sure you have Microsoft .NET 4 framework installed.
  • 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 “Start SUPERHOT” button (as weirds as it sounds, it may work).
  • Test the game with VSync both on and off.
  • 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?
