Back in February 2015 the developers behind SUPERHOT launched an early Alpha version of the videogame for those that pledged a certain amount to its Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign. Since then the developer has been collecting feedback from this testing period, which will go towards perfecting the launch of the full title later on in the year. This week however the team has revealed a unique new feature for the virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame that will allow players to share their best moments.
The SUPERHOT team has unveiled ‘Killstagram‘, a brand new website that hosts user-generated replays from the videogame. The developer likens the site to its own version of leaderboards, replacing names and points with videos that demonstrate skill. Currently the site is in prototyping stages, simply to ensure that it works, though it still features in-game footage of SUPERHOT‘s unique take on first-person shooters (FPS). It’s not clear if this feature might also be supported in the Xbox One version of the title.
SUPERHOT offers a unique twist on the FPS genre by halting time when the player stops moving. Players begin a level unarmed and must dodge incoming bullets and attacks from enemies as they locate a weapon and then eliminate them. Enemies appear as a vibrant orange, contrasting the stark white backgrounds and black weapons. The experience is set to launch on PC with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). With the HMD equipped players can use positional tracking to physically lean out of the way of attacks.
A launch date for the full version of SUPERHOT is yet to be revealed. VRFocus will continue to follow the title closely, reporting back with the latest updates on it.
