Can You Make it SUPERHOT as Mod DB Launches Competition

If you’re regular reader of VRFocus you’ll have likely heard of SUPERHOT, a first-person shooter (FPS) that launched on PC early last year before finally getting a virtual reality (VR) release for Oculus Touch in December 2015. It’s become a popular title with its unique gameplay mechanic and so today Mod DB, in association with IMGN.PRO, Oculus, Nvidia, Intel and several others has launched a #MAKEITSUPERHOT competition today.

For fans of the videogame that are modders, game designers, artists, programmers, level designers, illustrators, filmmakers, or just some who’s feeling a bit creative, they can all enter into one of two categories; Games & Mods, and Arts & Crafts. The challenge is simple enough, just create a SUPERHOT inspired game, mod, addon, video or image.
