SUPERHOT is the first person shooter where time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It's just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.

MCD Friday DevLog#12-DOJO

The following is a weekly devlog for MIND CONTROL DELETE, the Early Access standalone expansion to the original SUPERHOT. Check it out HERE

“Fear does not exist in this dojo, does it?
No, Sensei!
Pain does not exist in this dojo, does it?
No, Sensei!
Defeat does not exist in this dojo, does it?
No, Sensei!”

Karate kid

The ever evolving aspect of early access will never bore me. The fact that we can constantly reshape SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE is really freeing. Obviously we will have to stop one day but it is amazing to see how the game changes and how peeps interact with it.

We redesigned the UI of runs and now we are trying to explore it a bit more. We felt that Ninja and Addict Minds seriously lacked a proper introduction. Up to this point players unlocked the Minds without any possibility for learning their skills and playstyle. Also in SUPERHOT we had a whole opening stages for teaching the player about jumping or hotswitching. It made sense to follow our previous design decisions. Therefore we designed a series of levels that will give a brief run through the way a given Mind works.

For obvious reasons I decided to give you a peek into a level dedicated for Ninja first ;)
Our 3d artist Tomasz managed to pulled off a level that looks nice and clear while at the same time presents the theme in a playful and creative manner.

We didn’t want to just go for the dojo-style level. We wanted to keep the theme but sprinkle it with our “glitch in the system” seasoning. SUPERHOT’s universe is a computer generated world, an artificial simulation of life(life is also a simulation, nothing is real). It is a computer generated world with an obvious flaw. The level needed to resemble this idea. You will be able to notice it in slowly floating rooftops or doors gliding above your head. Whole level gives you this glitchy feeling that we love. A sweet piece of level design within a limited visual language.

Obviously you might never notice any of that stuff since you will be too busy slashing fools into oblivion of nothingness. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. We understand.

Trust no one. The System will set you free.

The following is a weekly devlog for MIND CONTROL DELETE, the Early Access standalone expansion to the original SUPERHOT. Check it out HERE

Hey there!

Today's update will add content that we plan to build upon in the future. Yeah, it will “lay the foundations” for future iterations. Hence the cheezy name, forgive me for that ;). We updated various corners of SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE, traveled far into the system all for the bettering of your experience.
So let’s take a peek at what did we prepare for ya’ll this time:


Pyramid pop up menu.

We came up with an entirely new menu system.
It will lay groundwork for making the progression clearer and more meaningful. Your run through the game will be far more unique due to your own choices. You might go straight through the runs or you might try unlocking a certain parts of the pyramid. You might just be hardcore and try to unlock every single stage in the pyramid.

More details about new pyramid menu over here


Glitch Barriers

It’s a system that makes geometry suddenly pop out in the middle of a level.
The further you go into the game the more glitched barriers will appear. Levels that you thought you knew will change along with your progression in MCD. This is also an intro to our concept of “glitch in the system”. We are still doing some heavy iterating on this so both how they look and how we use them might change.

A bit more on the Glitchy Goodness here.


We decreased number of mushrooms on higher difficulties. Personally, me love me some shrooms but we noticed people complain about them spawning like crazy so we listened and complied. Here to serve.


We did some minor gameplay optimalisation for all minds:
  • All MINDs move 10% faster.
  • MINDs bounce off enemies when jumping on them.

I am a shameless Ninja main so all the tweaks for this mind always make me happy. There has been some minor movement of skills in mods menu for general gameplay sake. But important change comes with the addition (or tweak actually) of TrickThrow, previously BouncyShuriken. It will make easier catching thrown projectiles and on top of that it will unlock piercing enemies on all knife throwables . After current update you will be able to pull off some spectacular and ridiculous combos.

Exact Ninja changes :
  • Moved Faster Movement MOD to different category.
  • HiddenShuriken moved to tier 1 (from tier 3)
  • Recall shuriken moved to tier 2.
  • Changed BouncyShuriken to TrickThrow.
  • Moved TrickThrow to tier 3.
  • TrickThrow makes all shuriken-like throwables bounce back toward the
    player after hitting an enemy.
  • TrickThrow makes all knife-like throwables pierce through enemies.
  • Added DeathStomp MOD as tier 2 MOD.
  • Cutting bullets is easier even without deflect bullets MOD.

Again, you made some valid and reasonable comments regarding enemies so we tried to deliver. Someone made a good point about concrete guys not feeling as “concrete”. We try to make them feel different by changing how certain actions work on them. One of those experiments led to changes in throwables. From now on they will stick to them instead of killing.
Another change comes to Red Dudes (or Agents as some of you pointed out) with katanas. Up to this point they weren’t really creating much danger. As Czarek once called them, they were “Katana delivery” rather than an actual threat.
So we gave those poor guys an option to cut off your hands if you try to attack them unarmed.
They even wave you goodbye :)

A lot of you pointed out at the lack of story updates (who knew, people actually care about story, damn). We had to steal all the guys responsible for Story Updates to fill up the ranks for Mechanical Updates.At the moment we are looking for new peeps to help out with shaping the content of MCD plot.
tl;dr Story updates are suspended until we refill our story driven ranks.

That's it. Go test this update out and let us know what you think.

Hug people. All of them.
