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!

With this update for SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE we add some seriously exciting stuff. This game is evergrowing amalgam of community driven ideas (thank you for being friggin awesome) and design experiments. It already came a long way but I can't wait how it will look once we are out of Early Access.
For now let's see what's new in today’s update shall we?


An abomination born out of your crazy minds and our shaky hands. We had some shy prototypes of this dude but when our Discord started to go back and forth about an enemy covered by mushrooms we knew we have to step it up.
More about this fellow over HERE
Basically mushroom infected enemies will explode after you shoot them, hit with throwables or just come into contact. They are equally dangerous for both player and other red guys. No one is safe from MushroomDudes.


We decided that minds need some kind of introduction within the game.
A soft start, for the player where he can get accustomed with skills and general vibe of particular mind. Therefore we added 3 additional levels for each of minds.
They are not only tutorials that teach you how to play a certain mind but also create a themed background.

As usual we did slight reshuffling of mods and added few new ones. Do let us know what is your experience with them.


Two new mods for the Ninja Mind. Sexiness factor of this guy just jumped a notch.
First of all we have Recall Recharge. Thanks to this mod every kill that you score with katana will reduce the cooldown of your Recall skill. It makes the ninja gameplay even more frantic.
Next one is Flow Recall mod. Once unlocked, it makes your katana bounce between enemies in a wonderful display of blade brutality. It works almost like a certain Captain’s shield ;)

Additional changes to mods for Ninja mind are as follows:
  • moved Faster Movement to Swordmaster path
  • moved Piercing Katana to Recall path
  • removed killer goomba stomp MOD


Addict also got lucky and lands with three fresh mods.
We removed previous Start With [enter weapon here] and merged them into StartWithRandom.
So after purchasing this mod you start with a gun picked by your friendly neighborhood game.
Next up is Quickshot which reduces the reload time on all guns.
Less reloading, more shooting. Everyone is happy.
Finally third mod is Ricochet.
From now on you will be able to bounce your bullets of walls. Let’s be honest, this mod is designed so that you can kill red guys with more swag.


New difficulty curve of main RUNs

Again, let us know how it plays after the change. Our goal here is to allow people to finish MCD main RUNs with a slight challenge but nothing insane. The crazy difficulty runs will be spread out in the further corners of The Pyramid.

Challenge RUNs

We finally came back to challenges. They were pretty popular in original SUPERHOT so we just couldn’t make MCD without them. A challenge is a run with slightly changed rules of the game. That might be anything from enemies spawning with shotguns only to...hmmm go explore, why should I spoil the fun of discovery? :) Only thing that I can tell you is that we will add more challenges in upcoming updates. Guys working on them are having too much fun to stop.


New weapon - FishGun

Why is it called fishgun? Cause it looks like catfish? Funny right? No? Uhm. Awkard, let’s keep going.
So a lot of you somehow managed to reach stages in SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE where our studio gnomes hid upcoming secret weapon. Discord and reddit got filled with screenshots and speculations of some weird looking weapon. Well here it is.
FishGun is a long distance rifle with ultra fast, almost unavoidable bullets. It looks almost like a hitscan shot but it’s not. As most things in MIND CONTROL DELETE Fish Gun is still in development phase so everything about it might change.
Play around with it. Let us know how it feels.

Shotgun Tweaks

After this update every time Shotgun runs out of bullets it will change into melee weapon.
We plan to add this feature to every weapon in MCD arsenal.
There are also some slight changes in ammo count and reload time for shotgun.

That is all for today’s update! Give it a go and let us know how you feel about it.

Dogs are awesome.

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

"In the infinite permutation of an ice crystal, everything repeats itself, but, really, from another point of view, nothing repeats itself."
Anthony Doerr

Hey there

We had quite a few discussions in the studio regarding changing and modifying the concept of our exploding mushrooms in SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE. We did experiments with cone of explosion, trigger points and placement within the level. Somewhere along the way though a concept of new enemy type emerged. A red guy (or agent if you prefer) that has caught the mushroom "virus". Our thinking was that if the mushroom implies glitch and error in the system, it should spread. Therefore a mushroom “infected” enemy.

What made us really happy is that a lot of you had a ton of great ideas and really expanded on the concept of mushroom enemies without a single hint from us. All of the suggestions and ideas regarding this concept gave us some serious fuel for work. We really had to step up our prototyping for the mushroom enemy. Apparently there was a need for this guy.

So how is it going to work?
Remember Serious Sam (best running backwards fps ever)?
So think of the headless enemy with bombs. Hmmm maybe less annoying but as dangerous.
Mushroom infected enemy will explode on contact wtih any shots, throwables but also within a given space from the player. While being dangerous for the player it poses similar risks for your enemies.

A situation might happen when a whole level will be cleared without you shooting a single bullet but due to clumsiness of your enemies or your tactical approach to positioning.
As usual due to SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE being in early access everything in the design and mechanics of Mushroom(ed) enemy might change.

Also next Update will drop next week on thursday.
Day before we will do a small dev stream previewing all the new content.

Hug people, spread love.
