We present to you PICOHOT, an 8-bit homage to the original SUPERHOT game created by three members of the SUPERHOT Team.

The whole idea had been conceived out of a marketing concept of fitting a whole game on a floppy disk. Then, someone had superb thought to use PICO-8 for that. Retro feel and ease of use that came with this tool took us right away while technological constraints made it an intriguing design challenge.

Thanks to the PICO-8 community and zep for creating such an amazing tool. You guys made working on PICOHOT a blast!

- SUPERHOT’s “time moves only when you move” mechanic. 
- The Basic SUPERHOT three-color palette for clarity. 
- It’s 3D! 
- A few story levels and an endless mode.

Easy asf. When do you add levels?

If you want a bit more challenge, play with no weapons and always moving.


just like super hot


I'm on mac and when I try to play it says it can't run the application whyyyyy


Average Mac user moment


That's what I've been telling people, Mac users are the dumbest people in human history. Look at this fool LOL


Shut UP (i have a mac lol)


Nice comeback. And thanks for letting me know that you have a mAc LOL. And guess what? I have a custom Gaming Desktop, with Intel Core i9-13900KF Processor , RTX 4090, 64GB DDR5 RAM, 2TB Samsung EVO 990 m.2 NVMe SSD (Faster than your dad tbh) and most importatly it has an RGB Liquid Cooling System...


thanks for saying me what´s a pc.


Not as fast as your dad leaving with the milk after seeing that roughly -2727.96 in his bank account. Bro needs the fps for his browser games lmao


Okay, thanks for telling us your daddy's really rich.

your telling me you have a custom Gaming Desktop, with Intel Core i9-13900KF Processor, RTX 4090, 64GB DDR5 RAM, 2TB Samsung EVO 990 m.2 NVMe SSD just to run a 900kb game that barely works?
