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.

This game is fucking amazing but... its too short


Would really love an update where you can build your own level. Just this one thing, and this game becomes a 10/10


i can barely see whats happening. its just colors and pixels.


Thats the fun :)

This was a lot of fun!


its super hot

i cant read what it says on how to get off the controls scree


What a beautiful homage... on PicOS at that! I genuinely felt your love for the game come through this one. As a die-hard fan of SuperHot myself... I couldn't help but wanna play the original myself after completing this. 

Thanks for the fun play! 


i dont play it because is so much hard


Anomalox, its pico8, not picOS ( im not trying to be rude)



I don't much care, but the clarification is cool I guess.
