It’s day three of the 12 Days of Free Games event that Epic announced along with its holiday sale. Today’s free game is Superhot, taking the place of Towerfall Ascension.
Superhot is a game that follows traditional first-person shooter mechanics with players able to use a variety of guns and other weapons as well as tackle enemies with hand-to-hand combat, but there’s a twist to it: time only moves when the player moves. This introduces a strategic component to its gameplay, with players having to deliberate on their next move in slow-motion. Here’s how the Epic Games Store describes the title:
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 weapons off enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through bullets.
Epic Games Store is offering the title to players on Windows, but it’s also available for Linux and macOS over on Steam, where it is discounted to $9.99 at the time of writing. Here are the minimum requirements for the game:
OS: Windows 7
Processor: Intel Core2Quad Q6600 2,40 GHz
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: GeForce GTX 650 (1024 MB Ram)
Storage: 4 GB available space
