PortalHot mod is fun with portals and Superhot-style time manipulation


The creators of Superhot are currently running a modding competition that proves the versatility of their core concept: time only moves when you do. One of the entrants, as you can see in the video above, combines Superhot’s riff on bullet-time with Portal.

Check out our list of the best old games if you’re hankering to return to the classics. 

Portal gun in hand, the mod faces players off against an army of turrets, forcing them to topple them over, toss them aside, send them flying through the floor – which is also now the ceiling – and pop up somewhere unexpected to do it all again.

“So, how does one turn a non-violent FPP (first person perspective) puzzle-adventure game into something reminiscent of an ultrafast semi-tactical FPS with high-stakes gameplay?” asks WhyNott, the mod’s creator.

“It’s not all that difficult, really! Portal’s lack of violence really depends on your point of view. Enemies are definitely not a problem here. Sentry turrets are more than capable at filling that role, and if you’re bored with bullets you also have other options.”

The #MAKEITSUPERHOT competition ends at 12am UTC on February 26, 2017, and will be judged by ModDB, Superhot Team, and IMGN.PRO. Each entrant receives a Steam key for Superhot.
