Mind Control Delete
Management loves a bit of mindless repetition, so Natalie Clayton dances slow-motion rings around them while playing the latest Superhot expansion.

Get hit by a stray shot: dead. Repeat. Run out of bullets: dead. Repeat. Take a gun to the back of your head: dead. Repeat. Each death in Superhot standalone expansion Mind Control Delete resets the board and generates a fresh gauntlet of slow-motion, first-person gunfights to brawl through.

Superhot’s fast-paced action flick format is replaced with a series of practically endless, procedurally generated temporal skirmishes. The expansion fancies itself as something of a rogue-like, but the same combat rules apply: stop moving and time will freeze to a near-standstill. The moment you start looking around, interacting with the world or sprinting all over the shop, time speeds up to match your velocity.

Mind Control Delete has plenty of mood-settings to get through, but when the expansion finally plays its hand it confronts you with a sprawling map of challenge nodes, upgrades and occasional lore dumps. Each node gives you a handful of brawls to fight your way out of. Get to the end and you can push on to the next one.
