Superhot VR has grossed over $2 million over the past week. The bullet-time shooter hit a major stride through the Christmas season and continues to prove the viability of virtual reality.
Superhot VR is an adaptation of the original Superhot for virtual reality. You play as a gamer who must don their virtual reality headset and take out enemies.
Superhot VR Brings High-Intensity Action to VR
What makes this game stand out is the style and how the action only moves when you move. The minimalist style also works well in virtual reality.
Even though Superhot VR was released over two years ago, it continues to grow in popularity. The release and proliferation of new virtual reality platforms, including the Oculus Quest, have helped bolster sales.
Superhot VR encapsulates the best aspects of virtual reality as it is easy to play, yet there are a ton of ways to master it. It also comes with a party mode that shows off some of the best parts of the game to others in a social space.
New updates to the game have also added more to the whole package, which includes hoard mode and other challenges.
Virtual Reality Gaming Continues to Grow
While most have viewed the virtual reality space as a declining market, this clearly shows the opposite is true. Virtual reality gaming continues to be a growing space, and with the release of the upcoming Half-Life: Alyx, it is sure to grow more.
Even with the next generation of consoles, virtual reality is still a significant possibility. PlayStation, which has the PlayStation VR headset, has new plans for an updated virtual reality headset and more.
