Stop. SUPERQOT time!

03 04 15 - 11:01

Thanks to GameHacKeR from the comments for pointing it out (and me forgetting to see if Func_Msgboard has anything new :p ). SUPERQOT is a Quake mod that only lets the anything move when YOU'RE moving. That's right, if you let go of your mouse/keyboard, time freezes. Looks pretty sweet!  It's based on the game idea in SUPERHOT.

It includes Darkplace engine and Quake Shareware for you to start with. You can download Windows here, Mac here.
