SUPERHOT VR is surely one of the best pieces of VR content available today, but has remained exclusive to Oculus since launch. The developers have teased that the game is coming to the HTC Vive this Thursday, May 25th, but you can already play it today thanks to a free and easy to install hack.
Update (5/23/17): After initially teasing that the game would be coming to Vive “soon,” the developers of Superhot VR now have confirmed the game will launch this Thursday, May 25th, on SteamVR. The launch of the game on SteamVR will include the ‘FOREVER’ update, which was released following the launch on the Oculus platform, that adds new challenges and achievements aimed at adding more replayability to the game.
In the original article below (and still applicable today), we described how you can play Superhot VR on your Vive today using the free ‘Revive’ hack.

But for those with a Vive that can’t wait to play one of VR’s best pieces of content available today… you don’t have to (lucky you)!
Although Superhot VR is exclusive to the Oculus platform, a freely available hack called Revive will let you buy and play the game in full today on your Vive, which counts the game as fully function on its compatibility list.
Playing the game on your Vive is as simple as following the instructions in the Revive README file, which involves downloading Oculus Home to buy the game and installing Revive which will show your Oculus games inside the SteamVR dashboard.
