A downloadable hack fraud simulator for Windows, macOS, and Linux

A mildly famous warehouse lurks somewhere deep in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Hidden by relentless snow (or possibly that technology from 1994's The Shadow), spoken of only under whispered breath. Legends of sets, props, and bad movies as far as the eye can see. No one has returned from this place in a thousand years. No one...until now!

>>>SUPER VHS<<<

With the magic of space age computer technology, every real world set and prop from the RedLetterMedia warehouse has been obsessively recreated, and each is ready to be picked up, dusted off, and thrown into a whole bunch of empty beer bottles.

>User Reviews! (on YouTube!)<

"What...is this? What IS this?"
 - Rich E., Milwaukee

[Player opens door] "Fucking fascinating."
 - Mike, Wisconsin

"This is all wrong. You failed!"
 - R. Evans, Milwaukee

System Requirements (Windows/MacOS/Linux):


It should run well on any 2016/2017 era Nvidia 10-series GPU or better, especially if you turn down the amount of booze.  Runs fine on a 2020 M1 MacBook Air, also.

The Linux version is minimally tested, please let me know how it works. Pray for mojo.


Virtual Reality Edition:


The V.R version is very simple, just the basic level with all of the interactable props - no menu, UI, gameplay loop etc. It's pretty neat to see the space in 1:1 scale. You can throw so many bottles. Performance will definitely vary depending on your system.

not sure how to run this in vr? it loads but its just a static image where i'm stuck in the floor and it doesnt even show up on my headset. i'm using a quest 2 with oculus/virtual desktop/steamvr running.

(+1)

Please add this as an update!!! The 4 blurred photos. Or you could make it so you can make so 4 random things which happen in the game end up in those photos at the end to make it a personal experience...

I’m putting my best brain on the problem!

(+1)

Incredible work! Perhaps you can release an update with the blurred collection of Dick The Birthday Boy photos mentioned in a recent video, on display in all its gaussian glory.

something like this?

(+1)

Perfect!

Such a great game.  I took me some time to find the tapes but I eventually got there :).  Brilliant graphics and I'm impressed with all the detail put into the tapes and the posters on the wall to name just a few.  Keep up the good work, I look forward to seeing more projects from you!!  Also the effects of the laser gun firing over the snow are awesome!   

thank you giant chicken! glad you enjoyed the lasers in the snow, one of my favourite parts too. thanks for playing and dropping by! <3

This is so awesome.  Pardon my dumb here, but is there a way to place tapes back on the BOTW table and Plinketto board "slots"?

(+1)

no :( you can only try line up the drop perfectly. this was originally going to be VR only so you could easily place them by hand

when will the VR version get updated? 

all of the updates so far have just been typo fixes or options/tweaks that don't apply to the VR version (motion blur, invert controls, zoom etc)

(+1)

thank for this game !

nice! thanks for playing!

(+1)

This is unbelievably fantastic work my dude, but I'm just having trouble with the vr version with the quest 1, when I load up the game there's no sound apart from when I press the oculus button to bring up the oculus menu and for a split second I can hear audio playing but it's only when I bring up the oculus menu and only for like half a second, iv tried using both the link cable and airlink and its the same on both, pls help I desperately need to hear the shimmy slide in vr

Never mind I didn't have the windows sound output defaulted to the oculus quest, it's working perfectly now. Great work again lad would love to see more stuff like this 

hell yeah dude thanks for playing 

(+2)

This is great. Thank you for including a macOS version!

oh my gaaahhd

Brilliant. Rich & Mike loved it!

(+2)

My fist response was, "WOW!". Followed quickly by, "Why?". Ultimately ending in downloading. Thanks so much for a VR version!

(+4)

<3 I asked myself “why” many many many times while I was making this

(+3)

The best RLM FPS fan-game set in their studios I've ever played! It broke new ground!

that’s true 

(+1)

Haha this is so much fun! Thanks for making this!

(+2)

I've always wanted to play as a hack/fraud. Now I can. Thank you good sir.

(+3)

It's like I'm really a hack fraud! Good job with the trivia on everything too, just wanting to read everything was somehow more compelling than the space gun.

thank you! I tried to keep it interesting and 99% true 

(+2)

This is absolutely amazing. I am so excited for the VR version too. Not sure how much feedback you're getting for the VR version, but I had some tracking and light navigation issues. BUT this is an awesome experience and I'm blown away by the amount of work here.

(+1)

definitely had some problems with VR navigation that weren’t quite fixed. Thanks for playing!

(+1)

This is absolutely outstanding! I love that I got to do something Plinkett hasn't been able to do... watch Night Court! What a great ending. ❤️

(+1)

I dance every time the night court music plays <3

(+1)

After watching the RLM video (and with the intent to play it myself later), I would love to see you attempt their offices and the casting viewing couches. My modelling skills are fairly basic, but let me know if I can lend a hand, should you. I feel there is a desperate lack of "behind-the-scenes"/"fictional" location games (like 3D open-world games of cartoons).

(1 edit) (+2)

basic modellers gang! I hope to develop this further, we shall see if there’s time 

(+1)

You know, I think if you know the address, you should be able to look up the ground plan/blueprints of the building via the government... Don't quote me on that, though. No official inventory of how many Nukie VHS they own, though.

(+3)

This is a masterpiece worthy of a Best of the Worst Spotlight

(+3)

when i saw the ending I CRIED. Is this the foundation for an upcoming space cop FPS game?

(+4)

Just utterly fantastic and I highly recommend it, although I thought it was a really odd note to end the game on ten minutes of news footage of 9/11

anyway, back to 9/11

(+9)

"Is this something official that happened, that no one told me about it?  What is this?  WHAT IS THIS??" - Rich Evans, talking about your game, freaking awesome

(+1)

<3

(+3)

Pretty cool stuff!

(+2)

Thanks, I love it.

(+3)

I would love to read about the journey that made this game. I would love to read a developer's log

Appreciate ya! I’ll try put one together

THEY PLAYED YOUR GAME!

(+1)

<3

so i clicked the link to download supervhs-win_v1.1.zip and instead got supervhs-win.zip.... which is indeed v 1.0 ?? is the link broken or misdirected ?? help please, i need those inverted controls !!

this is very upsetting if true, it’s highly possible I fucked something up (it’s my first day). I think it’s correct? It seems to be okay, based on some play throughs on YouTube. Can you check and see inverted controls in the options menu? (Not in the controls menu, where a competent person would place it)

well i am a little confused now, because just like you said, there's an option to invert controls option right where you said it would be.. but the title screen says v1.0 and the file name i get from the download isn't the one listed in the link. doesn't matter, i'm perfectly happy and thank you for the reply, i appreciate your time - oh boy do i appreciate your time, this project of yours is amazing and has given a lot of people joy, not the least of all myself. thank you :)

forgot to change the title screen :( whoops. sorry for the mixup. Thanks for checking it out!

(+3)

I rented out a haberdasher so I could tip all the hats to this work.

(+5)

This is legitimately amazing, and deserves the tag "borderline experimental"

(+5)

You can remove the "not endorsed" part of your description, since Mike and Rich Evans did a "Let's Play" for it. I think you have every right to feel validated, if you didn't before.

(1 edit) (+1)

For a second, I thought the VHS tape "Top Slots" was "Top Sluts" and was really excited and confused for a moment, but then realized my error. God bless you good sir for making this game. Hopefully, there is a VHS that exists called "Top Sluts."

(+2)

I think that's the name of the David Sedaris Collection DVD?

(+1)

I thought it was Alan Funt!

(+4)

you won the internet, thanks!

(+3)(-8)

Really well done, though I'd love if there were more unsolicited political opinions inserted by the developer. RLM is nothing if not political, after all!

(+1)

Can you give detail? Haven't played.

(+2)(-2)

(beerfish is a troll account)

(+1)(-4)

"people who do not subscribe to my exact opinions must be trolls"

(+1)

You're not a troll. I'm legitimately interested.

(+1)(-1)

Okay, beerfish. Go ahead and answer the man's question then. 

What politics are pushed by RLM? 

Please provide specific examples. They've over a decade of content on YT; now is your chance to expose to everyone their political rhetoric! 

(N.b., You've a captive audience so please show your work, pudding.)

(+1)(-2)

It was the most obvious sarcasm I think I've ever put to text. 

RLM is superbly apolitical, which is why the developer putting in multiple personal political opinions despite having no connection to RLM is so baffling.

(+3)

probably more a joke related to the earlier post that says the dev inserted political opinions into the game for some brainwormy reason

(+1)

Awesome work! Do you know how to get this to run on an Oculus Quest 2?

you’d have to have a PC that can run it, then airlink it to your Quest 

(1 edit) (+4)

love this game lol takes away the pain of my crippling diabetes

 

(+7)

It's so dense, every single frame has so many things going on.

(+6)

The attention to detail is amazing. If you're going to do any updates, I'd suggest a few things:

  • Performance
    • Disable shadows on the laser beams (or use the max draw distance to taper them off)
    • Something is causing the framerate to tank around the BOTW set. Are you using dynamic lights there?
  • Gameplay
    • A periodic check on tapes that haven't been found yet (except that one) to make sure they're within the repair shop, just in case they get catapulted out by the physics
    • Disable interaction on broken bottles
    • The pause menu could show the remaining tapes counter
    • Some kind of hint system, perhaps that only activates after (x) minutes or if the player has gone so long without finding a tape. I got stuck for like 5-10 minutes searching for one tape



p.s. motion blur is bad

(1 edit)

these are great notes, all worth implementing. Thank you!


p.s I like heavy film grain and CA too
