The Hotline Miami Story covers the making of this trippy series


Cocaine Cowboys and Neon Lights

Hotline Miami is bludgeoning its way onto PS4


Still no word on a release date for the sequel
Aug 11
 
I know one of the ways I'm going to fill the gap between now and the release of Hotline Miami 2 later this year is.... by playing more Hotline Miami. Especially now as Devolver Digital is releasing the original Hotline Miami...




Grab Hotline Miami at 75% off on GOG.com


Bloody good price
Dec 18
 
While it's certainly been the subject of many a sale opportunity by this point, I would feel remiss in failing to take advantage of any opportunity to encourage people to play Hotline Miami. So, in that spirit, I come to info...

No weapons in Hotline Miami Part 2 - Challenge Scot


A new week, a new challenge
Nov 14
 
So, last week I may have dropped the ball a little bit. Turns out I got slightly ahead of myself and thought I had completed the challenge when I was only halfway through. Whoops! So this week I'm here to finish what I start...




No weapons in Hotline Miami - Challenge Scot


A new week, a new challenge
Nov 07
 
This week's challenge centers on Hotline Miami, in which I have to beat chapter 5 without using any weapons. Even when fully armed, death is mere moments away in Hotline Miami. Thankfully you don't have to wait long to retry! If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!

Hotline Miami: From Super Carnage to indie success story


Dennaton can reinvest in future games and buy fancy fish sticks
Jul 01
 
As described in a profile by Edge, "top-down f*ck-'em-up" Hotline Miami can be traced back to Super Carnage, an unfinished game that designer Jonatan "Cactus" Söderström's started development on in 2004. A...




Impressions: Hotline Miami (PS3/Vita)


A hot set of ports
Jun 25
 
Hotline Miami was one of my favorite games of 2012. I picked it up a few months after release, only to spend that entire afternoon glued to my monitor. The killer soundtrack, the puzzle-action gameplay, and the one of a ...

Humble Indie Bundle says you can't spell great without 8


Awesomenauts, Hotline Miami, and more
May 28
 
By now, you all should be intimately familiar with the Humble Bundle, which lets customers pay what they want for DRM-free copies of videogames, often includes soundtracks, and puts a portion of the proceeds toward charity. ...




Mega64 beats the sh*t out of one another


OUCH!
Apr 02
 
I haven't played Hotline Miami yet. I haven't played many games yet. I'm so buried in backlog that I wonder if it's even worth buying anything new when I barely even touch the stuff I do buy. But that's a discussion for anot...

Mar 26
 
If you've been living under a rock for the past year and haven't experienced Hotline Miami on your PC yet, you'll soon have a chance to play it on your PS3 or Vita this spring. To go along with the port announcement, there's...




Hotline Miami now available for Mac via Steam


Don't answer that phone
Mar 19
 
Hotline Miami is just one of those games that you want to come to other platforms so more people can experience it. At least, that's how I've always felt about ports. After running up against some issues with getting the titl...




The Mac version of Hotline Miami is still in progress


Development team states they "want it to be right, not rushed."
Mar 12
 
Sometimes, the sting of a smaller indie team can hurt. Evidenced by how many sleepless nights Team Meat had to put in to patch the PC versions of Super Meat Boy and Binding of Isaac, occasionally, fixing an indie game can tak...




Hotline Miami fan film is full of murder, and kids


The label clearly states rated M for Mature!
Mar 07
 
I quite enjoy fan films, and was really digging this one for Hotline Miami. Then I started to notice the actors here all look very ... young. And then that child gets brutality shot up near the end. Kids these days! Still, bravo for the editing and effects. [Via @HotlineMiami]




Hotline Miami coming to PS3 and PS Vita this spring


Murder and get murdered on Sony consoles
Feb 19
 
It's been interesting to witness the rise of games that have a love/hate relationship with violence. Spec Ops: The Line and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance are two high-profile examples. Less well known, but just as effective...




Check out this awesome Hotline Miami fanart


All the animal masks!
Jan 30
 
Hotline Miami is one violent, brutal game. It's also a game where you wear various animal masks. Some cute, some scary, and some totally weird. Nothing brings fear to your enemies like a bunny mask! Artist Mark Penman wanted to capture the spirit of all the masks and created this absolutely amazing piece of fanart. This needs to be a shirt like right now. [Via @HotlineMiami]




Hotline Miami and game mechanics versus narrative


A video analysis
Dec 28

Best of 2012
Dec 14
 
While the past is often looked upon positively, it's easy to forget how good we have it now. This holds true for PC gaming, as the barrier to entry for not only who can design games but also play them has become so very low. ...

A map editor is being looked into
Nov 16
 
Despite hearing many positive things about Hotline Miami, it wasn't until I actually got my hands on it that I fully understood what makes the game so worth playing from start to finish. Truly this is one of those titles you ...

Hotline Miami dev helps pirates download his game


He's got no money, for Christ's sake!
Oct 29
 
Jonatan Söderström has no cash, and really needs to make some money off the back of his recently released Hotline Miami. However, rather than fight pirates in the same way those similarly penniless multi-million dol...




Review: Hotline Miami


A bit of the old ultra-violence
Oct 23
 
Pointing a gun and firing comes easy in videogames. Ethics and morals never factor in during those moments of decision and there certainly isn’t any remorse. These are virtual bullets reserved for virtual enemies, aft...




Gross new Hotline Miami trailer fits the mood


Wear something fancy
Oct 12
 
Pig masks. Are they ever not terrifying? This trailer for Hotline Miami, a mix of live action and footage taken from the top-down action game -- or, in Devolver Digital's words, the "top-down f*ck-'em-up" -- seems like a nat...

Hotline Miami is brutal, violent, dark, and neon as f*ck


Jul 09
 
If a talking chicken has ever asked you if you enjoy hurting people, then Hotline Miami is going to resonate on an immensely coincidental level. If not, well, you probably still want to pay attention to the latest Devolver D...
