Australia's ratings board announced this week that they won't allow Hotline Miami 2 to be sold in that country. Developer Dennaton Games has an unorthodox way to get the PC and PlayStation top-down shooter into players' hands, though.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is just months away. The official Twitter account for the gory, top-down shooter revealed today that it will launch sometime in the third quarter of 2014.
What would Overgrowth, the mod-heavy 3D martial arts, open-world game where you play a rabbit be like if it was played top-down like Hotline Miami and featured the same rocking retro soundtrack? Well, you would get the new video posted up courtesy of YouTube commentator, iDubbbz.
You won't be playing Hotline Miami on your iPad or iPhone anytime soon. Developer Dennaton Games says that an iOS port simply wouldn't work properly.
The top-down shooter Hotline Miami 2 was playable on the showfloor at UK gaming convention Rezzed. If you're not in attendance, you can still watch a seven-minute video of the demo right now.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number was officially announced by Dennaton Games. Sequel to last year's top-down shooter, Hotline Miami 2 will wrap up the series' story in a gory, bullet-filled bow.
The retro murder-simulator Hotline Miami has garnered a lot of praise and kicked up tons of discussion across gaming forums across the web. The game made by two developers from Dennaton Games will be getting a sequel and the sequel will be set in the 1990s instead of the 1980s.
Jonatan Soderstrom and the rest of the crew at Dennaton Games aren't rich by any strech of the imagination. Recently, Dennaton's Soderstrom tweeted about his dire financial situation and later said that he hopes they make enough from Hotline Miami to keep making bigger and better games.
Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital really knocked it out of the ballpark with Hotline Miami, it's pretty much gaming's version of Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive but with a much darker and more psychologically driven plot device behind it, in plain terms it's a grotesque masterpiece of digital entertainment.
Dennaton Games is taking a different approach to piracy than say, EA or Ubisoft, instead of fighting against the pirates they encouraged them to update the torrents so that pirates would receive the latest, fixed version of the game. Why would they do this? Because every new player, pirate or not, is still a potential customer.
The creepy new top-down shooter Hotline Miami is scheduled to launch for PC and Mac on October 23rd. The game is like a thriller-themed version of GTA: Vice City where players take on the role of a creepy dude in a pig mask, slaughtering everything in his path.
Dennaton Games has announced an interesting new top-down shooter called Hotline Miami. Hotline Miami lets players rampage, Tony Montana style, through 1980s Miami.
