Half A Year Later, Hotline Miami 2 Level Editor Inbound

The chance to make your own Hotline Miami 2 [official site] murder-mazes has been a long time coming - it was "pretty close to completion" seven months ago - but now it's had a release date stuck to it. Well, a beta release date. Folk have been making their own Hotline Miami 2 maps via a half-shut back door for ages, but come December 10…

The RPS Verdict: Hotline Miami 2

Adam's already run his review of Dennaton's sequel to neon-hued tactical murder party Hotline Miami, but while he's a big fan, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number hasn't been met with universal praise. Alec, more cautious about the game, joins Adam to discuss what may and may not be deliberate about its design choices, its bewildering story and its bugs.

Murdertime: Hotline Miami 2 Release Date & Payday Bits

Imagine if all your favourite murderers in video games got together and did murders together, like a superhero team or a supergroup. The Avengers with no thought for collateral damage, or The Plastic Ono Band with hammers. Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number [official site] is more a tribute act of murderers, with schlubs inspired by Jacket's cool murders in the first game. Hotline Miami's crossover…

Hotline Miami 2 Gets Into The Sequential Art Business

It's difficult to accept that Hotline Miami - the sound of the future - was three long years ago. It's more difficult still to accept that there might not have been anything which put quite such a fire under me since. This foul-mouthed 'guide' is one of my favourite things I've ever published here, and I'd love to know how to commune again with the…

Have You Played… Hotline Miami?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. The second game in this hyper-kinectic retro-violence series keeps making headlines for all the wrong reasons, and I'm not at all willing to make any sort of judgement about all that until I've played the thing. What I do want to do is…

Hotline Miami 2 Refused Classification In Australia

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number has been refused classification in Australia, joining the likes of Left 4 Dead 2 and Saints Row IV. The report by the Australian Classification Board cites a visual depiction of implied sexual violence as part of their decision to refuse the game classification. Kotaku Australia obtained a copy of the report which contained this segment about the scene (warning: description…

Payday 2: Hotline Miami Announced, Is Exciting To Imagine

This makes sense. Co-operative bank robbery manshoot Payday 2 is getting a new piece of DLC which is themed around the propulsive, topdown, ultra-violent manbeat Hotline Miami. It's called Payday 2: Hotline Miami, and there's a live-action trailer below which contains little detail, followed by some further sentences which contain similarly little detail.

Hotline Miami 2 Trailer Phones A Friend

If murder is a merry lark then why, surely it's even better with a chum! Hotline Miami is mostly a dark journey into the night alone without anyone to hold your hand but hey, shhh shhh shhh, it's all okay in the sequel Wrong Number. A new trailer shows your murderman sometimes has a little heavily-armed help, though I couldn't say for certain whether they're…

Call Back Later: Hotline Miami 2 Releasing Q3 2014

When I first learned of Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number's existence, it was set to storm into our lives armed with nothing but a pool cue and the steely resolve of someone who's died in the same room, like, 58 times in a row at the tail end of 2013. It is now the tail beginning of 2014, but still the storied hotline goes straight…

Hotline Miami Devs Reconsidering Sexual Assault Scene

Hotline Miami has played like a dream since day one, so Hotline Miami 2 is giving the blood red spotlight over to story. Between multiple characters and scenarios, a running meta-commentary on the series' fans, and ruminations on The End, Dennaton clearly wants to make a statement with this one. The blink-and-you're-mincemeat murder masterstroke has never been a thing of restraint, however, and it may…

Hotline Miami 2 Footage! Also, A Talking Chicken

Hotline Miami 2 is a real thing with real dreams and real hopes and real (read: thankfully fictional) depictions of some really fucked up shit. But honestly, why should you believe me? So far, I've only been able to produce a burbling gore fountain of words and a psychedelic, extra-scrambly teaser. Where's the meat? Maybe I'm crazy. Maybe I'm just making the whole thing up.…

Hotline Miami 2: Multiplayer? No. Map Editor? Hopefully!

BOOM. Stop. BOOM. Stop. BOOM. Stop. That was the entirety of my Hotline Miami fan fiction. Do you like it? Personally, I think it falls apart a bit in the third act, but I suppose I am my own harshest critic. The reason I mention it, though, is that I imagine there'd be quite a few more BOOMs in the mix if multiplayer were part…

Revealed – Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

Yes, it's happening.  Hotline Miami 2 is indeed very real, and the neon-slathered sequel made quite the appearance at E3 last week. Or rather, um, outside it. In a parking lot. Inside a trailer. It was an oddball setup even by E3 standards, but it got the job done. A brand new sparse, acoustic theme song drifted through the wheeled bullet's chrome-y confines, mirroring the…

HOTLINE MIAMI 2

I dove back down Hotline Miami's blood-slick Slip 'n' Slide of utterly blissful brutality this weekend, and now it's all I can think about. It's a testament to the sheer refinement of its systems, I think, that it can so thoroughly hook me time and time again. But nothing is perfect - not even when it's really, really close. So Cactus and co are charging…

Hanging On The Telephone: Hotline Miami DLC Planned

Part of me objects to the very concept of expanding Hotline Miami - "IT IS A PURE AND PERFECT SHINING DIAMOND OF FLOW, CONTROL, MOOD AND BRUTALITY LEAVE IT ALONE" - but most of me just wants to play some more Hotline Miami. Devs Dennaton have quietly revealed that DLC for the game of fluid murder is in the works, as well as ongoing patching…

Hotline Miami Aids Pirates Instead Of Murdering Them

If you can't beat 'em, well... that's not actually a phrase that exists in the world of Hotline Miami. It's either beat (with a colorful assortment of bats, drills, pipes, and katanas) or be beaten black and blue and red and neon pink. There is, as Yoda says - presumably as a result of some LSD-induced hallucination - no try. Hotline Miami's creators, however, are…
