Every single action I took, every single movement I made, was with surgical precision. A dozen men died, and their little dog too. I never knew their names. I never cared to know their names. I didn’t even know why they had to die. I just knew they had to die ..." Hotline Miami
is the newest game from Swedish developer Dennaton (previously
). It is fast paced, brutally difficult, dizzyingly violent, and (above all) very fun. All links probably NSFW due to extreme pixelated violence.
Hotline is garnering critical acclaim in reviews for both its thumb cramping gameplay, and its subtle (but effective) storyline: IGN
, Penny Arcade
, Kill Screen
, Rock Paper Shotgun
, and Gamespot (video).
Hotline is winner of the 2012 Rezzed Game of the Show
, a glossy haze of dance music and synthesizers, is also drawing lots of praise.
The look and feel of the game is being compared to an interactive version of 2011's hit Drive
, especially evident in this trailer
. This is a more gameplay oriented trailer.
