Wear Something Fancy for Hotline Miami’s October 23rd Launch


Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital’s brutal “top down fuck-‘em-up” Hotline Miami, picking up steam as one of the hottest indie darlings of the year after garnering all sorts of buzz and pre-release awards over the summer, is almost ready to let the public at large find out what the indie hype is all about.

The retro 1980s Miami-set action game is officially on for an October 23rd digital download date with Steam, GOG, Get Games, and GamersGate. The $9.99 title is up for pre-order at these same sites right now at a 10% introductory discount. Choose one, and go reserve it now!

To get gamers ready for the big launch, Devolver Digital has put out a rather unsettling new trailer which intermixes gameplay footage with live action shots of the game’s animal mask (in this case a pig) wearing antihero psychopath and the bloodied bodies of the victims he just finished bludgeoning to death with a hammer.

This game sure isn’t pulling any punches, folks.
