The sequel to the brutally fun Hotline Miami is set to be released on the 10th of March. More importantly, it seems that we'll have a same-day release on Linux.

The original game was a neon-infused action game with challenging stages and a solid electronic soundtrack. As every bullet or knife cut can kill a drop of planning and patience was needed to truly excel at the game. Judging from the trailer above, it looks like the sequel will preserve the much-lauded vibe of the game while expanding on the satisfyingly bloody gameplay with new weapons and abilities.

As a fan of the original, I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing how the sequel turns out.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is up for preorder on Games Republic and the special edition here too (We get a small cut from GR sales on the Linux store). You can also get in DRM free on GOG.

As awesome as the first game was and how good the sequel looks, as always, we advise against pre-ordering and recommend the game is out and confirmed as working before buying. Article taken from

History, sci-fi, technology, cooking, writing and playing games are things I enjoy very much. I'm always keen to try different genres of games and discover all the gems out there.

Oh and the name doesn't mean anything but coincidentally could be pronounced as "Buttery" which suits me just fine.

Preordered already.

I am usually myself firmly against preorders, but these devs have proven themselves in the past and the game is a bargain even right now.
