Hotline Miami (@HotlineMiami) April 18, 2013


Hotline Miami is a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay and skull crushing close combat. Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you will assume the role of a mysterious antihero on a murderous rampage against the shady underworld at the behest of voices on your answering machine. Soon you'll find yourself struggling to get a grip of what is going on and why you are prone to these acts of violence.

Features:

  • Breakneck gunplay in bloodstained neon corridors combined with an intense, pumping soundtrack
  • A surreal and gritty storyline panned out over 20 brutal multi-level maps
  • Heart-stopping battles against a bizarre cast of bosses from Miami's underground
  • Wield 35 different weapons - from shotguns and assault rifles to katanas and lead pipes - everything is at your disposal
  • Over 1,000 different sprites for a fantastic variety of environments, weapons, items, and enemy death animations to keep the killing fresh
  • Slip on one of 25 unlockable animal masks to conceal your identity and tweak the gameplay in your favor or crank up the challenge
  • Driving beats and brooding sounds by Sun Araw, Coconuts, M.O.O.N., Jasper Byrne, El Huervo, Perturbator, Scattle, Elliott Berlin and Eirik Suhrke
  • Tough as nails Achievements that test your limits and leaderboards to prove your worth


The game itself is only available by Steam or GOG so for Linux users the only choice will be Steam.

The game seems to be a massive hit with a lot of websites giving it very high ratings so it's great to have such a popular game come to Linux!

GOG won't put any Linux binaries up if you want the Linux version your best bet is to contact the developers or Devolver and ask nicely for a Steam key!

Yeah sadly GOG, didn't want to deal with all the support for linux, so they chose MAC platform as their new supported option.

Why do people play a game like this ? Maybe I am too old, but this game looks like its from a pre C64 era.

While I hate the recent widespread use of pixel art recently, a game is not ultimately not made by the graphics, but by its gameplay. And for what it's worth, this game has some pretty neat special effects and lots of colour so the graphics aren't actually bland (most 'minimalist' games look truly terrible though).
