Hotline Miami sequel announced
The blood spattered action game Hotline Miami is going to receive a sequel. The developers announced the news after realizing that the DLC they were planning had more content than the original game.
Hotline Miami is a top down style 2D action game, mixing stealth and extreme violence with a dreamy 80's soundtrack and a ton of style directly influenced by the Nicholas Winding Refn movie Drive. The developers, Jonatan Söderström and Dennis Wedin created the game using game maker and released it in October to blazing reviews.
Surreal, but oddly compelling, isn't it?
While they're currently focusing their work on patching the game, work has slowly begun on what was originally intended to be DLC for the game. As the ideas and content planned for the DLC grew, the two developers soon realized that it would contain more content than the original game. Thus, Söderström announced that it "feels reasonable to release it as a full game rather than a DLC". Söderström also tweeted that he was currently listening through an early version of the new soundtrack.
Again though, the team is focusing on patching the original game, and work has hardly begun on the sequel, meaning it'll be a while before we get our hands on it.
