I loved the original, this will be purchased

love the gameplay of course, but , i don't know, the story seems less.

in the original, it was all desorientation, trippy colours and just the human instinct of following orders, leading you to an everdescending spiral of madness and drugs.

i feel that just ''making a movie'' isn't that great a setting.
if the group later gets the phone calls and finds out about the whole hidden vigilante movement (51 blessings i think it was), that'd be cool, but if half the game is just making a snuff film, it's not as appealing to me.

Wow...anyone noticing how easy this game looks compared to the original? There are no  tactics he is basically running and gunning, something which won't get you anywhere in first game.

I'm very excited for this game. The first one was excellent, and I'm sure this will be just as great as the first!

Not sure if it is just the music but the game feels like it has a slower pace in this video. Still really looking forward to this game though.

The sequel has rape?  That's horrible.  That's way too much for me; I hate to say it but as much as I loved the first Hotline Miami, I won't even give an ounce of attention to a game with rape in it.  I just lost some respect for the developers... That's really disappointing.

The first game was a real surprise, so I can't wait for this one.

Will the mac and/or PSN versions be just as long  a wait as last time?

(I just don't own a windows PC! and it seems like such bad math to buy one for one $14 game that I love!)

I don't understand the appeal of this game, why did the first one get such high praises...?  What's the hook?

No word of a level editor or randomly generated levels...bummer, these features could've increase the replay value so much in a title like this.

Music is amazing as per usual.

Heh heh. I was wondering if they would show the developer's shirt. I saw it in another interview; it is hilarious.
And I can NOT WAIT for this. "Hotline Miami" was one of my favorite games of last year. I know the levels by heart. I'm excited to see what comes next.

Awesome, awesome game Hotline Miami is. I urge everyone to give it a try. Neon lights, 80s, drugs and ultra-violence. What can go wrong?

Never in a game have I died so much. The great music kept me coming back for more dying.

@Gamer_4_Fun That was EXACTLY how I played the first game, and coincidentally, it's the very best way to get a high score.

@Gamer_4_Fun First of all, dipshit, it's a demo. You don't want him having to repeat a level 100 times while in front of an audience, cursing under his breath and wanting to break his keyboard in half. Second. He is the f*cking developer. He's probably played the game more times than you have made annoying comments on online comment boards.

Relax. He will deliver.

@Muddrox_dev its part of a movie in the game. so it not really happening. since its just a videogame its double not happening. unless its a snuff film then it is.

@Muddrox_dev It always depend how it is brought, just like a movie. Beside, I do find it how that we glorify murder while hating on references of other crimes.

@Muddrox_dev That was part of the "movie" part.  Also, it seems like in the movie that dude was the villain.  I was shocked too at first, but it doesn't seem like a "press A to rape" type deal.

@Idonahari Randomly generated levels? No. But a level editor on the steam workshop would be amazing!

@soulfulDAGGER You haven't played Super Meat Boy, haven't you? :P

It's in the same family of games where you often kill yourself simply because you think you can do better, shave a second here, keep that combo, etc.

@Succumbus First of all, scumbug, I did'n't want your **** opinion ya piece of ****. I enjoyed the first game and I have every right to worry even if it doesn't align with the problem or not.

@Gamer_4_Fun @Succumbus 

all the points he raised were valid. after playing the original a couple of times, i could also breeze through some levels. it's called learning. also, running and gunning is what the gameplay is and was...

@Gamer_4_Fun @Succumbus well you both sound stupid for cursing at each other. and you wonder why your mom doesnt let you play with the neighbor kids.
