Hotline Miami is out and I am knee deep in dead goons.
For those that don't know about the game, get some knowledge. It is a top down, one hit kill murder orgasm in a neon soaked Miami. You are a guy that wears animal masks who goes on jobs for people. These jobs involve you battering the piss out of loads of bad guys. In each level you charge into a building, murder everyone in it and get out. You will die in one hit so the first priority is making it through the level and then maximising your score with combos. As soon as you die you can restart and you keep trying and trying until you make it through. It feels a lot like Super Meat Boy in that it is unforgiving, fast paced and immensely rewarding when you get it right.
The game looks fantastic. It is brightly coloured but incredibly seedy at the same time. The music is also brilliant some warped electronica perfectly setting the mood.
I don't want to say too much more as the story is weird and Lynchian and best discovered by playing it.
Yeah patch for pad support fix is being worked on as we speak.
I must admit I saw video previews and left it at that, Boris told me yesterday he bought it and I was like IT'S OUT??
Will have to grab it soon.
