Hotline Miami

A top-down fuck 'em up for PC by Dennaton Games

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.

Hotline Miami was developed by Dennaton Games, a team composed of designer Jonatan "Cactus" Söderström and visual artist Dennis Wedin, who had previously collaborated on Keyboard Drumset Fucking Werewolf. The game is described by the developer as a "top down fuck'em up", blending top down perspective with stealth, extreme violence and surreal storytelling, along with a soundtrack and visuals influenced by 1980s culture. The game itself was heavily influenced by Nicolas Winding Refn's neo-noir crime drama film Drive; the director is specifically thanked in the credits.


Designer Cactus notably jumped into the trenches at torrent site The Pirate Bay to offer tech support, advice and even a patch for those that had obtained his game illegally. According to Gamasutra, which named Cactus as a top developer of 2012, his embrace of the inevitability of piracy helped start a revolution in the relationship between developers and their community, and even led to other indies earning money for their games through pay-what-you-want goodwill.
