About Hotline Miami

About this game

Developed by Dennaton Games and published by Devolver Digital.

Step into an alternative version of Miami during the year 1989 and assume the role of an antihero who is on a murderous rampage against the shady underworld.

Nighttime Heroics

In this action-packed top-down shooter, you'll need to act before the enemy does, as you'll always find yourself outnumbered as the antihero. Every shot must be precise and deadly, lest your heroic career comes to an end.

Are You Ready For The Challenge?

Hotline Miami offers a driving soundtrack, a crazy chain of events, and a phenomenal visual style to go along with its brutal challenge.
