The annual end of year Steam Sale has been underway for a few days now and it’s been quite an interesting sale. I had $10 in my Steam Wallet going into the sale and I decided to limit myself to that amount for the sale. Therefore I was able to pick up two games for $4.99 each. I bought Hotline Miami and Faster Than Light (FTL). On Amazon I decided to pick up GTA IV for $4.99. I have it on the 360 but figured it’d make for some good jump in and out fun on the PC.
I was browsing blogs here on WordPress when I came across this article by After Dark Gaming. The art work associated with the article immediately caught my eye. I had never heard of this game until I happened across this article and I have to say I’m a little intrigued by this game. I still don’t know much about it. The ‘reveal trailer’ (below) is pretty interesting though. It’s dark, brutal and a little graphic, yet the music is almost disassociated from what’s happening. This makes the video even more creepy.
The game’s description on its Steam page reads:
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.
Below you’ll see a few screenshots as shown on the game’s Steam page:
Hotline Miami is available on Steam for $9.99.
