Who ever said the '80s went away? Because they didn't, and they're probably never going to leave.

Though the name might suggest a pulsating, acid-hazed version of Oregon Trail, that’s not quite what I had in mind when I said “opposite.” Shame, but Hotline Trail is nonetheless sublime in its simplicity. The infinite biker takes clear aesthetic inspiration from Hotline Miami (or perhaps the same sources as Hotline Miami), but its immediate vibe pulls an engine-roaring 180. Instead of ratcheting up the stakes and drowning the proceedings in schizophrenic chaos, Hotline Trail’s soothing electronic soundtrack and voiceover encourage you to find a groove and lose yourself in it.

How to make people like you: brazely admit the thing you want.

I think I might be very easy to please. A simple parody, a few jokes, an old music video, some great games made cheap. It’s Forkstarter, in which Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker pitches to gamers as to why they should “contribute to the phenomenal wealth of Mr. Parker and usher in a new age of extravagant spending and unmitigated opulence the likes of which the video game industry has never seen.”

I am pleased. Also, Hotline Miami is only £1.74. (more…)

The cold blooded killers at Devolver Digital have released Shadow Warrior onto the world and the special edition includes the Hotline Miami katana as an in-game weapon. It's the best weapon in the game, obviously.

I have no idea what's going on here, but I really, really want to find out.

This is probably the most exciting game-related anything> I’ve seen in months. And yes, as the headline suggests, it’s entirely bonkers. Remember Zineth developer Arcane Kids’ Tribes-meets-Tony-Hawk thing Perfect Stride? Well, it’s just one of 30+ games (23 of which are already finished and playable) that’ll immediately be yours if you hand LA Game Space a pithy 15 of your bacteria-and-filth-ridden Human Dollars. Experimental Game Pack 01 also includes entirely new projects from the likes of Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi, Adventure Time (yes, the TV show) maestro Pendleton Ward, Hotline Miami madman Cactus, Kentucky Route Zero devs Jake Elliott and Tamas Kemenczy, and sooooooooooo many more. I’m not even going to pretend to be impartial on this one. Buy it. Buy it because duh.

Just wanted to drop a note to our lovely, bloodthirsty fans of Hotline Miami about Devolver Digital's new game Shadow Warrior. Dennaton has been nice enough to offer up the super rad Hotline Miami katana as a bonus weapon if you order the Shadow Warrior special edition which is 15% off during the preorder period.

The Chaos Engine Remake

We last heard about the remake of PC gaming classic The Chaos Engine a couple of weeks ago, and we’re delighted to hear that the game will be making its way to a speedy release later this summer. Gamers of the appropriate age (read: old) may remember The Chaos Engine, a top-down shooter from 1993 for the Amiga. It featured a steampunk setting, two-player gameplay and blazing-fast 16-bit programming. Sixteen whole bits! Imagine.
The good folks at Eurogamer snagged an interview and gameplay footage from developer Devolver Digital, formerly of Hotline Miami. The new remake of the classic cooperative shooter, which will be coming to Steam in early August.



“The idea was just to bring the original game back as it was. We’re not trying to change too much... We just want to bring back that sort of hardcore, top-down shooter, tough game that people remember,” says producer Stuart Martin.

The game features all of the original voicework and gameplay conventions of the original. It will also come bundled with the usual complement of features, including leaderboards and achievements.

Check out the game’s website for more details. Thanks, Eurogamer.
