News: Possible Hotline Miami 2 Update, Possibly Solved?

Now Hotline Miami is still something I've yet to go into detailed writing about, but trust me, I will, it deserves it. With that praise in mind, here is a cryptic story pertaining to the self-confessed 2012 "Fuck-em up", which itself blended blaring House music, ultra-violence and psychedelic hazes to create a sense of mystery.


 So almost 24 hours ago, the Hotline Miami Twitter posted this message, which wasn't given any context, but the nature of the game (in which you also have to collect random letters at one point to make a (semi) coherent sentence) made it very likely that this was an attempt to tell us something.





Then, about an hour ago, the Hotline Miami Twitter retweeted this guess attempt, the only one they have retweeted so far, though once again, lacking content.

Like many HM fans, the immediate assumption is that Russell the Bull is one of the masks that the protagonist (Jacket) wore throughout the first game (though he has been confirmed as not returning as a playable character, merely on the side, which I guess makes sense, as cool as his story was, I guess he has nothing to fight for now).

Given this is only a minor detail about the upcoming game, if "East End Hero" is correct, could this be the first of many codes to be sent our way. Perhaps the release timeline for Hotline Miami 2 will be as cryptic as the game itself.

Either way, hopefully by the time Hotline Miami 2 is released, I will have written about the first one. Stay tuned for that and more HM2 news.

    1. Anything else isn't nearly edgy enough

  2. The anagram says 'a surreal orgy of violence' in Swedish. Or more accurately; orgy of violence, a surreal one.

    Only kidding.

    1. How sad, in all my time in Scandinavia, I just realised I never learnt the word for Orgy...

      Those crooks stole our word for Surreal though (surrealistisk)(or perhaps we took it from them)

    2. Damn, forgot your scandinavian credentials! Did try to look up the Swedish for orgy for you but it led me down all sorts of avenues I don't have time to go down.

    4. Disappointingly, I asked one of my contacts and it is most likely just "orgie", failing that Gruppe Køn would probably do the job.

  3. Are you going to enter the competition? Please tell me we're going to see Billy Bob in a rabbit costume hopping along a 'menacing corridor'!!!!!

    1. That would be lovely to be a part of. And if it didn't involve me doing a lazy advertisers job for them without getting paid, then I may well have done so.

      Also not sure how good the quality would look on my canon DV camera.

      Although I am available for private shows if you drop me an email and a price.
