Hotline Miami Has Been ‘Torrented To Extraordinary Levels’


Hotline Miami is the sort of game that is unabashedly Not For Everyone. But it IS for people who like awesome things, and so it’s heartening to hear that it has sold well.

Speaking with EurogamerHotline Miamicreators Jonatan “Cactus” Söderström and Dennis Wedin revealed that the game has sold 130,000 copies since its release a couple months ago.

That may not sound like a lot, but for a small indie team, it’s fantastic. Unfortunately, piracy was still a big issue. “It has been torrented to such a staggering level,” project manager Graeme Struthers told Eurogamer, “and given the file size of it, I mean, you can’t really be surprised, right? You could pass this thing around on the world’s smallest memory stick. So it has been torrented to extraordinary levels.”

Still, nice to see such a different, fun game find success. Check out more info about the game (which is currently en route to Mac) at Eurogamer .
