Hotline Miami has earned more than a few raised eyebrows, not only for its hyper-violence, but also the fact that the final scene in the first level of Hotline Miami 2 involves rape: Now, things are more complex, and the scene is actually the filming of a grindhouse film itself, bringing Hotline Miami 2 into the realm of social commentary and inception jokes, but any game that is going to feature a rape of any kind must be ready to receive some ire from the media. This isn’t by any means new territory for the team, and I even wonder if this is a way to raise the bar even further on what Hotline Miami did for Indie Gaming and Violence, but by quarter 3 of 2014, we will know for ourselves.
