"I was intrigued by the exchange in one of the opening scenes where the Warden says to Snake 'You flew the Gullfire over Leningrad, didn't you?' It turns out to be just a throwaway line, but for a moment it worked like the best SF where a casual reference can imply a lot."
--William Gibson, on his using John Carpenter's Escape from New York to help birth the entire cyberpunk genre in Neuromancer
One of Hotline Miami's more undervalued aspects is it's handling of its alternate history in which the Cold War heats up for some years before leaving an awkward, shaky bureaucracy in its wake. From the many negative critiques of the story one might infer Hotline Miami features longwinded cutscenes full of unnatural dialogue drawing an awkward amount …

Hotline Miami 2's reception has been relatively lukewarm for a plethora of reasons, the primary one being its emphasis on the importance of things not valued by the typical fan of Hotline Miami 1.
This series was always partially inspired by Cocaine Cowboys, itself a very hands off and nonjudgmental documentary about the lives of various people involved in 1980's drug running in Miami. A Vietnam vet details his war injuries and the conditions that caused him to move to Miami from New York City. A hitman Rivi Ayala details making dynamite in the bathtub with his sleeping toddler on the other side of a wall. Colorful and interesting lives are recollected as well as the hugely strained and eventually hugely corrupted police force. It isn'…Read more >

Due to the frequent vandalism of this wiki, much of it organised, as well as the recent Many Pardo themed vandalism on FNAFOC wiki and the organised redditors planning to vandalise this wiki, I am considering temporarily making it mandatory to log in before being able to edit, as this will reduce the number of vandals or at the very least make it slower for them to vandalise the wiki and make it easier for me to track them, and this new policy, if implemented, will stay that way until this vandal problem is dealt with.
What are your thoughts on this, should I implement this as a wiki policy or not, please write your opinion in the comment section below?Read more >
1- operation pardopocalypse started, and fans of manny pardo started vandalalizing other wikis, writing stuff about pardo.
The problem is, there are link on that pages that sends people to hotline miami's wiki.
I'm afraid that the idiots at the FNAF-oc wiki might retaliate, by vandalizing us....Read more >

Some vandals think it is funny to create useless spam pages, if any admins read this can you please go to the list of pages flagged for deletion and delete them. Also please list all the useless spam pages you find in the comments so the admins can see them. Edit: I have found where the vandals are coming from, here are the links (Edit: some of these links no longer work, guess the vandals must have seen this blog and taken the pages down so no one can see them):
Here is a link to a translation of first the page: https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&prev=search&rurl=translate.google.co.uk&sl=pl&u=https://pl.vichan.net/b/res/694628-kurwa-anoni-xd-pomocy-od-kilku-dni-trolluje-sobie-hotline-miami-wiki-okazalo-sie.ht…Read more >

Working on adding images of the masks rotating on the select screen. For reasons. Right now it's a slow, uploading downloaded image process, but I might upload them and link them. Either way, please enjoy. Right now they're being uploaded under the "Fair use" law of the US. I'm a bit fuzzy on licsencing so give me a moment here.
- Dennis has been uploaded and used on his page
- Brandon has been uploaded
- Aubrey has been uploaded
- Took a while but I finally put Richter in on his page.
So, hey, hello, how you doing? Anyways, just prefacing this with saying that I've been editing the Wikia for a while now, but only just made an actual account for it. (Reasons being recording edits.) Anyways, I'm kind of bothered by a few things, like the fact that a good amount of articles seemed to be biased by an opinion or self thought theory in regards to the storyline. Also, it just really, really, really bothers me that the front page doesn't have a space between the "Miami" and "2", and the colon and "Wrong Number". And the fact that it still says that it WILL be released. (It was released March 10th, 2015). Really, I was just awfully bothered by this. Just wanted to say it.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, the only thing that shows up for …

It has been a while since I didn't check this wiki again, I think it has been like 2 months, it was nice to see that people are still contributing, despite some cases of vandalism, hopefully it'll go after a while.
Hotline Miami 2 is coming out, and that might require some interface revamp, but we'll see about that when the game comes.
Welp, summer's over, time for more university classes, I willl be busy but I will keep an eye in here, can't ask for a higher position as I have little time.Read more >
Hello to anyone reading this. For the past couple of days I've been poking around this wiki making a basic assessment on the level of work it needs to be a functioning resource for the game. Here's a rundown of priorities:
- Better/Informative Images.
- More informative articles in general.
- Revamped templates
- Revamped skin. (I've already started developing a skin on one of my Sandbox wiki's, But keep in mind that it is not finished)
- Site-name changed to hotlinemiami.wikia.com (we'll redirect the current one)
This is a rather big task to take on, and with no administration/people-with-user-rights, I think its best that I formally adopt the wiki. If anyone reading this interested in obtaining admin rights to help the wiki please reply below. Other th…Read more >
