Hotline Miami is actually available on the switch. So if you want to play the real game, you’re welcome, but just for today let’s check out this killer recreation of the game by yeddow333 with Nintendo’s new game creation suite, Game Builder Garage.
It is very good! It’s instantly recognizable, and although of course compromises have to be made (like the fact that this is a very short single level.), be just a taste of the idea, not a replica of much of the game itself), the bulk of the experience – top-down combat, frantic movements, some guns, some close-range murders – are all there.
If you have Game Builder Garage, you can take a look at it G-005-WDY-H1L. I now look forward to spending the next 12-24 months doing many more of this type of post, from “Super Monkey Ball Rebuilt in Nintendo’s Game Builder Garage” to “Civilization V Rebuilt in Nintendo’s Game Builder Garage “.
