Hotline Miami Sells 130,000 Copies In Seven Weeks, Spawns Sequel

By Joseph Leray

Ultraviolent top-down kill-everything-’em-up Hotline Miami has sold over 130,000 copies since launch, according to Devolver Digital project manager Graeme Struthers, despite being “torrented to such a staggering level.”

“Given the file size of it, I mean, you can’t really be surprised, right?” Struthers told Eurogamer. “You could pass this thing around on the world’s smallest memory stick. So it has been pirated to extraordinary levels.”

Hotline Miami was developed by the two-man Dennaton Games, made up of Jonatan “Cactus” Soderstrom and Dennis Wedin, and later published on Windows by Devolver. Both parties agree that 130k is “a great number,” given the game’s modest origins as an indie curiosity.

Indeed, sales have been strong enough to warrant a sequel, as well as a Mac port, neither of which have solid release dates yet.

In the meantime, Hotline Miami is only $10 on Steam, if you’re so inclined.
