Hotline Miami Takes Home Top Honors at Fantastic Arcade

THE INTERNET – Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital’s Hotline Miami took home the coveted critic’s choice award from Austin’s Fantastic Arcade 2012, “Most Fantastic Game”.  Due out later this year, Hotline Miami is taking the internet, and your sanity, by storm through clever use of neon, chicken masks and epic top-down shooter gameplay. Dennaton Games’ retro shooter was one of two featured games published by Devolver Digital at Fantastic Arcade, along with the recently announced LUFTRAUSERS from Vlambeer, also due out this year.

At Fantastic Arcade, Hotline Miami was playable in a custom Hotline Miami arcade cabinet and included a custom level map modeled after The Highball, the venue of Fantastic Arcade in Austin, Texas.

“I have no doubt this Fantastic Arcade event was great but I spent all weekend jamming my spare change in the ol’ coin slot if you know what I’m saying,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “No seriously, I was playing a vintage Burgertime machine for 36 straight hours. Don’t be gross.”
