When Hotline Miami Meets Hong Kong

If the idea of Hotline Miami style gunfighting set in Hong Kong sounds good, then let me introduce you to The Hong Kong Massacre.

The first release on Steam from developers VRESKI, The Hong Kong Massacre focuses on a former detective dodging, diving and blasting his way through various top-down levels.

There's a limited amount of bullet time available, and a ton of colour. It's heavily stylised: I'm sure shotgun pellets don't actually have a bright red glow, but bugger me it's a nice looking effect when shards of wood, blood and bodies are flying everywhere.

It's a singleplayer only game, according to the Steam listing. There's no release date, but the ESRB rating gives me hope that a release isn't too far away. Not that there isn't plenty of games to catch up on already, mind you.


    Top down John Woo??! SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!

    If I recall correctly, this game was announced years ago, glad to see it's still around and in development.
    Here's the original prototype trailer: https://youtu.be/6W4BFVIizoU

    Polish up those ragdolls and blood effects and it looks like a real gem.

    If it has music as awesome as hotline does, then this will be a day 1 purchase for me

    The screenshot just reminds me of the opening shootout in John Woo's action masterpiece "Hard Boiled."
