The Room Getting a Sequel, While Hotline Miami Targets Sony

Developers of 2012 favorites are quickly turning around sequels and ports. MORE, MORE, MORE!

If you’re anxious for more spooky puzzles, a sequel to The Room is on the way, and if you missed the hypnotic Hotline Miami on the PC, it's headed to PlayStation 3 and Vita.

Good news for two great indie games, so why not bunch ‘em in the same story?

Whatever you think of iOS games, Fireproof Games’ The Room is worth your time--it's smart and scary. I’ve been champing at the bit for any news on the sequel that's teased after you solve the game’s last puzzle.

The studio revealed a free update is coming for the original game in the summer, and will likely increase the tease factor tenfold. Then, this fall, a full-on sequel with a “new, more spectacular setting.”

Also, if you don’t own an Apple device, you’re in luck! It’s coming to Android by the end of the summer.

For Hotline Miami on Sony’s platforms, we’re also looking at a springtime release. Hotline Miami is being ported by Dutch developer Abstraction Games (responsible for ports of Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, and others). Original developer Dennaton Games is overlooking the port, but it’s already busy building a sequel (yes, already!). Additionally, Hotline Miami will be part of Sony’s pretty rad Cross-Buy program, which means buying one version gets you access to the other version.

I deleted The Room off my phone when I beat it. Time to download again, and beat it again

Would Hotline Miami work with a controller? Seems like that games needs a lot of speed.

I own an Apple device! It's just an iPhone 4 that i'm locked into two years for. That the game doesn't work on. Not their fault but, :/

Played it with a controller, works great. Lock-on helps.

Damn ... that might be the thing that pushes me into getting a Nexus 10 finally.

I played the entire game with the 360 controller. I actually preferred it to K/B&M.

Super pumped to be able to play this on the go and listen to some dope ass music. My morning commute is going to get a lot crazier.

More The Room! Finally get to use my ipad for something other than twitter, comicbooks and internet again.

Man Hotline Miami on the Vita might be pretty awesome. Especially since, you know, there's barely anything else to play on the Vita.

hotline miami was my favourite game of last year and I will play that shit on any fuckin platform

I like to imagine Patrick saying "champing at the bit" in a Chicago accent.

Stupid Windows Phone :(

I would like a PC version of the Room very much. The game won't run on my IPod, and I don't own an Android tablet either.

I wonder if Amazon still lets you emulate an Android device.

I will gladly play through Hotline Miami again on the PS3.

The Room on my iphone is pretty great. I'd like to play it on a bigger screen sometime. A sequel would be fantastic!

This. I hope somehow, somewhere, my save exists. Maybe it was backed up into iTunes. . .

Now I await The Room, and great news for Hotline Miami.

Posted by Strife777

I'm definitely going to play through Hotline Miami again on the Vita. Great move on their part.

When it comes to The Room, it's the only iOS game I've felt invested in since Game Dev Story.

YAY I could finally play Hotline Miami! Not sure how it will react on a controller though, it seemed necessary to have a mouse.

Posted by captainanderson

The Room for Android is good news, but what I really want is a PC port.

Man Hotline Miami on the Vita might be pretty awesome. Especially since, you know, there's barely anything else to play on the Vita.

Taking into account the PSP library, PS1 library, and actual Vita games. There's a hell of a lot to play.

On the Vita it could probably use one of the touch screens, but I could see dual stick shooter controls working quite well with the game. Not too fond of the right stick on the Vita though, so I hope that's not the only option they put in. This is definately something I'll buy for my Vita, even though I bought a copy on GOG at launch.

I played the whole game with a 360 gamepad. A real blast.

Good for Hotline Miami to get console support. I always thought that it should have to begin with.

Hotline Miami is still broken on the PC. Why is he working on a port of a broken game?

Can't wait to play the room, I've been interested since patrick posted that trailer way back when. I don't think I can afford or find too much interest in a hotline miami port either, since I'm so close to S ranking it on PC anyway.

I literally thought you were talking about the classic movie, "The Room", and was saddened when it wasn't :(

Hotline Miami is broken on the PC?

- 95% of the players of it

Time to take a trip to the Steam discussions page.

It's easy to be dismissive of folks having issues with a game that you're not having. I myself was like "Weird, none of these issues have effected me" but then I went to launch it about a month ago and got kicked to the desktop before I could yell "NO WAIT". Haven't been able to play since, even having gone through the 500+ comments in the support thread.

Edited by tclangham

@delorean99947: I used my 360 controller to play it on PC and it worked just fine.

Edited by ApexDefect

@sooty:Thats only if you have a desire to play PS1 and PSP games. Most of those games I don't have a desire to revisit. The majority of games that make me want a Vita are games like Hotline Miami that are getting ported or are cross platform, like Guacamelee and Soundshapes.

Over priced PSP games from PSN and old games from the 90's. Hot dam, it's time I buy myself a Vita!

This is literally all I cant think of whenever anyone mentions The Room.

Also, hadn't they planned to bring Hotline: Miami to Mac months ago? Is that still a thing that's happening?

Thank you for acknowledging Android.

Hotline Miami on Vita? That's fantastic news

Posted by BaconGames

Fuck yes, The Room was fantastic. Thinking about being in my dark bedroom at night playing through that was a highlight of this year for sure.

People have their tastes but when people say "there is nothing to play" on any platform really they are just baiting people. Even the WiiU, for how underwhelming and how much it's under performing sales wise, has a bunch of stuff to play on it.

Posted by PoisonJam7

I'm not sure I would call The Room "scary." But it was definitely good, and I look forward to a sequel.

Posted by Grimluck343

@msavo I'm not baiting anyone. There are very few games for the Vita that I am interested in playing. Hotline Miami would be one of the few.

I like that you referred to it as the classic movie.

You were playing The Room in a room? I know a dude who would totally like to hook you up.
