The debut release of Gamerâ€™s Edition’s Hotline Miami titles has proved popular by surpassing its funding goal. With production now guaranteed, and in response to a rush of late orders, Gamerâ€™s Edition and Devolver Digital have agreed to keep the campaign running for an additional two weeks, enabling more players to get their hands on this one-time-only collectible. Players yet to commit to the awesomeness of this edition now have until midnight BST on Wednesday 22nd of April to purchase on gamersedition.com.
â€œWeâ€™re delighted to see how well Gamerâ€™s Edition has been receivedâ€, said Jon Hicks, Head of Gamerâ€™s Edition. â€œWeâ€™ve had a very enthusiastic response from developers and players, nearly all of whom understood why we werenâ€™t basing it on Midnight Animal cosplay, and the support for our Hotline Miami bundle has been accompanied by many suggestions for upcoming releases. Weâ€™ve been listening to feedback and updating the site throughout the campaign, and Iâ€™m very pleased weâ€™ve been able to add another couple of weeks to get everybody on board before we start manufactureâ€.
The Hotline Miami Gamerâ€™s Edition, which retails for retails for $60 (roughly Â£40), has been produced to the exact specification of series creator Dennaton Games, which is producing the custom designs for the packaging, collectible cameo cards, art card and stencil. Dennaton will receive a cut of every unit sold.
Hereâ€™s whatâ€™s in the box:
- Includes both games on DVD for the first time, presented in custom DVD packaging
- Steam keys for both games
- C90 soundtrack mixtape, comic
- cameo trading cards
Described as â€œincredibly awesomeâ€ by Destructoid commenters and â€œunholyâ€ by Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker, the Hotline Miami Gamerâ€™s Edition funding runs until 22nd April at midnight BST (4PM PDT/7PM EDT).
