  1. I freaking love Indie games they're often simple looking but so damn addicting.
    I've sunken so many hours in games such as Project Zomboid, They're Billions, Stronghold, Factorio, Subnautica, Mount and Blade, This War of Mine, Cuphead. Fuck so many great titles to mention.

  2. Miami Hotline will forever be my go-to for this sort of game. Trippy ass masterpiece

  3. Hard boiled is a Jon Wu movie you uncultured swines!

  4. Malmo you say, I think I know why they made a game about shooting up the loads of scumbags. Catharsis

  5. Controls are shit. Or I'm shit. I'm probably shit, but the aiming is very shit. I can see how a mouse would be so much better than a dual shock. I would not recommend it for PlayStation unless you have infinite patience.

  6. The next indie hit is Computer Virus Simulator. Go play it. Right now.

  7. I have Hard Boiled, Chow Yun Fat film

  8. Why would it be an indie sensation? I've seen flash games similar to this. It's not an innovative game, it borrows a majority of its mechanics from max pain, sunset miami, and a variety of other top down shooters. I just dont see anything special about this game, oh well.

  9. yeah, Hard Boiled is the name of the action film inspiring this game

  10. Guys? The expression, “Hard Boiled,” refers to the cult, Hong Kong, John Woo action movie, of the same name. And, THAT comes from the WELL KNOWN expression, “Hard Boiled,” which is a genre of tough-guy detective fiction, such as Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe stories. So, it’s a PERFECT expression and a canny nod to things that the type of fans they hope to draw in, will recognise. There’s a whole literature about, “Hard Boiled,” guys! Come ohhhn??? ?✌️

  11. This banned in Australia yet?

  12. I think endorsing Hong Kong massacres is a bad recipe for a game it might be banned

  13. Malmø is pronounced with oe at the end, Google translate does a decent job of pronouncing ø for future reference
    Great video as always keep it up

  14. Oh Cool … basically a Stranglehold sequel (which itself is a sequel of the movie Hard Boiled) done in top down format a la Miami Hotline.

    Nothing to do with actual eggs but one of the best Hong Kong action movies by one of the best Directors.

  15. Looks like Max Payne x Hotline Miami. I'm sold!

  20. Looks just like that game that got banned, the black and white one where you just go on a killing spree.

  21. To not understand the Hard boiled refrence is blasphemous

    Reply
  22. I like the one where you play as a mad man in a trench coat just going on a killing spree

    Think its called hatred

  23. Oh man, now i want to play strangle hold. Somebody get some white doves!

  24. "Hard Boiled" is a Hong Kong action movie. It's vintage bullet-storm action movie fare. Highly recommend.

  25. You really do not know what "Hardboied" by John Woo is? Please Google it..
