What actually happens in Hotline Miami? Here is an attempt to discuss that, which I made in Twine. Because choices and subjective experiences are such an important part of Hotline Miami’s story and interpretation, I thought it might be fun to write a long essay that readers could explore according to their own desires and interests. Twine also has useful features for allowing me to insert short and long side discussions at the point where they apply, without having to break the flow of an idea. I have no idea if this worked, but this was the idea. Those who still wish to read in a more traditional essay format can find the major topics of “Reality is Chosen” in the form of more whole essays under the menu heading “Conventional Format.” Have fun; I’ll probably rework this to make it better, and hopefully incorporate more dialogue with new critical pieces.
