So you will have probably seen that Hotline Miami  2 has been refused classification in Australia. One Reddit user sent an email to the developers to see if there was any legal way for him to acquire the game. Jonatan Söderströmm sent an email back saying “If it ends up not being released in Australia, just pirate it after release. No need to send us any money, just enjoy the game!”

Ars Technica have confirmed with Devolver representatives that the email is real. Unfortunately it also looks like they won’t be contesting the boards decision so it is likely we will have to pirate the game if we want a copy. If that doesn’t sit well with your conscience you could always purchase the original or Luftrausers.

I sure am glad that there is a board out there that has decided I too incompetent to make decisions for myself.
