Hotline Miami is kind of a nonsensical story from the outset, but it does make more sense if you play through the game to the end. Your questions will be answered later on in a certain light. You'll find out things that you won't realize until the very end.

I really liked the game, but yeah, I didn't really "get it" either.

 

TxK is the game I don't really "get" right now...

You need to also find the letter in every level, which allows you to figure out the password on the computer at the end. Once you do that, you get a lengthy extended ending that sheds light on quite a bit.

If you want a real explination, you need to grab all the collectable letters (one in each level I think), then use them to solve the puzzle, which unlocks the secret ending.

As far as I remember:

 

Spoiler
The main story is equal parts social experiment and urban terrorism. In the alternate Miami the game takes place in, Russia is either in control of the city or wields heavy heavy influence. The murders you commit as the main character and the biker are social experiments arranged by a group of American "patriots" against the Russians, who wish to rid the city/country of the Russians

I think they mention that they plan to implement the manipulation of other individuals to attack the Russians on a country-wide scale, hinting at Hotline Miami 2.

Lastly, the scenes where you're in the grimy room with the three masked people are supposedly hallucintaions that take place whilst in the hospital.

I tried this at first. I tried to take Hotline Miami seriously and couldn't understand what in the world people saw in it. Then I picked it up again and just played it just because... Then it made sense. The magic of it is the simple fun madness of it. Dont try to get it... get it?
