Like the look and feel of Hotline Miami but not a fan of the ultra-violent brutality in the game? Good news: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will feature a level editor, allowing players to express themselves in ... shall we say more constructive ways.

Users will be able to use the level editor to generate and customize just about everything but the kitchen sink and - oh wait, they've got that too. Nevermind. Furniture, decor, color palettes, weapons and enemies can all be placed exactly where you want them, then shared with other players. In other words, with the introduction of a level editor, you can just be an accessory to murder instead of the actual murderer. That'll ease your conscience, right?

The editor's already getting love from publisher Devolver Digital. CFO Fork Parker has created what he calls the "Fork Parker's Mansion of Pain," according to a related press release. "One room is just seven dogs and a dude with an Uzi. Good luck, nerds," Parker said.

Playable at E3 2014 by appointment only, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will launch later this year on PC, PlayStation 4®, PlayStation 3® and PlayStation Vita™.

"After intense negotiations Dennaton Games has agreed to let me create a level called Fork Parker's Mansion of Pain using the new Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number level editor," said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. "One room is just seven dogs and a dude with an Uzi. Good luck, nerds."
