Press Play, the developer of titles such as “Max and the Magic Marker” (WiiWare, iOS, PC and Mac) and Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin (iOS and Windows Phone), has announced today an Xbox LIVE Arcade game titled “Max: The Curse of Brotherhood”.
This new title mixes traditional Scandinavian storytelling with an inventive and colorful 2.5D platformer, combining classic jump and run gameplay with smart and innovative puzzles. By using the forces of nature, Max can create impressive pillars of earth, powerful streams of water and other elements with his magic marker Max. He must use them to travel through the elaborate cave systems, forests and gloomy castles of Anotherland to save his brother.
The game is built on foundations of Max & the Magic Marker but is more of a reboot than a traditional sequel. Max is still the star but this game is not aimed only at children. The target audience is broader and the core mechanic – the marker – has been refined greatly.
Max: The Curse of Brotherhood will be showcased for the first time on this year’s PAX East 2013 show in Boston. Here players and press alike will get a taste of the great adventure and a chance to sample what will undoubtedly be one of this year’s most exciting Xbox LIVE Arcade games.
The game is scheduled for release this spring on XBLA.
