'Max: The Curse of Brotherhood' (ALL) Gets Xbox 360 Date

by Rainier on March 17, 2014 @ 2:12 p.m. PDT

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood mixes traditional Scandinavian storytelling with an inventive and colorful 2.5D platformer, combining classic jump and run gameplay with smart and innovative puzzles.

When Max wishes for his annoying little brother, Felix, to be whisked away by unknown evil forces, he gets more than he bargained for. Armed only with a marker and a hope of undoing what he has just done, he sets out on a perilous journey across deserts, eerie lantern-lit bogs, ancient temples and lush green forests to get his younger sibling back. Along the way Max gains and develops the power to manipulate the environment and overcome seemingly impossible obstacles.

Announced as an Xbox Live Arcade game on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood was released on Microsoft's  next-gen console in Dec. 2013, and next month finally coming to Xbox 360.

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 available for $14.99.
