Easy Interactive has today announced that it is due to release the retail versions of award-winning indie hit, Max and the Magic Marker, for Nintendo DS and Wii on the June 30th.
Max and the Magic Marker tells the story of Max, an adventurous young boy who receives a mysterious marker pen in the mail. Having played around with it, Max discovers that whatever he draws comes to life and, as such, the stage is set for a classic platform adventure romp.
The Nintendo DS version recreates the magic of the original WiiWare and PC indie hit, where the player will utilise the stylus which acts as your magic marker. In comparison, the Wii version adds an extra ‘tutorial’ mode that will provide tips and assistance to new players.
“We’re really excited to be able to bring Max and the Magic Marker to retail, especially considering its cult status online, its numerous awards and the very favourable review scores collated on Metacritic,” comments Michel van Elmpt, Managing Director of Easy Interactive. “It’s something of a departure from our usual, casual-focused catalogue, but we know that Max’s adventures have an appeal beyond the core fanbase it already has and our boxed release will undoubtedly see Max and the Magic Marker pick up an entirely new legion of fans.”
