Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is a story about a young boy named Max who wishes his younger brother Felix to be taken away, much like Sarah wishing for her little brother Toby to be taken away in The Labyrinth. The game is a spiritual successor to the original game, Max and the Magic Marker, both of which are developed by talented developer Press Play, who are based out of Copenhagen.
As he embarks on a journey to save his brother Felix, Max is armed with only his magical marker, which allows you to directly manipulate the areas you trek through. You’ll be able to simply will things into existence by drawing them with the marker, like a tree, which can be used to cross otherwise impossible gaps.

The game was originally set for release on Xbox 360 this past Spring, but saw delays after it was confirmed for Xbox One.
Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is out now on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One for $14.99.
