Max Brings His Magic Marker to PS3 With Move Support


Indie sensation Max & the Magic Marker, previously released to tremendous success on WiiWare, iOS, PC and Mac, is now drawing its way onto PS3.

Max & the Magic Marker: Gold Edition, an enhanced version of Press Play’s artfully crafted 2D Platformer, will land on the PlayStation Network store this fall in Europe and North America for only $9.99 USD / €9.99 EUR.

Players will help Max doodle his way through 58 puzzle-filled levels, now displayed in gorgeous 1080p, using the PlayStation Move motion controller in tandem with the game’s freehand drawing mechanic to freely sketch out objects and tools to help overcome confounding puzzles and dangerous enemies.

Here is a full list of features to expect:

– PSN exclusive: Full HD graphics using the power of the PlayStation 3
– PSN exclusive: PlayStation Move support as well as DUALSHOCK 3
– PSN exclusive: Challenging boss fights
– 58 inventive and puzzling levels.
– Unique drawing control in a truly dynamic environment
– 3 beautiful worlds inspired by children’s drawings
– Death traps, monsters and challenging puzzles
– Unlockable challenges, secrets and rewards

A web browser demo is available at the Max & the Magic Marker website, should you like to get an idea of how it plays, minus motion control of course.

Oh, and here are some pretty pictures of the updated HD graphics, including a great shot of Max looking all ‘Johnny cool guy’ with a Move in his hand!
