Cult Indie Hit Coming to DS™ and Wii™ In June

De Meern, Netherlands– Easy Interactive™ is pleased to announce that it will be releasing retail versions of the award-winning indie hit, Max and the Magic Marker, for Nintendo DS™ and Nintendo Wii™ on the 30th June 2011.

Max and the Magic Marker tells the story of Max, an adventurous young boy who receives a mysterious marker pen in the mail. Playing around with it, he discovers that whatever he draws comes to life and the stage is set for a classic platform adventure romp where the player controls Max, as he hops and jumps through a series of levels, as well as the magic marker itself, using its fabulous powers to help Max by drawing directly onto the game world and solving a wide range of problems and puzzles in the process.

The DS version of Max and the Magic Marker recreates all the action of the WiiWare and PC indie hit, and brings the all-important magic marker under the control of the stylus. The Wii version adds an extra‘tutorial’ mode to provide tips and help for new players.

Easy Interactive managing director, Michel van Elmpt comments,“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.” She continues,“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.”
