Max & the Magic Marker: Gold Edition Coming to the PSN


Yes, this is a video for the Wii version of the game, but that is all we have right now. The PSN version will be better!

“PAN Vision and Press Play today announced that Max & the Magic Marker: Gold Edition will be coming to the PlayStation Network this Fall to European and US audiences. An artful platform game set in a world of drawings, Max & the Magic Marker: Gold Edition will offer the same award-winning gameplay that made it a blockbuster success on the PC, Mac, WiiWare™ and iOS, but updated for PSN with high definition graphics and support for Sony’s PlayStation Move™ motion controller.”

Max & the Magic Marker: Gold Edition immerses players in a world where doodles and drawings come to life. Players must help Max run and jump through levels, overcome obstacles, solve puzzles, and defeat enemies – all while using the freehand drawing gameplay to outthink and outdraw even the hardest of challenges. Grounded in realistic physics, the ability to draw almost any object or tool allows players to stretch their imaginations. From make-shift shelters, to stairs, bridges, catapults and even hot air balloons, nothing is impossible!

Features of Max & the Magic Marker: Gold Edition include:
• 58 inventive and puzzling levels to scribble your way through
• 3 immersive cartoon worlds inspired by children’s drawings
• Dynamic drawing capabilities with realistic physics
• Death traps, monsters, and challenging puzzles
• Unlockable challenges, secrets, and rewards to discover and achieve
• High definition graphics in 1080p
• Compatible with Sony’s PlayStation Move controller

Well-received and reviewed since it first hit the market, Max & the Magic Marker has received a multitude of awards including “Best Overall Game” from the Unity Wards, and the “Innovative Game Design” award from the EIGA (European Innovative Games Award). It was also winner of the Direct2Drive Vision Award during the 2010 Independent Games Festival, held in San Francisco, California, and was widely panned by critics as one of the best games of 2010.

    Interesting. Liked the Wiiware version start to finish so this would be nice to play again with trophy support. Glad to hear it uses Move since using the Dual Analog to draw would be too slow.

    those kind of game are fun on pc, but from my experience with the wii i’ll suck at it. Though I consider myself to draw fairly good (otherwise i’d probably be in the wrong profession) I’m completely incompetent when it comes to using pointing at things with a wiimote ;p

    @Pedro: It’s not hard at all. Never had a problem making the shape, line or stair I wanted from start to finish.
