Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

Max & The Magic Marker appeared on just about every system out there at the time: the Wii, PS3, Nintendo DS, PC, Mac, Windows Phone, iOS…

But not, oddly enough, the Xbox 360. So it may seem even more odd that its sequel, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, is an exclusive to Xbox Live Arcade.  It comes with a completely new visual style, too–everything is rendered in 3D, as opposed to the scribbly visuals of Magic Marker.

The new game begins when Max wishes for his brother Felix to go away, and ends up getting exactly what he wished for. Felix is kidnapped by dark forces, and of course, at that moment Max chooses to change his mind and go save his brother.

Check out the trailer for Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, coming this Spring.
