The Pixar-Like Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Is Finally Coming to PS4

Makes the Leap to PS4 on November 10th

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is no longer an Xbox One and Windows exclusive. The cutesy platformer has been confirmed for a PS4 release on November 10th.

For those that aren’t familiar, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is a cinematic, Pixar-like 2.5D platformer starring Max, who gets sucked into a mysterious world where his brother has been taken. Through the means of a magic marker, Max can manipulate the world to raise platforms, create vines, and make bridges; all the while jumping, running, and putting an end to the evil lord Mustacho.

It’s been quite the journey getting Max: The Curse of Brotherhood on PS4. It was originally released in December 2013 for the Xbox One and PC by Press Play studios and it was received decently well by critics. Microsoft, however, didn’t see the point in keeping Press Play around and sadly, closed the studio in 2016. The team went on to create Flashbulb Games in April 2016, a new studio that owns the rights to their games, including Max: The Curse of Brotherhood. They also put out Kalimba and Max and the Magic Marker, a mobile predecessor. By working with indie publisher Wired Productions, the team was finally able to port the game to Sony’s console.

Here are a few more features of the game:

  • Embark on this classic tale of brotherhood to rescue Max’s kid brother Felix from the grasps of the evil lord Mustacho
  • Explore a world filled to the brim with challenging physics puzzles and frantic platforming
  • Climb, fight and draw their way through deserts, lantern-lit bogs, ancient temples and lush-green-forests
  • Raise great pillars of dirt from the ground to reach new heights, grow trees to make bridges and create swinging vines to cross gaping chasms

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood will cost $19.99 and can be picked up digitally or physically.
