EASY INTERACTIVE ANNOUNCES MAX AND THE MAGIC MARKER COMING TO NINTENDO DS™ IN NORTH AMERICA

Minneapolis, MN – August 15, 2011 - Easy Interactive™ is pleased to announce that the award-winning indie hit, Max and the Magic Marker ™, is coming to Nintendo DS™ for Holiday 2011. The DS version of Max and the Magic Marker recreates all the action of the WiiWare and PC indie hit, and now brings the power of the all-important magic marker under control of the DS stylus.

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. The player controls Max, as well as the magic marker itself, as he hops and jumps through a series of levels using the marker’s fabulous powers to drawing objects directly onto the game world and solving a wide range of problems and puzzles in Max’s efforts to catch the monster he created using his magic marker.

Max and the Magic Marker features include:

  • Three stunning worlds
  • 15 challenging levels
  • Variety of challenges, secrets and rewards to unlock
  • Intuitive use of the DS stylus as the magic marker
  • Original soundtrack by Danish band Analogik
“Max and the Magic Marker is a beautifully imagined game and we’re thrilled to bring it to North American on Nintendo DS,” said Michel van Elmpt, Managing Director, Easy Interactive. “Its charming art style and gameplay that is both fun and rewarding make this a title that gamers of all ages can enjoy.  It has already proven itself to be incredibly successful across a number of platforms and we think the instinctive use of the DS stylus as the magic marker will spark the creativity of many gamers.”

Max and the Magic Marker for Nintendo DS is coming to North American retailers for Holiday 2011. For more information please visit www.maxandthemagicmarker.com,
