Microsoft purchases Press Play, creators of Max & the Magic Marker

Today has been filled with product announcements, but one announcement may have slipped your radar. At E3 Microsoft announced that they have purchased Press Play, the independent developers behind Max & the Magic Marker and Tentacles. Both of those games have been made into Xbox Live titles and are fan favorites.

We don’t have any specific numbers for how much Microsoft paid in the deal, but Press Play has stated they expect the deal to allow them greater creative freedom with more resources. We are excited for more great stuff from Press Play in the future.
