The community's choosing Max: The Curse of Brotherhood dev's next game


Go vote now!

What’s next for Danish developer Press Play? Well, the studio doesn’t know. No one does, because that decision lies in your hands. That’s a lot of pressure, huh?

Press Play, developer of Xbox One launch title Max: The Curse of Brotherhoodand Kalimba, is turning to the community and a democratic process to decide what its next game will be. It has three games in mind, and you get to vote for whichever one sounds the best. Whatever has the most votes by September 1, Press Play will make it.

What’s more, the process doesn’t end there. Press Play says that after a game is selected, it’ll continue to work with the community to shape it. It’s kind of like Early Access or Kickstarter in some ways, except there’s no monetary barrier to entry. That’s easy to get behind.

So as to not mince words, we’ve copied the full description of each game below. Press Play’s site has all the finer details, including dedicated pages for each title with several explanation videos, features, concept art, and more. Go ahead and throw your vote behind whichever sounds best to you.

Project: Dwarka

Team up with a group of friends and become a band of legendary dwarven treasure hunters, exploring a procedurally generated underworld filled with gold and monstrosities. As dwarves, you are experts in underground survival and have the tools to overcome any obstacle in your way – be they bottomless pits, insurmountable walls, collapsed mines, flooded tunnels…or deadly monsters. Get the gold! Get out! Leave no dwarf behind!

Project: Karoo

A physics based multiplayer construction game set in an open world. Imagine a game where you got to play as an inventor who had the ability to construct any kind of vehicle. A game where you could travel far and wide in your inventions and bring back new parts and valuable items. Imagine the inventions were all subject to the laws of physics; if they collided with objects or the ground, they would split into a thousand pieces. Imagine a game world where new places were regularly discovered and ready to be explored. Imagine your friends could be there too.

Project: Knoxville

A 3rd person multiplayer action-survival game in which players must both work together and against each other. It is framed as a sadistic game show somewhat similar to the ones seen in The Hunger Games and The Running Man. But here’s the thing: All of the contestants can survive if they work together and don’t let greed or personal gain get the best of them. With this game we aim to go further than anyone else, when it comes to dynamic relationships and spectator interaction.
