Good morr…hold on, we have to get in the mood for this game. Hold please.
Good morrow, good sir!
I hope you are having a bully day today. Is everyone having a bully day? Well, that’s just splendid. I must say the video game by the creators The Men Who Wear Many Hats’ (Organ Trail game) “Max Gentlemen” (CLICK FOR THE GAME) may have got me in a tizzy. It’s quite the way to go if you want to feel like a true gentlemen, especially for the lady-folk. Seriously, I’m sure if you and your lass play this video game your lass may turn into a lad, she will.
As “Max Gentlemen” goes, the objective is, as any good standing gentleman would know, is to collect hats. That’s right, hats. I may have to say that again: Max Gentlemen’s objective in most of these games is to go out there and collect as many hats as possible, beating your opponent. As of right now, there are two lads for the lads to choose, all of them have quite the splendid body. However, there are two packs available that will make your Gentlemen look as Gentlemenly as you…or look like Octodad, a lass mating with an octopus? What will they think of next?! Prohibition?! HUBHUBHUBHUBHUB!
It felt a little bit like WarioWare, where there is no real objective than the objective to gain more hats, and that is fine. But with that, I feel like this fits under the “Flappy Bird” category of games, but on a big scale. It’s one of those games where it’s very simple and very weird to play but you keep on playing it and you keep on liking this game. To me, that is all I want in my video games. I want to have fun. Max Gentlemen is just that, it’s a fun timewaster that I pop in and go crazy on for a few minutes, turn it off, do something, come back, do a few more minutes of Max Gentlemen, gather hats, make me look as dapper as I can be with multiple hats on my head (in real life, it’s pretty scary).
The only thing is, when I downloaded it all I get are two people and two places (a bar and on a stage coach) I don’t know what I was expecting, maybe more? I know there are packs for more stages and playing this game kind of wants me to buy these packs for obvious reasons (See: 1900s Octodad) but if I don’t want to buy it, I have to stick with going through Bronze, Silver and Gold classes collecting hat after hat after hat after hat and, honestly, that seems like the best that I can do.
If you have time on your hands and don’t know what to do, go to Steam or you mobile devices and download Max Gentlemen tonight.You won’t regret it one bit. If you do have a problem with this game, you deserve a harumph.
…Also the game was created due to male enhancement spam the creators got in their e-mail…no…seriously. (From: Kotaku)
“Max Gentlemen was first thought up as an afterthought to a spam email, for penis pills. We never read that email; instead we dreamt up the world of Max Gentlemen; A world of extreme victorian gents.”
“Max Gentlemen was a much larger game more akin to some sort of action-dating-sim. It was stupid. We dropped it. Then along came a Game Jam to make a drinking-themed game in one month for an arcade cabinet. We ran with one of our various mini-game ideas. The resulting game was met with much praise.”
“We brought the game to PAX East on a tiny arcade cabinet and once again, to our surprise, people loved it. They wanted to buy it. We decided we needed to give it our full attention. I thought it would take a month or two.”
“Many months later we ran a Kickstarter and raised 2,469% of our modest $500 goal. Sadly we did not reach our strech goal to make Max Gentlemen into a Victorian Style MMO. However, We did learn that the indie game body pillow market is a vast blue ocean of opportunity.”
“In the next few months we built a custom arcade cabinet and brought the game back to PAX East to showcase in the Indie Megabooth. Everyone there had a blast and reaffirmed our wavering spirits. The game was taking much longer than anticipated but had also grown into a handsome steroid-charged flower.”
“Now, Max Gentlemen is available to you.”
