Max Gentlemen was inspired by a spam email for penis pills. Yup, that's according to the developer Holmes interviewed at PAX in the video here. It was then created in a drinking game jam, and brought around to some shows like PAX East.
The point of the game is to stacks hats with one or two players, drink beer, and avoid the debris flying around the level from the crazy bar fight happening in the background. Simple, silly, but most of all, super fun.
Max Gentlemen will be out this month for free on iOS, Android, and Steam, and there will be special characters you can purchase to help support the developers.
