Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is now available through Xbox Live Arcade and PC. The game is an homage to blockbuster films, comic book heroes, and action games with its focus on “relentless high-octane combat, exotic and danger-filled environments and epic set pieces.” Plus, it has its tongue placed firmly inside its cheek. Players take on the role of Marlow Briggs, a no-nonsense hero who has “never shied away from danger or trouble,” as he runs about Central America in a quest to defeat an industrial evil. To make matters worse – or more exciting, depending – he is bound to an ancient Mayan Death Mask sidekick “who’s had no-one to talk to for 2000 years.” Awesome. Developed by Zootfly, Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is available now for £9.99. Launch trailer is below.
