Ever wondered what a simple platformer would look like if it had a kind of Crayon Physics-style gameplay attached to it?

Max & the Magic Marker appears to be just that. Coming soon to WiiWare, players use the Wii remote to pause time and draw shapes on the screen to solve puzzles. These shapes can be used to dodge obstacles, reach ledges et al.

Looking pretty fantastic. One to stick in the calendar, me thinks.
