Max Gentlemen is an "arcade-style extreme manners simulator about stacking hats, inspired by a spam email". Play as Victorian-era lords and ladies as they flex their muscles and collect hats. Move your cursor up and down the growing tower of hats and jump to avoid collision with birds, darts, and other obstacles.
Max Gentlemen is a product of The Men Who Wear Many Hats, the indie team that previously brought us Organ Trail, a zombie variation on the classic edutainment title, Oregon Trail. I backed both games on Kickstarter and was eager to get my hands on this latest title. Unfortunately, it's not doing as well as its predecessor, as Ryan Wiemeyer details in this interview.
