A #firstperson #adventure that revels in the absurd with the gleeful abandon of a platypus in a pool of pudding, Maize is available now on Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store with a 10% launch discount.
What do a Russian knockoff of an ‘80s toy, a hidden research facility, and talking stalks of corn have in common with one another? Erm, well, maybe you could play Maize, and let us know when you find out?
Watch the Maize launch trailer here:
Maize is super-immersive and brimming with visually dynamic interactivity. We’re not actually sure what that’s supposed to mean, but we’re pretty sure the game has it. After all, how many games have puzzles involving talking corn, coat racks, nuclear fuel rods, and uncomfortably fast coffee trolleys?
- Immerse yourself and explore Maize’s fully-realized environment,featuring a cornucopia of areas to explore (see what we did there?)
- Solve environmental puzzles that get more and more absurd the further you delve into the adventure
- Uncover the secrets of Maize’s world, as you try and figure out what it is the corn really want, aside from a very good nap
- Meet some friends and enemies along the way, which include a very small grumpy Russian robot bear and an unhinged corn stalk who’s a bit of a jerk
“As for LINUX support – the team is looking to support Linux in the future but for now, they’re focused on ensuring everyone who picks up MAIZE has the best experience possible.”
Developed using Unreal Engine 4, the chances are fairly good that we will see a Linux port. Consequently there is no expected arrival time, as the game just launched.
