Kenzie Michael and Kenzie Michael are two artists who were in love…and later broke together. As time passes, Michael redefines his relationship with Kenzie, and the player travels through the past together, creating scenes of the characters’ lives that create the story of separation, love, and the acceptance of loss.
The player is seated in front of a layout made up of several structures, with an identical layout that is smaller within than the other, and another smaller one in the other, and so on. The same is true in the opposite direction. We’re not just in front of a layout but also in a massive layout. This also happens to be within a massive layout, extending to the infinity limit. There are three or two each to work with; however, the size is staggering.
The game lets you play as Gulliver and Gulliver, who pushes over walls and climbs structures, Lilliput, who believes every step is an insurmountable hurdle. This is awesome.
It is possible to stay in a few episodes of Maquette, but. In some instances, the game does not give any clues regarding which direction to follow, so you’re forced to wander through the scene trying to connect with everything around you. This can be particularly frustrating in the “giant” world in which distances are vast.
I’m not sure.
However, it did not keep me from admiring the scene’s beauty. Maquette looks gorgeous and captivating in every aspect. It blends traditional American houses with temples of the oriental, and in the final scene in which the world began to fade as it cracked and shattered, I was uneasy with the starkness.
In the end, I can’t help mentioning the game’s soundtrack. Certain tracks have made me want to add the tracks to my playlists as they’re just that excellent. It’s important to note that the song will cease playing when you hit an invisible trigger. So if you enjoy a song and want to hear it throughout it, be patient.
Maquette is an enjoyable game that entices you not only by its challenges but by its narrative. It is quick and gives you pleasant feelings. If you’re looking to do something completely new in the genre of puzzles with an unheard-of concept, it could be what you’re looking to find.
