QuickFacts

Critics Consensus: Maquette is a fascinating puzzle game with a unique mechanic and gorgeous setting, but the execution just isn’t there. Puzzles are fairly simple to solve, and it fails to push the boundaries of its own recursive concept.

Game Info

GAME INFO

MAQUETTE is a first-person recursive puzzle game that takes you into a world where every building, plant, and object are simultaneously tiny and staggeringly huge. MAQUETTE makes it possible by twisting the world into itself recursively in an MC Escher-esque fashion. Head to the center of the world and you’ll feel like a giant, towering over buildings and walls. But venture further out, and start to feel small as things get larger and larger – to the point where cracks in the ground become chasms. In Maquette you will explore the scales of everyday [problems in a modern-day love story. Where sometimes the smallest of issues can become insurmountable obstacles.

Maquette is a fascinating puzzle game with a unique mechanic and gorgeous setting, but the execution just isn't there. Puzzles are fairly simple to solve, and it fails to push the boundaries of its own recursive concept.

Tom Marks (IGN)

7/10

“Maquette is an incredibly clever and absolutely gorgeous first-person puzzle game, even if it doesn’t really push the boundaries of its own recursive concept in any particularly surprising ways. That left me feeling like its straightforward story and puzzles were a missed opportunity to do something more, but playing through Maquette’s brief adventure was at least a lovely, mind-tickling evening well spent.”

7/10

“A love story told through a first person puzzle game that delights in playing with scale and recursive environments, even if its conundrums eventually feel a little undercooked.”

7.8/10

“When Maquette is firing on all cylinders, it is a beautiful journey through a series of ever-larger environments, and Maquette’s love story is poignant and a little heartbreaking. Sadly, my interactions with the puzzles were also full of heartbreak. While Maquette has some missteps, I look back fondly on my time with it. Much like a real-life romance, my affection for this game is complicated.”
