Many people don’t necessarily look for action, speed, fighting or combat in video games, but prefer to exercise their brains rather than agility. Of course, development studios also pay attention to their needs, so there are fundamentally challenging programs on various platforms. Recently, a new game called Maquette has been added to a group of such games.
Based on commercial advertisements, the software looks very promising because it brings beautiful visual effects, ethereal sounds, stunning atmosphere and huge puzzles.
We couldn’t even stand it, we bought it, and now we will tell you if it is worth it.
a good idea! This is the key to success in the field of video games in 2021. Among the many clones cloned on the built head, the unique fragments shone like diamonds surrounded by carbon. This is the strength of Maquette, because it is in a very unfamiliar world. We watch the protagonist from the inside, and the task is to take a walk in the city.
Our journey is hindered by obstacles, which can only be overcome by inserting surrounding objects into highly detailed models that reflect the surrounding environment. As a result, our environment has also changed.
So, for example, if we stand in front of a river without a bridge, but cross a toothpick over the river on the topographic surface, then a huge beam of light has appeared in the “real” world through which we can already be on the water Walked. The reverse is also true, that is, we can extract objects from the model and the objects remain the same size. So, for example, the bridge there might be a special key to open a special lock in the “real” world.
Therefore, the focus is on changing the size of the object and manipulating the world, which is a good idea, and it performs well. During the planning process, we encountered many problems and tasks, which must be solved in this way.Of course on top These examples are the simplest examples in our progress. The problems become more and more complex and more difficult. These problems can only be solved with the help of multi-stage, variable-size overlapping objects.
The frame story is also very interesting, because the calmness of the two protagonists is a symbol of city travel. With the continuous advancement of dialogue, subtitles, and information fragments, we have learned more details and the relationship between the two parties has become more subtle. At the end of the game, we feel like we have spent hours and days with previous acquaintances. Get along. The role shapers are Hollywood professional actors Bryce Dallas Howard and Seth Gabriel, in addition, they also form a real-life party. After that, it’s no surprise that they played the role in a completely real way. The story itself sometimes becomes plain and sometimes forced, and it’s not their fault.
Graphics, sound, mood
We do not deny that because of the visual world, we were the first to decide to invest in this project, and what we got was not disappointing. The model of the city and the fairy tale dreamland. It moves on the boundary between reality and imagination, ideally in mixed proportions. Many times, we felt like we participated in an interactive animation film like a character, and we were highly praised. We tried it on the PlayStation 5 console, but there is also a PlayStation 4 version.
The sound is also very good, the actors can add a lot of content to the speech experience. After that, it’s obviously not surprising that the atmosphere is great, and the surrounding environment will soon be attracted by vulnerable players. Logically, processing is based on the controller, and you can quickly enter the control. Unfortunately, the game cannot communicate in Hungarian, but if someone speaks English (or one of the other 16 supported languages), they will do well.
The price of Maquette is about HUF 6,000, considering all factors, we can say that it is very valuable.
That’s why we have to pay the price, we got an excellent family game, no blood, no action, no artificial excitement.
However, there are still many logic puzzles, which are shrouded in luxurious visual effects. We spent a few nights after get off work in his company and we have no regrets. For those who like unique, slightly slower, thought-provoking games, we can confidently recommend them. In addition to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, it also works on Windows.
