Maquette Review

Maquette is a puzzle game played in a series of nested identical worlds. What you do in the larger world effects things in the smaller one, and so on. Every building, plant, and object are simultaneously tiny and staggeringly huge.

You solve puzzles and make your way through the worlds by manipulating items in the different nested realms. Maybe there's a cube that's too large to lift in the middle world. No problem, just head into the small world to move it out the way.

Beyond the novel puzzles and mind stretching iterative interactions, it's a beautifully realised world that explores a story of modern-day love where sometimes the smallest of issues can become insurmountable obstacles.
