Mar 3, 2021I was really hoping to be wowed by Maquette, but my time spent with it was not the magical, romantic experience I was hoping for. The bugs, overall wonkiness, and lame puzzle design annoyed me to no end. Especially when it would punish me by making me start a chapter over because it had broken itself. As a result, my already low tolerance of the love story between Michael and Kenzie grew to the point where I couldn't stand the couple. I would actively cheer when things went wrong because I didn't like them. The game seemingly wants you to feel like their relationship is one for the ages, but it just felt like a couple who had issues after the honeymoon period was over. It's a tale as old as time, but not one worth basing a game on.

Mar 8, 2021But by the end, Maquette had thoroughly rinsed both its gimmick and its story. Much like Michael and Kenzie's relationship, it started off good, but wore me down as time went on. A far cry from Season 6 of Married At First Sight: Australia.

Your movement speed is so insanely slow I just jumped everywhere to get it over fasterThis is the biggest waste of time I played all year. Your movement speed is so insanely slow I just jumped everywhere to get it over faster and the game requires you to run multiple laps around the map while you're shrunk down and move even slower.
Should've been just a walking sim, the art style is nice, the story is ok, but the gameplay is a chore.… Full Review »

Apr 11, 2021Maquette is the century's least-interesting love story told through a very, very rough-around-the-edges puzzle game. I would only recommendMaquette is the century's least-interesting love story told through a very, very rough-around-the-edges puzzle game. I would only recommend this game to someone who is trapped on a desert island (and needs to work up the courage to kill themselves).… Full Review »
