Maize is a first person adventure game about sentient corn, and the scientists who developed them. Game starts off strong dropping you in the middle of a mysterious farm with just hints as to what lies beneath the surface. As you venture into the research facility, the story focuses more on the scientist’s overly dramatic relationship with each, rather than the how or why of the whole situation, so expect to read a lot of dialog on post-it notes from these two. Because you are a silent protagonist, much of the backstory is told through post-it notes, the quest items themselves, the set pieces, and even the item-hunt collectibles placed randomly throughout the game. Maize has a ridiculously fun and silly concept, and it’s definitely a game that doesn’t take itself seriously. The game's ridiculousness is the game's greatest strength.
