About this game
Developer: Finish Line Games
Content Rating: Teen
MAIZE is what happens when two scientists misinterpret a memo from the U.S. Government and end up creating, uh, sentient corn. And did we mention the angry condescending Russian robotic teddy bear or the unhinged albino corn stalk with an underbite? It’s a lot to take in. Locate and decipher clues while exploring an abandoned farm and a not-so-abandoned underground research facility. You may uncover a little something about yourself exploring the mysteries of MAIZE! Or not.

While certainly not the best adventure game I’ve played, there’s no doubting that Maize is filled with heart. The love that went into development shows throughout, and it’s why I found myself constantly laughing at all of the game’s silly jokes throughout. If you’re looking for three or four hours of laughs, and don’t mind some standard puzzle design, then you’ll find a lot to enjoy here.
Maize is a pretty rare kind of game. It is very unlikely it will reach cult status the way Deadly Premonition has, but this really is every bit as good and original. There is a good variety of puzzles and brain teasers to negotiate in this adventure - one of which is even a hilarious half-baked Dance Dance Revolution minigame that is under the pressure of a drone airstrike.
We wish we had more positive things to say about Maize, but unfortunately, it just doesn’t have much going for it. The story and writing are atrocious, the characters are forgettable, and the puzzles themselves are too easy. The game is honestly quite boring, despite its bizarre premise, and the attempts at humour are ham-fisted at best and excruciating at worst. If you’re after something different, Maize is certainly that, but be warned that it may leave a bad taste in your mouth.
