Annapurna Interactive’s upcoming puzzle game Maquette will launch onto PlayStation Plus on March 2. Maquette takes place in a recursive world where players experience the life cycle of a loving relationship and features Golden Globe and Critics Choice Awards nominee Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World,” “The Help,” “As You Like It,” “The Village”) and Saturn Awards nominee Seth Gabel (“Fringe,” “Salem,” “Genius”, “Nip/Tuck”) as lead characters Kenzie and Michael. The game will also launch on March 2, 2021 for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 for $19.99.

Developed by Graceful Decay and published by Annapurna Interactive, Maquette is a first person recursive puzzle game filled with stunning environments and eye-opening moments, as well as an adventure of love, loss, and acceptance. Each chapter in this modern-day love story features unique interactive puzzles and invites players to navigate memories by exploring worlds-within-worlds filled with awe-inspiring architecture, influenced by the studio’s original home in San Francisco. The game’s unique use of a recursive environment and object size manipulation challenges players to use creative thinking in order to solve each MC Escher-esque puzzle.

Hanford Lemoore, Graceful Decay’s founder, first introduced Maquette’s original prototype at the 2011 Game Developers Conference and Experimental Gameplay Workshop, where it gained immediate praise and intrigue from developers and media.
