Codex Gamicus

Maquette is an adventure indie puzzle game developed by Graceful Decay and published by Annapurna Interactive. It was released on Steam for Microsoft Windows on March 2, 2021.


This first-person recursive puzzle game that features a world where every building, plant, and object are simultaneously tiny and staggeringly huge. Maquette makes it possible by twisting the world into itself recursively in an MC Escher-esque fashion.

The player can head to the center of the world and they'll feel like a much bigger person, towering over buildings and walls. However, when they venture further out, they will start to feel small as things get larger and larger - to the point where cracks in the ground become chasms.

The player will explore the scales of everyday problems in a modern-day love story. Where sometimes the smallest of issues can become insurmountable obstacles.
