Beautiful Puzzler Maquette Gets Release Date, Starring Bryce Dallas Howard

Must read


The beautiful puzzle game known as Model, which stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Seth Gabel, will be released on PS5, PS4, and PC on March 2, 2021. Developed by Graceful Decay and published by Annapurna Interactive, Maquette takes place in a recursive world where gamers experience the lifecycle of relationship and solve space puzzles as the story unfolds. “

Howard and Gabel will play the romantic couple Kenzie and Michael, and are characters who will guide players through the game but will not be “explicitly seen on screen.”Talk to THR, Howard explained that there was no villain in this game and that this story was more about two people who were together at one point in their lives and just moved on, having had a huge impact on the life of the other.

“This is a relationship that ultimately doesn’t work,” Howard said. “But it’s not a tragedy in any way, form or form. I think there’s something really nuanced about it that I really enjoyed.”

Kenzie is described by director Hanford Lemoore as a “San Francisco hipster”.

“He’s an interesting archetype, the hipster, and there’s that inherent sense of irony,” Howard added.Lemoore also shared how the idea for this game came about while exploring the architecture of his neighborhood in San Francisco about 10 years ago.

“Something made me try to do [a game] in 3D with physics, “Lemoore explained.” I thought about how physics is so chaotic; with physics simulation, you can hit an object and you know it’s going to fall, but you don’t know how it’s going to fall. I thought about the idea of ​​copying this really complex, almost random behavior, over multiple levels of recursion. “

As to why Howard chose to join the project, she described the Annapurna Interactive games as “real art” and is always drawn to choosing your own adventure opportunities.“I’ve always been drawn to choosing your own adventure opportunities. The opportunity to be active in storytelling and having your own ability to impact the end result – as a reader – was what I was drawn to. Howard concluded.
