Maize is a first-person adventure game about what happens when two scientists misinterpret a memo from the U.S. Government and create sentient corn. And that last sentence is pretty much the least ridiculous thing about the game.

Maize Original Soundtrack available now!



We had a blast developing Maize, and one of our favourite parts of that experience was creating the music. We worked with our friends at The Eggplant Collective, who did an outstanding job crafting a score that perfectly complemented our game, along with a couple of singles that we still can't get out of our head.

And, to our excitement, you guys are enjoying the soundtrack as much as we are! We've fielded many requests from people asking if they can buy the soundtrack.

Well, starting today, you can, because the Maize Original Soundtrack is now available on Steam!

We hope you enjoy it, and that you get minimal stares when you start humming the "Top Secret" lyrics on your commute!

You can now play Maize with a controller!

Hey everyone! Maize's first update is upon us! And we're very happy to report that you can now play Maize with a controller!

Partial Xbox Controller support has been added to the game, along with a few other adjustements. You still need to use the mouse to navigate Maize's menus, but the game itself is fully controller-ready now.



On top of that, we've added some controls options for both Mouse/Keyboard and Controller setups. On the mouse side, you can invert your mouse Y-axis, adjust sensitivity and smoothing. For the controller, you can adjust look sensitivity and invert the Y-axis.

Along with this, we've listened to your feedback and lowered the motion blur effect, and we're also investigating a way to adjust that easily with a slider in the menu screen. For now, we've posted a workaround in our Steam Forum that will specifically adjust it.

We wanted to get this update to you as quickly as we could, so we don't have a Controls Screen implemented yet. Because of this, we're posting the game controls below. The gamepad Controls Screen should be in the next update.

Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for all the kind words of support! We're really happy that so many people are enjoying the silly game we made.

Right Stick: Look
Left Trigger: Sprint

About This Game

Maize is a first-person adventure game about what happens when two scientists misinterpret a memo from the U.S. Government and create sentient corn. And that last sentence is pretty much the least ridiculous thing about the game.

Explore an abandoned farm and a not-so-abandoned underground research facility as you uncover the mysteries around Maize, and possibly learn a bit about yourself along the way. Or maybe not.

With a colourful cast of characters and an absolutely absurd world, Maize offers up a unique experience that keeps the surprises coming. Seriously, they’re everywhere.

Features

  • Immerse yourself and explore Maize’s fully-realized environment,featuring a cornucopia of areas to explore (see what we did there?)
  • Solve environmental puzzles that get more and more absurd the further you delve into the adventure
  • Uncover the secrets of Maize’s world, as you try and figure out what it is the corn really want, aside from a very good nap
  • Meet some friends and enemies along the way, which include a very small grumpy Russian robot bear and an unhinged corn stalk who’s a bit of a jerk
