Edit
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. 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.

Maize.....Well, My memory about how I first know this game is vivid at best. I recall about seeing this game trailer back in 2015 or so. And remember got this game around 2017 and just kinda let it sitting there up until recently.
The very reason I let this game "sitting" for a long time, mainly because the impression on this game to be sort of 1st person puzzle game. Which I did speculate that I may need a time and certain kind of mood to get into this game. And so I played this game and I've got to say it does surprising me in both good and bad way in a way.
Maize is a simple 1st person Puzzle game, You walking around, You picking up items you put those items into a specific placement and voila, Puzzle solved, No biggy or any neuron fiber require to play this game. And if I may added, The puzzle element on this game would be something I consider simpler at best. Since there are a convenient plot point which would never let you wandering around too far, confused about how to solving the puzzle. Some would say this is bad, Some would even asked on why do you even want to buy this game at all?
Well, Surprisingly enough, For story.
Yes Story, This game main fort'e apparently, Its all onto the story, Which mean, If you did considering on buying this game. You don't buy it for puzzle elements but the story.
I woudn't really want to spoiled you since the story does feel very unique in its own way, But its about Sentient talking corns, Sentient grumpy talking teddy bear and incompetents work place with tantrum amount of funds. Try for yourself
Also the graphic are nice, This is Unreal Engine game, So the spec req for the game is not something to squinting about. But you might saw alot of low res texture popping around here and there (Try turning off V-Sync, That's very helpful in my case)
Also, You'll want to get this game as cheap as possible, Its too short and too lesser in many way, But it is still a good experience that you'll want to giving it a go.

Bought 5 years ago, found recently. The title is too plain to notice.
A walking simulator without much of the story (at least in my 3-hour gameplay). It begins at a maize field, a maze but not difficult to find the way, some roads are blocked until essential items are picked up. A house, a water tower and a barn are to be explored, with random items collected: Broom, fake hand, CD disc, a crate... quite a lot of things to get the puzzle solved. The puzzles are not hard, finding the item and remembering the way can. It is not like regular click and point games out there, the atmosphere tells me something is going to happen, yet not.
That underground lab is mysterious, then the game becomes more unexpected- collect even more bizarre and suspicious parts including a nuclear fuel rod, then assemble a companion bear to follow you around. Those sticky notes with (funny) insulting words can be hilarious, yet unable to see the main story can be disappointing. In addition, activate switches not knowing the function, this is a game about a lonely man walking in a large, empty space, not knowing where, what, or why.
I stopped After going back to the maize field, and saw Teddy drove the tractor into the river. Had some fun, but not enough to keep me playing.

Strange first person walking sim/adventure game where you explore a farm and discover what happened there. Funny and has a fantastic theme song.
