For all Wes Anderson‘s fans out there, good news for you. Some students at New York University‘s Game Center just released a video game called Maquisard, which inspired by Wes Anderson‘s blockbuster movie ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel‘. This game categorized as a single-player investigation game that will leave you snooping around the hotel as the Maquisard Hotel’s lobby boy. At first, you will be given clues from the resistance about the identity of the target and from there the player’s task would be all about eavesdropping on conversations, peeking into the guest rooms, and inspecting the guests’ habits in order to resolve all the peculiarity of their target.
The story and the setting are quite similar to the film with all the pastel-ish aesthetic and tiny bits of Wes Anderson‘s meticulous attention to details. Maquisard also got an Official Selection for the International Festival of Independent Games – IndieCade Showcase @ E3 2015 in Los Angeles. The game is available for free here, but if you think it deserves a plenty of support, you can help them by purchasing the game.
