Maize, an absurdly corny game, is headed to Xbox One on September 12

The beautiful thing about gaming is that it can accommodate not only starkly serious stories, but also the wackiest ideas one could imagine. Maize, a game about sentient corn and a cantankerous Russian teddy bear, most definitely falls into the latter category, and it's coming to consoles.

Finish Line Games has announced that Maize will hit both Xbox One and PS4 on September 12, bringing with it a whole load of absurdity. Packed with secrets and environmental puzzles, Maize tasks players with figuring out just what the heck is going on in its world.

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.

Maize initially launched for PC on Steam in late 2016, and it has since gone on to receive a mostly positive reviews. If the game's silly premise has your interest piqued, Maize will hit Xbox One on September 12 for $19.99.
