Fez Released


Fez, the winner of this year’s IGF Grand Prize Award, is a non-linear puzzle platformer pixelart hybrid with some 3D voxel elements. Play as Gomez, a 2D creature on a voyage of discovery into the mysterious 3rd dimension. Change your perspective and look at the world in a different way.

Released by Polytron, Fez is on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 MSP! The art is unique and the game seems fun and addictive. Screenshots, trailer and more info can be found on the Polytron site HERE and some more info can be found on TIG Source HERE. Game features a good soundtrack by Rich “Disasterpeace” Vreeland. 

* Fez was released in April and as usual the PJ staff waited forever to post

its basically the same indie game that has been done for the last 5 years. there is absolutely nothing new or interesting on it.

 Best ten dollars I've spent in quite a while. This game is definitely a masterpiece.

 I've beaten the game with friends. The game allows for a whole lot of puzzle solving in and outside of the game (like the language and number system gahh). It is really very well designed.

 Did you make it past the village? 

This game is amazing in every respect. Intelligent level design and puzzles, amazing graphics, obviously, and an amazing soundtrack to boot. Couldn't ask for more in a puzzle platformer.

The game is awesome. Consider it a testimonial, but it reminds me of Portal in the sense that it's a world that has it's own set of rules that you must learn to abide by. Pretty fun to play. Intellectually stimulating somewhat.

Fez is pretty dull and boring gameplay wise, but the graphics are purty

 Good soundtrack might be an understatement. To me it's a masterpiece! :)

 Do you guys have any idea if it will come out for PC?
