n FEZ, you play as Gomez, a 2D creature living in what he believes is a 2D world, until a strange and powerful sentient artifact reveals to him the existence of a mysterious third dimension!
FEZ is a 2D platformer set in a 3D world. The world is 3D, but you always play from 2D perspectives. Each 3D world has 4 Sides. You can freely “rotate” your point of view in 90° increments between these 2D perspectives. This way, you will be able to navigate complex 3D environments, solve puzzles and find secrets!
What makes this game utterly compelling is its simplicity. No bosses, no conflicts and no penalties for dying. All you do is explore the vast universe Gomez is placed in. The controls are pretty basic; run, jump, lift, climb and the usual interactive controls for reading signs, talking to people et al.
Another feature is the auto save directive. Instead of you always having to hit a save button or some other long winded process, the game does that for you so don’t worry if you have to take a breather or live your life, you can always come back to the exact same spot you left it.
This is currently what I’m playing on the Xbox 360 and it is utterly brilliant by all standards. I suggest you get yourself a copy and join in on the fun. You can also check out the review below.
