Summary: Playing FEZ is as near as I believe I will ever get to reliving my first ever experience with a video game. That first experience is akin to a great epiphany. You never want this new feeling of wonder, awe, and imagination to ever leave you; you have to keep playing just one more level. FEZ brings the same sort of curious magic into an otherwise familiar world of 2D platforming and environmental puzzle-solving.
Summary: Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Look up any optical illusion on the internet and picture it within an interactive 3D space. This is a quintessential example of how Fez , The somewhat recent release on the Xbox Live Arcade, operates. You play a character named Gomez who from within the first fifteen minutes is endowed with a magical Fez (I just said the name of the game!).
Summary: Fez is one of the most definitive examples of ways that simplistic ideas can evolve into grandiose and complex journeys throughout the imagination. Throughout the course of the entire platformer, you'll spend most of your time rotating and shifting your view to reach new places and solve puzzles. Yet these moments will bring about some of the most fascinating and revelatory gaming experiences you've ever had, and it all begins with a little kid named Gomez.
Summary: Fez begins much like any other 2D platformer. The rules governing the game world are made clear to the player, who in turn learns the vocabulary quickly. One can only jump so far, green vines can be used to traverse a single wall, and falling too far will result in a respawn on the previous ledge. It is only when the protagonist Gomez dons the titular hat that the rules of platforming are almost completely negated.
Summary: More often than not, a game with a troubled development cycle is destined for mediocrity. Since its announcement nearly five years ago, "Fez" has gone through several iterations as its creator, Phil Fish, sought perfection from his deeply personal product. Despite its perpetually delayed release date, "Fez" has finally emerged as a beautifully crafted game that forces players to change their perspective uncovering the world's many mysteries.
