Being download-only, it's a pity that Fez can't somehow come packed with its most essential peripherals: a notepad and pen. Beneath this indie platformer's cutesy-yet-stylish pixel art candied coating is a tantalisingly, fascinatingly arcane game packed with codes and ciphers and secrets.
It was barely an hour before I started jotting down notes and reminders. It was considerably longer, in some cases, before I knew precisely what for. I took screenshots, too, but that's too easy ink soaking into vellum was needed here, to thoroughly imprint Fez's alien languages and mysterious iconography into my brain.'A fascinatingly arcane game packed with codes and ciphers and secrets'
Initially Fez seems an altogether less taxing game: the archetypal indie-platformer-with-a-gimmick. Protagonist Gomez is a 2D sprite in a 2D world, until he's suddenly confronted with the presence of the third dimension. Well, sort of.
