Five minutes of Fez

fez - playwisegaming.comFez” sports creative puzzle-platforming with a 2-D plane-swapping action a la “Super Paper Mario.” It’s difficult to describe that 2-D/3-D plane-switching ability without seeing it, but luckily the game’s developer, Polytron, has provided us with a beefy, five-minute trailer full of gameplay, which you can find after the jump.

“Fez”  has been in development for a purported 15 years according to the official site, which may or may not be true… It was unveiled in 2008, which was the year it won “Excellence in Visual Art” at the Independent Games Festival. We’ve been watching it with a fiery passion since then; it has been quite a journey.

PlayWISE was finally lucky enough to get a hands-on with the game at PAX East 2011 last week, and it was definitely worth the wait. Bursting at the seems with charm and innovation, “Fez” is every indie lover’s dream.

This video is more or less the demo that was at PAX, which is relatively early on in the game. As of now, all that has been revealed is the flipping-planes mechanic and some item scavenging that entails collecting eight pieces, or bits, of a cube.

A big part of the game’s exploration is flipping the plane in order to reach new heights and previously inaccessible locations. Once all eight bits of a cube are assembled, new pathways will unlock.

The game is currently set for a 2011 Xbox Live Arcade release, but it has missed several of its past release dates. Hopefully, this date is a little more solid than the previous few.

    It’s true, not all gold IRA accounts are created equally. Retirement Savings are created equally. Some investments are not permissibly in a gold backed IRA. The account reps in this site I located are awesome.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
