FEZ – Game Review


Our Comments –

As an aspiring Game Designer, I have been studying game’s and looking at all aspects of games that are out in the market. After watching recent documentaries on independent Game Designers, I came across a game called Fez. This game was made by Polygram Corporation and took several years to make due to the constant perfection of a few designers on the project. Recently I purchased this game 1 so I can support the independent artists and 2 because it looked very interesting and worth the money to try it out.

When trying the game out I noticed a lot of great plat forming scenarios that I think will take Super Mario Brothers out of the water for platforming games. This new age of independent artists being able to release their own games through the Steam network has really shaped the industry on several games that can now be shown to the public. This is great because now there is not a tap on what games can come out and general gamers can now see the artistic side to these great designers.

Fez is an amazing aesthetic game that puts you back in the 16-bit world of games with a touch of 3d. The designer named Phil Fish really put this game in a new aspect of 2d games. When running around being Gomez you think you are working in a 2d area then when you press the left 1 or right 1 button you are turning the world and seeing an amazing 3d world. Now, those buttons pressed are on a PlayStation so follow the direction per platform. I just want to say that is a great game and hope everyone tries this out to see that the creators at Polygram created. The Designer Phil Fish is no longer in the gaming but sure wish he was to see what more he would do.

Fez won several awards, including the 2012 Independent Games Festival’s Grand Prize, 2011 Indiecade’s Best in Show and Best Story/World Design, and 2008 Independent Games Festival’s Excellence in Visual Art. It was Eurogamer’s 2012 Game of the Year. Fez had sold one million copies by the end of 2013. A sequel was planned, but was later canceled as Fish abruptly left the industry.
