'Fez' Rated for XBLA - One Step Closer to Release

Posted Fri Dec 30, 2011 at 08:30 AM PST by Dick Ward

We've been waiting a long time for 'Fez,' but it looks like we won't have to wait too much longer.

If you've never heard of 'Fez,' it's high time you did. It's a 2D side scroller that allows you to rotate the world in 3D as a means of creating new avenues for you to travel. Yeah, it's a bit hard to explain - just watch the video.

'Fez' has been in development for quite some time and practically everyone with a penchant for creative indie games has been looking forward to it just as long. As it turns out, despite a significant delay last year, the game may finally be seeing the light of day.

'Fez' was just rated by the PEGI - Europe's ESRB - which means that a complete or nearly complete game must be in hand. We're hoping sooner rather than later, but creator Phil Fish puts the current release date as, simply, 2012.
