[News] Indie Game Fez Finally Gets A Release Date

Polytron Corporation has finally revealed the release date for their indie platformer, Fez. The game will be released on Friday, April 13, granted luck stays on their side (pun totally intended).

The game is a simple 2D/3D platformer where you need to collect cubes in order to save the universe and prevent it from collapsing. The floating levels you hop through are built in 3D while the view is maintains a 2D view. You can adjust the camera to move to each side of the current floating island you’re traversing to continue through the level. The game will cost you 800 Microsoft Points to purchase.

Despite lead developer Phil Fish’s inflammatory statements about Japanese games, Fez still looks like an awesome indie game and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. The levels look gorgeous and the music is incredibly ambient and ethereal. For those of you who haven’t seen the game in motion, feel free to follow the link below to Fish’s official website and a short trailer of its game play.
