Review: FEZ

FEZ is an indie platformer with a retro look and a central premise that is as unique as it is simple. Sound familiar? Such games are a dime a dozen these days, with new ones cropping up every week, but back when FEZ was first revealed, it t...

Thanks for this, Polytron. Will the painfully long wait for Fez be worth it? That's the question at this point. If we keep getting more of these "long screenshots," perhaps it'll be more manageable.
