Fez had a long and storied development. Initially announced in 2009 with a projection to be released the following year, the game was later pushed to 2012.
Fez is a 2D platformer built entirely using Microsoft's XNA tools in an 8-bit pixel art style. The game also adds a third dimension and lets players rotate the game world around the protagonist, Gomez. The game is expected to be released on PC on May 1 via digital distribution platform Steam.
