FEZ lets you explore a once peaceful 2D world flipped on its head by an amazing discovery of a 3rd dimension. As Gomez, equipped with an amazing ability allowing for a game-changing perspective shift, you explore a delightfully pixelated realm. With one press of a button impassable gaps disappear, hidden doors pop up, and suddenly, solutions sprout in the player's head. At the same time, the clever design of FEZ makes one pay attention to the smallest of details – a lightning bolt illuminates a hidden passageway, a recurring symbol finally points the player in the right direction.
