Top Five Games I can't wait to play at IndieCade
1. Fez by Polytron
Fez made its debut October 11, 2007 as a puzzle-based game with a rotating 2D/3D landscape. The gameplay seems similar to Japan’s Echochrome where the player solves puzzles by rotating the camera perspective to help a character across pitfalls. Though Fez incorporates Echochrome’s overall gameplay concept, in Fez you can actually control your character. The world has four different perspectives the user is able to rotate between and the art gives off a retro, pixel feel.
After watching numerous videos, I can easily see myself getting sucked into the puzzle solving and charming atmosphere that Fez offers. It is the only game at IndieCade that will be released on Xbox Live.
