Fez Teaser Trailer

At long last, the great Phil Fish has unveiled in-game footage of his IGF contender Fez.

Early on he had mentioned a big, secret element to the gameplay… but people say that kind of thing all the time, yeah? Usually it’s some gimmick, or something not as great as they imagined. Not so with Fez. Once you experience it, you realize it’s not only no gimmick — it’s an entirely new and compelling experience.

I cannot wait to play the finished game!

It’s fun looking back now and noticing the little hints Phil dropped along the way… If you had a keen enough eye, you probably could’ve figured him out.

Awesome job, Phil and Renaud!

Watch the video. DISCUSS.

UPDATE: Fish just released a new shot of the game showing off their 3D 2D rendering tech, which they call “Trixels.” (Not voxels, I swear!) Check it out here.

Notice how every “pixel” (trixel) is rendered in 3D. Very cool.

UPDATE II: Fez programmer Renaud explains Trixels vs. voxels, and a bit of Fez’s gameplay, on the Kokoromi blog. (Thanks Petri!)

    This game brings some lovely images of ps1 glory days. Tale Concerto and Megaman legends 2. Oh boy.

    Am I alone or do PS1 pixelated 3d graphics make anyone else go gah gah…

    1. Vagrant Story
    2. Metal Gear Solid
    3. Silent Hill
    4. Megaman Legends 2/ Misadventures of Tron Bonne
    5. Tail Concerto

    I love looks button in all these games so I could stare at those glorious pixel textures. I don’t think these games could ever look any better.
    YAY Fez!

    @Noah: Hell yeah, man! Vagrant Story was great (to look at, at least!).

  • DrDerekDoctors

    Vagrant Story’s textures are indeed the sex. Pity about the gameplay.

  • Noah

    Whenever the repetitive dungeon crawling would get me down I would take a deep breath and use the look button.

  • Larry Martin

    I’m absolutely blown away by the innovative approach Phil Fish and his team have taken with Fez! The use of Trixels, and the genuine excitement in their updates, promise a gaming experience that’s truly groundbreaking. Can’t wait to dive into this unique world!
