Indie games enthusiasts have been waiting a long time—five years, to be exact—for Fez. The creation of solo designer Phil Fish and  Renaud Bédard puts players in charge of Gomez, a slightly blobby-looking creatureperson searching for pieces of a mysterious golden cube in a gorgeous, pixelated world. Before it exploded into the pieces called bits, the talking cube gave Gomez titular headwear which lets him rotate the 2D world around a 3D axis. This head-spinning gimmick adds a clever freshness to the kind of old-school platforming challenges we’ve all played a million times before. Fez is due out before the end of this year, so we’ll all get the chance to see if it’s worth the wait.
