    Pretty sure there was a thread on this when it was announced well over a year ago.

    Simon Parkin interviews Phil Fish on Gamasutra
    (Other thread "Fez deserves its own thread" has been deleted?)
    So just recently, it started to sink in that we made a game that works. We have achieved what we wanted to do and it was like [sigh of relief]. Eeverybody who knows me that has seen me recently, they all tell me: "Phil, you look so much more calmer than the last time I saw you a year ago; you're almost a different person." Yeah, I feel completely different; I am not in complete terror/panic mode 24/7. I'm starting to be like: "I did it." It feels really good.
    What are you hoping that your players are going to take from Fez?

    PF: I hope it kind of opens people's eyes to the fact that you can make that kind of game, and make it good. You don't need combat, conflict, threat, opposition. That you can make a game that is strictly about walking around and exploring and that kind of peaceful vibe. I mean, it's not like it's the first game ever to do that, but I don't know -- maybe it can set a new standard.

    Because I felt that in making games we have very few points of reference. I mean, obviously, we had Mario and the Zelda and all that. Before it became peaceful and Zen, there were enemies in there, there was danger, and you had to avoid certain things. And I wondered: "Can you make a game without any of that, and still make it interesting?"

    In fact, when I was playing today I came to a rabbit and I was about to walk up to him, then I thought, "Do I need to jump on his head?" And I felt slight relief when I saw I didn't have to. A realization that it's that kind of game...

    PF: A lot of people had that reaction. I think it's funny, because the critters look so innocent. They're not threatening at all, and most of them will run away from you when you get close to them, or they fly away. I think it's kind of funny that it's so deeply ingrained in people's heads -- anything that moves, you have to kill it.

    Sounds great. This and Journey seem to be the downloadables to watch out for next year.

    Oh yes, another good quote. Bodes well if representative.
    I had this class of kids come in yesterday morning, 12 to 15 year olds. First thing in the morning I was scared shitless. I thought these kids are going to tear me apart; they are not going to like this game, they are not going to get this game. They are not going to get like the nostalgia aspect of it, because they're too young, and I was certain that they'd be saying things like, "There's no guns in this game?! What the fuck this is?" But no, they were like entranced by it, and they kept saying like, "This is amazing! I need an Xbox now."
    Developer in 'my game is good' shocker etc.

    I have only just seen this trailer. Loving the art style and the way the levels rotate. I think I'll have to pick this up on release!

    I wouldn't hold your breath, it's been 5 years in the making and still no sign of a release date.

    Is the game not effectively finished now though db? I thought I'd heard before that this was in a similar situation to Trials Evolution and Wrecked and that Microsoft are just delaying it to fit the XBLA schedule?

    Perhaps, who knows.

    Shame it's not getting a steam release, releasing games on XBLA is pretty much a waste of time and energy for all the copies they sell.

    Well, it's like the man Fish himself said, if you can't play it on a couch and with a controller there really is no point. Got to respect the guy for standing by his art.

    Finished and with Microsoft for certification, AFAIK. It's gotta be one of the big XBLA releases of the year, sounds like a Summer of Arcade title.

    If this ends up in Summer of Arcade with Trials and Retro City Rampage I'll be annoyed as it means I'll probably have to pick and choose due to lack of time on my part.

    Unless it's otherwise a quiet summer for releases I suppose.

    As it is "done" so to speak we may be lucky that it has to be released before the new 400 gamerscore becomes mandatory?

    Trials Evo is out in April, isn't it?

    Really looking forward to Fez, it looks utterly unique and gorgeous.

    Just in case anyone doesn't want to part with their money for Fez, play this for free instead:

    Looks nice in a Crush meets Nebulous type way.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    It looks like it's going to make my brain sore. Like your muscles after a good workout.

    Gah, that image was traumatic first thing in the morning.

    Good news, though. Looking forward to this.

    Out this Friday then. Seems very far away right now.

    Just a heads-up.

    I wonder what kind of reviews Fez will be getting.
