Fez launches on Xbox Live Arcade

Friday, 13th April 2012 10:43 GMT By Johnny Cullen

After years in development, Phil Fish’s platformer Fez has gone live on Xbox Live Arcade. Get it queued to your 360 here at the measly file size of 273Mb for 800 MS points. Reviews have been exceptionally great for the game this week: Eurogamer gave it a ten yesterday.

Watch out later today for a piece on it from Nathan.

    Took almost 5 years to come out. Beaten to the punch by a flash game.

    It puts the flash games on its skin.

    It’s a good game, that Sky Island. But it hasn’t the scale or ambition of Fez.

    Thats because its a small flash title made in a number of weeks and not 4 fucking years.

    Fez pretty much is a flash game with a central gimmick spun out a little. Its still got the same tired “retro” asthetic and the chiptunes and every other indie art-game cliche going. Its another 2D platformer only this time there are no enemies and no real chance of failure, I would guess theres a message behind that choice somewhere but I really don’t care either way.

    Now that Rayman Origins costs next to nothing why would you buy Fez over it?

    Why look for a message? There’s no dying because that makes it fun, and frees you up to solve puzzles. See Monkey Island etc.
