Why I Respect Phil Fish and Love FEZ

Gamnesai: "How's that for controversial? But no, it's true; I greatly respect Phil Fish. Ever since I saw Indie Game: The Movie, I've thought he was a really interesting developer, and now that the Steam Holiday Sale was finally able to persuade me to buy FEZ (75% off, but it's still 50% off until January 2nd), I know that he's an artist whose works I love.

I remember in Indie Game: The Movie, Fish said something about wanting to make FEZ's world a relaxing environment, just a nice place to be. He succeeded. Not only is FEZ absolutely beautiful, but it's also got tonally amazing music, great game feel, and fantastic low-stress design. Perhaps best of all, every one of these elements fits just perfectly alongside its fellows as well. FEZ is a wonderfully comfortable place to be, in a genre I adore, and I think its creator has been given quite a bit more shit than he deserves." (Fez, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
