There have been a number of "the next big indie title" over the last few years. Games like Braid, World of Goo and Limbo became veritable wunderkinds in their field for being made by small teams, packed full of heart.
Fez is no different.
The game begins with Gomez--a vanilla white dude with a rectangle head--obtaining some sort of magical fez hat. This hat allows Gomez, and the player, to shift his 2D world into four different angles, revealing that the world is really 3D and its inhabitants are blissfully unaware of it.
Yes, Fez is a very peculiar game.
