When Fez creator Phil Fish announced that the game would be coming to platforms outside of Xbox 360, he didn’t specify which ones. Most people seemed to assume it would be PC, and as it turns out, most people assumed correctly! Fez is hitting Steam on May 1, and you can preorder it here.
For those who haven’t played it, Fez is a 2D platformer that takes place in a 3D world. And while you do many of the things one usually does in a platformer, there’s also a heavy emphasis on puzzle solving and exploration. It is, at the risk of sounding hyperbolic, one of the hardest games ever. But don’t let that scare you away! It’s completely possible to beat the game without having to solve any of the hardest puzzles, although I recommend going back once you’re done and trying them out.
Fish is currently doing an AMA on Reddit, where he’s announcing all sorts of awesome things. For example, Mac and Linux releases of Fez “will eventually follow.” Also, it appears there are secrets in the game that no one out there has discovered yet! Remember when I said it was one of the hardest games ever? Yeah.
