    Check out the first six minutes of the upcoming XBLA title

    Polytron Corporation's long-delayed title, Fez, is finally closing in on its release on the Xbox Live Arcade. To get players ready, six minutes of gameplay footage from PAX East was released by the company.

    Fez has actually been kicking around since 2008 when it won the Excellence in Visual Art award at the Independent Games Festival. It also picked up a nomination for Innovation in Design that year. It was initially announced for XBLA release in 2010, but is now expected to arrive sometime later this year.

    Can anyone explain why that is such an excellent visual design?

    I goofed and it's actually Excellence in visual art, but I don't know that that would change your point. :)

    It actually really impressed me at PAX East, though this has been on my radar for a while, so my threshold may be lower. :)

    Because it's like a bad 2D game (NES like) but in a 3D environment, so it's really a choice the conceptors made more than bad design.

    Kinda like Super Meat Boy...

    The 3D rotations are very fluid!

    hell no this is some great soothing ambient and why should it matter anyways if you have a game and don't enjoy the music, what are you gonna do about it? just mute the music and listen to your own as you're playing it

    Looks confusing but it's different, and different is good in my opinion.

    "Innovation in Design" for being retro? xD
    The concept of the visuals doesn't seem too innovative to me. It's pretty much building on existing ideas (Paper Mario, other 2d/3d mixes) in my opinion.

    But interesting nonetheless.

    Contrary to some of the posts so far, I like the visual style of this game, but it doesn't half look like it drive me mad. I can imagine there will be some crazy puzzles.

    Not sure about this one to be honest.

    This game is going to be the shit. It looks so tricky. I had to re-watch 2:08-2:25 to see what it did. Those 17 seconds made me want this game. For some reason it reminded me of an old game called tomba that i loved when i was a kid, but this is nothing like it

    Wow, haven't heard of Tomba in a long time!

    I think the game is actually more similar to Crush on the PSP. It's a perspective puzzler as well.

    So by your logic, every game should feature a shitty soundtrack so I can mute it and listen to my own music. Bravo sir, you are a genius.

    i'll be real. This game looked lame. But the part at 2:25 peaked my interest. It adds a whole new twist to a 2d/3d concept
