Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[FEZ] is out on Live Arcade! Use spoiler tags when discussing puzzles and their solution!

    If you think it's non-fun puzzle-platforming, why did you buy it?

    I mean, that's what it was touted as (except the non-fun part)

    And these games do have trials

    Whoops... I mean the non "fun puzzle platforming" parts. I like the puzzle platforming, not so much the crazy obtuse puzzles.

    The puzzles are what take this from an ok game with great style, to a great game, for me. Modern games are sooo linear and handholdy....this game actually treats the player like an adult.

    This game is amazing and I am trying hard to complete it on my own.

    I feel like this game is one of those unsolvable puzzles that some secret government agency is using to recruit people.

    This is my sig.
    There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

    I like puzzle games. Spacechem is one of my favorite games I've played recently. But some of this stuff in Fez is just... really really involved. Like, obsessively involved. But the platforming stuff and some of the easier, none-cipher related puzzles have been fun.

    Don't let the cipher talk put anyone off. I played for joyful hours last night just exploring and platform puzzling. The cipher stuff is very much a take or leave side dish.

    Not sure if things are just decoration, or part of some puzzle that I'm not seeing.
    Also, what's up with that bell? O_o

    So I bought it even though I didn't like the demo (because I'm dumb like that). Turns out it's fantastic. If anything I'd recommend to people that if they have a passing interest in the game, just go for it, don't bother with the trial.

    Played about 45 minutes. Pace seems really slow. Not sure this is for me. Love the retro-with-modern-tech look though.

    Cool. I was wondering if there would be an in game obvious key at some point or if I'd need to wait for the internet to provide.

    If it's not a spoiler, what was your rosetta stone?

    The demo really isn't a fair representation, it lacks any of the charm of the actual game and the sense of exploration, it just seems like a retro platformer with a gimmick, whereas I'm really loving the full game.

    Though as someone pointed out, how did the 2D villagers decorate the other walls in their homes?

    Can I just say how fucking cool it is that this game uses QR codes?

    That's pretty cool

    As someone who doesn't have a smart phone, I think it's really dumb.

    But as long as you don't need the QR codes, I guess it's fine.

    Yeah, it's less stupid if it's available other ways. If it was just the code though, that's lame. I shouldn't need a computer phone to play a game.

    Now that I've decided to just go with it, all these puzzles are tickling my brain in just the right way. Just have to learn to relax and let it get inside of you.

  • Inker2000Inker2000 Registered User regular
    this game was news to me, but i checked it out cuz it reminded me of meat boy.

    it's quite a bit different than that, but an interesting game in and of itself. i would consider it a cross between a 2d platformer and the collectathon games made famous on the n64. certainly recommend it, especially for only 800 microsoft points.

    Now some just needs to work out the Tetris block language and what I think is a mini version of the cube language, though that may just be numbers?

  • Mr_GrinchMr_Grinch Registered User regular
    Is the answer to the bell puzzle somewhere around the start or may I not have come across it yet?

    I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm earning black cubes out of nowhere without understanding why. I found an area with six small moveable blocks and a tetris-esque rosetta stone behind them. I assembled the blocks into the shapes indicated on the stone but nothing happened. Then I pushed some of them around and messed up the shapes, and earned a black cube. What in the world?

    Black cubes are the secret cubes.

  • ruzkinruzkin Registered User regular
    Well, I get that they're the secret cubes. I just don't know how I'm earning them.

    Yeah I'm enjoying going around this world collecting cubes, but these puzzles are way too fucking obtuse for me.

    Right. I'm at 204.3% or whatever. Got 32 cubes and anticubes plus everything but one piece of the heart cube. The only place not gold is the monolith, which from looking at the leader boards, only one person on the planet has figured it out. Wierdly there are people at 209% but that is apparently just from the leader boards not updating unless you unlock something else.

    Also there is a glitch that can get a 33rd anticube but I can't find anywhere where someone says how that got it.

    I have 5 more cube to find. Its starting to feel more and more like I actually need to decode all these runes. So close, yet so far...

    Thus far I'm finding the translations so far provide absolutely nothing to get more cubes (Though I only have 31 cubes and 16 anti-cubes). I'm really getting lost on those tetromino code puzzles. Some of them seem to do things, while others don't seem to do anything at all. Am I missing something?

    The GB Quicklook on this is funny. The game is trying Jeff's sanity.



    It sounds like the game is made to baffle people. No wonder it took so long to make. Is there supposed to be a PC release?

    Edit. Looking at their blog. It seems that Polytron is having plenty of trouble with the 360 version. Unless there is a separate team working on it, I doubt there will be PC release soon. Still, it is an XNA game. Porting it should be extremely easy.

    Woo, figured out the bell through an educated guess!

    Sort of sad my leader board position has tanked, but I guess that is the nature of puzzle games post Internet....
