I wanted to hate FEZ. I really did. It’s an indie game that purports to change the way we play. It’s an indie game that is, by all accounts, years late. It is an indie game whose creator takes himself and his craft very, very seriously. Ultimately, though, it’s an indie game that looked – to me, at least – like a rip-off of Cave Story with a used up 2D-3D mechanic.
However, here’s a sentiment that Noomi Rapace will very likely back me up on: I was wrong. I was so wrong.
