What is Fez

It’s a game. A really cool one:

I don’t know the specifics. Like what platform it’s on, or when it’s coming out, or who made it Kokoromi. The gaming industry’s been bland for a long time. I’m glad things like this and the wii can help more of us appreciate the visually different, rather than just things with high production value. Another current (anti)trend in games is low budget. During one session of a gaming class while in my major at UCLA DMA I sat in just to hear Jenova Chen from USC Interactive talk about his work, notably Flow.

With games getting smaller and easier to make for individual creators just as quickly as they are becoming more complex in the commercial industry, I wonder if someday we can all make our own ‘games’ and tailor them to our needs and dreams.
