GDC Fez Trailer

I'm pretty inconsistent when it comes to platformers, especially 2d(ish) ones like this. But I won't deny the quality that is present in this one. Comeandtakealooksee. :D OH and its definitely coming out on some sort of gaming platform in the near future.

Instant classic since its very first trailer back in 2007. This is so short, I want more damnit. I love how they recreate the 8-16 bit feel (or less in those monochrome areas) when in reality it's a fully 3D environment. FEZ FOR PRESIDENT.

Interesting, but it does seem to pull a lot of influence from echochrome. Maybe a bit too much.

I wholeheartedly approve this product as of 2 minutes ago.

Undeniably Super Paper Mario is an influence on this. Shifting from 2D to 3D is a great concept. I also feel Echocrhome was an influence.

I see where you're coming from, but, correct me if I'm wrong,in Super Paper Mario, obstacles or enemies were usually the reason for shifting perspective (with a few exceptions), rather than flat drops into empty space/platforming challenges as displayed in Fez and Echochrome. Also, In Super Paper Mario, you basically could switch from 2D to 3D. In Fez and Echochrome, once you change your camera angle you are back in 2D. In Fez and Echochrome, you are only in 3D for that split second that you are actively changing the camera angle.

I know that was oddly worded, it's late where I am.

I could be completely wrong. Just my two cents.

Sir, you make very good points. I apologize if I came off as a little blunt, you have proven your point well.

It reminds me less of Echochrome and more of this old PSP puzzler called Crush, which was all about going from 3D to 2D to solve puzzles.
