This one feels like it took ages to come around, it's surreal to see it actually played.

It's crazy that this game is finally happening. I'm remaining cautiously excited, though!

I don't think I'm going to watch this right now. I've heard a lot, but seen very little of this game so I think I may just let it be a surprise for me come Friday. Nothing quite like that sense of discovery, in my opinion. Here's to hoping it lives up to the hype!

I like the visuals of this.
 
I like the music.
 
 
But jesus, I am so fucking sick of this type of game. I have "2d retro throwback indie platformer"-fatigue. Its kind of starting to eclipse the shooter fatigue I had a while ago.

Hm, that note sequence when opening a big door reminds me of some other game. Does anybody else know?

I am torn between my desire to consume as much FEZ-related content as possible and my equally strong desire to avoid watching any further gameplay so as to save as much of the game as possible to be experienced firsthand. ARGH.

To bad our car broke down yesterday, and is going to cost us 750 to fix. At least I have just enough points laying around for Trials Evolution.

So...basically it's a Newgrounds'ish collect-a-thon with little challenge presented in 3D and a stylized "retro" look.

Yawn.

Sure I'll play it, but I am kind of disappointed to hear the game has a hard time letting you know where to go and what to do. With a game like this, something like that seems like it can be super frustration super fast.

I dunno. I like the look and the sound design, but the game itself seems...boring, I guess? The puzzles seem like they solve themselves; just rotate until you get where you need to. Maybe it gets harder?
 
I've been playing Crush 3D over the last couple weeks - which this game sorta reminds me of and why I bring it up, they both have mechanics that deal with using perspective changes to solve puzzles - but Crush's puzzles are actually pretty difficult and quite engaging. This seems a lot more low key, maybe that's why it isn't grabbing my attention. I can't seem to put my finger on it, exactly.

@LooseChange: Yes it is. He also condemned an entire nation (Japan) for making crappy games despite crappy games existing everywhere.

I agree. I like the look, the music, the atmosphere but, there doesn't seem to be much in the way of engaging gameplay. Is the story really good? Does it ever get challenging? Normally this sort of game is right up my alley, but I need something to pull me in; the challenge and precision of Meat Boy, the puzzle aspects of Braid and World of Goo, that sort of thing.
