FEZ Turns Heads on PS4, PS3, Vita March 25th

Marie-Christine Bourdua's Avatar + Posted by Marie-Christine Bourdua on Mar 03, 2014 // Producer, Polytron

This is it. We’ve come to the end of development, and Fez is finally coming to PlayStation on March 25th! It’s been an incredible adventure, and we couldn’t have made it without the amazing work of BlitWorks and the support of Sony’s team. In the name of all of us at Polytron, thank you so much!

FEZ on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita

People have been asking for a PS3 version of Fez since day one, and we believe it was worth the wait. Blit took the time to make a solid C++ port of the game, which runs smoothly at native resolution on PS Vita, and 720p at 60 frames per second on PS3.

The PS4 version is what we consider to be the best-looking and smoothest Fez experience you can get on a TV set, running at beautiful 1080p (and yes, 60fps too). You wouldn’t think that upping the resolution would make a big difference in a game like ours, where the pixels are the size of Gomez’s fist… but it really does look even crisper and blockier — in a good way.

No one’s going to blame you for digging around, but you won’t find many big changes in these versions of the game. However, there are a few surprises… especially in the PS4 version: DualShock 4’s lightbar has been put to the task of bringing a little bit of Fez’s world into your own home, and you may not need to search for that dusty pair of red/cyan glasses to experience a very late-game easter egg… Funny story: to test the new 3DTV support, we spent a weekend running around computer shops to find a monitor that sports an integrated emitter. When we found one and started up Fez, our minds were forever expanded. I think we can see the fourth dimension now?

So the PS4 version is loaded with sexy features, but definitely don’t hold off from getting a dose of Fez on the go, especially with a cross-save slot shared across all three platforms! I sometimes idle the game in a puzzle room, transforming my PS Vita into an infinite Disasterpeace music generator. We’re excited to see what other ways people will find to enjoy the first portable version of Fez.

Let’s all enjoy the universe of Fez one more time (or for the first time) on PlayStation!

Off topic but is it really truely the end of fez 2? If so, what will polytron be working on now that Fez is pretty much everywhere it wants to be, can they make a new game without Phil Fish?

Very interesting game. It came out on another platform after I switched to Playstation, so I missed it. I’m very glad to know I’ll be able to play an improved version on PS4. =D

I’m curious as to the framerate on Vita!

+ fourfour44 on March 3rd, 2014 at 9:22 am said:

Isn’t this the game from the guy that trash talked Japanese games and Japanese gaming platforms while making his game? Now he needs some money so he’s releasing his game on a Japanese gaming platform?


40

+ DUBLX- on March 3rd, 2014 at 9:38 am said:

@fourfour44 Pretty sure he didn’t “need some money.” This is something PS gamers have been asking for. Making games is a business. You go where there’s demand.

+ warezIbanez on March 3rd, 2014 at 10:23 am said:

Screw Phil Fish. I don’t mean any harmful words to the rest of the guys on the team, but Phil HAS BEEN A CANCER to the industry. He has taken his pretentious attitude where it needed to go, and so I wish the best for this team to build a game they TRULY want to see it go instead of a challenge-less 8-bit platformer. (No offense to you guys, I know you guys are much more capable than Fez.)


42

+ warezIbanez on March 3rd, 2014 at 10:24 am said:

Also, don’t get me wrong, platformers have been challenging, BUT NOT FEZ, WHICH IS ITS INHERENT PROBLEM.


43

+ Nazotchi on March 3rd, 2014 at 10:34 am said:

Fez has some truly gorgeous visuals, but it’s honestly one of the worst platformers out there. The puzzle design is completely arbitrary, and there isn’t one single satisfying moment in the game. It’s all flair, and no substance.


44

+ Ethereal on March 3rd, 2014 at 11:16 am said:

Having watched Indie Game: The Movie, I will completely support the indie movement. These games go through a lot and deserve our support regardless of how well that are made and all that other nonsense. It’s healthy to industry to see the little guys make it.

+ coolasj19 on March 3rd, 2014 at 11:30 am said:

Yo Blitworks, from a features and performance standpoint, this is literally the best thing ever. Cross-Buy, Cross-Save, Native Res Vita, I’m basically gonna buy this just because of the value. So thank you for that.

So. Excited. Again.
