Polytron’s 2D platformer in a 3D world looks as good as ever.
Polytron’s critically acclaimed platformer Fez was revealed for the Nintendo Switch at the recent Indie World Showcase. It’s now available for the platform, allowing Switch players to experience the joy of 2D-meets-3D exploration. Check out the launch trailer below to see how it works.
The story follows Gomez who’s casually living his life. Upon receiving a red fez, the spacetime fabric changes and allows him to view the previously 2D world from a new perspective. The platformer involves rotating environments, which are fully 3D, on a 2D plane in order to uncover secrets, open up new paths and explore new possibilities.
Fez originally launched in 2012 for the Xbox 360 and made its way to the PC, PS3, PS4, PS Vita and iOS over the years. A sequel was announced in 2013 but following creator Phil Fish’s departure from the industry the same year, it was cancelled. Nevertheless, the original still stands the test of time and is worth experiencing.
