Fez II

Thought the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) was fresh out of announcements? Wrong! Well, kind of.

Phil Fish, the indie developer responsible for last year’s dimension-shifting Fez, sneakily announced a sequel on Twitter shortly after revealing the new project at Horizon, an alternative E3 press conference held today that focused on non-standard fare (so probably no military shooters).

Fish linked to a short teaser trailer, which you can watch below. The video doesn’t reveal much more than a logo, but this is still welcomed news for fans of creative platformers.


Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.

Watch On Demand

Players and critics praised the original Fez (we gave the game an 83-out-of-100). The indie 2D sidescroller won people over with its charming, retro graphics and inventive gameplay, which allows players to shift the world’s perspective by moving the camera.
