Five minutes of Fez

Indie developer Polytron has released a delightful new trailer for Fez, showing off a full five-and-a-bit minutes from the version that was recently demonstrated at PAX East 2011.

As you'll see, Fez is a 2D platformer set in a 3D world, which players can rotate to discover and create new routes through levels. What may seem an uncrossable chasm from one angle might vanish when viewed from a new perspective. It all looks quite clever and more than a wee bit lovely.

Fez is due to be released via Xbox Live Arcade some time this year. Polytron is co-publishing it with Warp developer Trapdoor.
