Fez - Análisis

In 2012, Fez was finally released, an independent title whose development lasted for more than five years. It is the problem of this type of projects (we strongly recommend you to watch the documentary Indie Game: The Movie). With just two people in charge, the Polytron study, led by the controversial Phil Fish at the helm, gave us one of the most rewarding experiences that the sector has given birth in recent years.

Almost two years later, this sensational proposal reaches all three Sony consoles: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita . Except for a couple of details in the new generation edition, the game is completely identical with respect to the versions that appeared previously on PC, Mac and Xbox 360. Of course, the Cross-Buy and Cross-Save functions have been added. For what acquired the game in a platform, it will be able to be enjoyed in any of the other two, being able to continue the game without losing the progress from any of them at all times.

On PlayStation 4 , we find a couple of quite interesting additions. The most important is that the adventure runs constantly at 60 frames per second , which avoids the slowdowns that were suffered in the original game. This is undoubtedly the result of the great work that the Spanish studio Blitworks has done in making this adaptation. On the other hand, and more anecdotal, is that the DualShock 4's light sensor lights up in a different color depending on the background on the stage. In Fez, the weather changes dynamically, a small detail, one of the many it hides, that enhances the adventure from the first pixel to the last.

If until now you have been hiding in a cave or have been embarking on a super secret special mission in recent years and you do not know what Fez is hiding, we will remind you again of the benefits that have led to such resounding success. It could be said that this work is one of the most sustainable turning points in the spectacular expansion of indie titles. Perhaps Phil Fish is a bigmouth, but it must be recognized that his creation is a genuine and sensational and indisputable show of talent.

Fez is an ode to the classic. A transport to own works of Spectrum or Commodore 64. A sign that the simplicity can sometimes be magnanimous . And that appearances are deceiving. They deceive and hide as many secrets as magic in the form of colored cubes.

The adventure stars the good of Gomez. This character lived calmly in a flat 2D world, full of joy, pixels and sprites. But suddenly, his world changed completely. A three-dimensional cube explodes into pieces and threatens to destroy the universe progressively. Fortunately, Gómez receives a Fez . A small red hat very common in countries like Turkey. This garment gives him a power that allows him to alter reality, thereby discovering that the place where he lives is really a three-dimensional universe. Using this particular ability, you must recover thirty-two golden blocks that have been divided into smaller cubes. Only then can you prevent the world from falling into complete chaos.

The mechanics of Fez are much simpler and more intuitive once put into practice than explained in words. We always move Gómez through completely two-dimensional planes, but using the triggers we can rotate the camera ninety degrees in order to change the perspective and visualize the four sides of each angle. We must constantly play with the movement of the image and use it to our advantage to inspect every hidden place in the universe created by Polytron , which hides a thousand secrets. It may be that in the first moments we feel somewhat lost to such a concept, but within a few minutes we realize how tremendously accessible it is to move our friendly character around the stage.

Fez has an ascending difficulty. Its structure is made up of tremendously intelligent puzzles . One of those that at first can be overwhelming, but it is to investigate or play with the prospects and find that platform to jump on or that creeper to climb to a higher level. Small steps that make you continue until you solve it once and for all, and receive personal satisfaction, which rewards you internally filling you with pride. If you go a little to pinion through the more than a hundred levels that Fez has, you can complete the adventure in about six hours if you go "on the sack", but its approach is highly replayable.

Another aspect to highlight is that it is not a complex adventure. It has its moments when you will get stuck or even go crazy looking for that damn yellow cube that we lack, especially when there are few left (there is a map, but its contribution is practically useless). But it is an exercise in patience. In Fez death is not penalized. If you fall from a great height you will return ipsofacto to the place from which you have rushed. This is a success since they even make exploration more bearable and dynamic, causing states of mind such as frustration or despair to be always far from appearing.

In addition and almost unintentionally, you will discover a lot of secrets as extras in the places of Fez. For example, for each cube there is an anti-cube. To achieve this you have to solve much more complex puzzles than usual, and to solve them you have to be attentive to the small clues that are awaited on stage very intelligently, in the form of pieces of Tetris, just to mention one of the winks that there is the world of the video game. Details that once again are a sample of elegance and good taste.

Visually, the 2D pixel art look is absolutely fabulous. A tribute to the 8-bit era that has given us so many good times, with colorful screens and uncontrollable characters milling around the screen and telling us their anecdotes. In addition, so that you do not lose detail, the texts are completely in Spanish.
