Meet Fez, your new best friend.

Fez is the story of a little, uh, dude on a mission. What that mission is? He must traverse the third dimension. Not surprisingly, the little guy wears a fez. The hats are also collectible apparently. Why should you care about Fez? Because Fez looks exceedingly awesome. It's old school meets new school. In Fez, you must scale vast towers of floating land, solving puzzles as you go. It's like a vertical platformer except you have the power to "flip" the landscape to another direction. Basically, it refines the gameplay mechanic seen in games like Super Paper Mario and Crush. It's 2D and 3D at the same time, with an awesomely catchy oldschool soundtrack. It looks like a lot of fun, if you ask me, and I think it'll be an arcade award winner when it launches later this year. Yes, it even looks more fun than Braid. Check out the new trailer below to see how colorful and laid back the game is. Gotta love that broken english!
