Humble Indie Bundle 9 Is Go(od)

By John Walker on September 11th, 2013.

It’s not Android games, nor soundtracks, nor books about kettles. The new Humble Bundle is the original, the Humble Indie Bundle 9. And for a ninth time in a row, it’s a corker. With names like Mark Of The Ninja, FTL: Faster Than Light, and FEZ, you can see the dollar signs spinning already.

Announced By The Grace Of Fish: Fez II

By Jim Rossignol on June 14th, 2013.


First there was Fez, and now there is two of it. That was the scene yesterday at Horizon Indie Game Conference yesterday, and later confirmed via content-free teaser trailer. You can try rotating this post through four dimensions to find out more about the new game, but the truth is that this is all we know. Sorry.

The original Fez is out on PC now.

Right Back Hat Ya: Fez Coming To Steam

By Nathan Grayson on March 19th, 2013.

“It’s a console game on a console. End of story,” Phil Fish somewhat famously told NowGamer of Fez’s PC prospects. But that was many embittered eons ago, and now gaming’s most divisive documentary star is singing a different tune. Confirming yet another one of those increasingly prophetic Steam listings, the previously hardware-bound, headwear-powered dimension-shifter is finally scrambling onto PC. But when? And how? As with all the important things in life, you will have to cleverly rearrange key building blocks of time and space to find out.

What’s All This About Brutal Legend? And Halo 3? Fez?

By Jim Rossignol on February 4th, 2013.


Hmm! The Klaxons of hype were blaring over the weekend, with Steam-database watchers claiming the appearance of Halo 3, Fez and Brutal Legend on the service’s list of forthcoming IDs. As far as I can see these have now been changed to “test” names, which suggests revealing their addition was a mistake, but nevertheless the information seems to point to Double Fine’s bizarre Jack Black-voiced rock RTS coming to PC, along with Master Chief’s third outing and Polytron’s dimension-rotating platformer. So that’s interesting. Oh and Quantum Conundrum 2.

Yeah. Anyway. What you been up to this weekend?

Wot I Think – Indie Game: The Movie

By Brendan Caldwell on June 12th, 2012.

The long-awaited documentary about the creators of Super Meat Boy, Braid and Fez is out now and available for download from its own site, iTunes or Steam. Here’s Mr Brendy C to tell you a few things about it before you spend your digi-groats on this much-feted film. Warning: could be said to include spoilers, if a documentary about some guys making videogames can be said to be spoilable.

Indie Game: The Movie is in the unusual position of being able to say it was using Kickstarter “before it was cool, man.” So it’s already vulnerable to the kind of folk who shout ‘hipster!’ at every twenty-something in a pair of milk-bottle glasses. Of course, our readers know better than that. As children, most of you will have undoubtedly been told the tale of The Boy Who Cried Hipster, the moral of the story being ‘don’t lie about there being a dickhead around, in case a real dickhead should actually show up one day to subtly insult your decor, or eat you.’ Being so well brought-up, I believe we can look at Indie Game: The Movie somewhat more fairly and see it for what it actually is: a good documentary which occasionally lapses into artificiality.

Home Cinema: Indie Game The Movie Is Released

By Alec Meer on June 12th, 2012.

Men, at work

Grumpypants time: I worry slightly that focusing on Super Meat Boy, Fez and Braid risks painting an extremely narrow picture of indie gaming, and as such Indie Game The Movie might be suffering from some of the same echo chamber issues that some felt this year’s IGF did. But hell, let’s celebrate that it has successfully brought an image of videogaming that isn’t guns/boobs/guns/boobs/guns/boobs/guns/boobs into another medium and be happy about it.

After what feels like years of promotion, the movie is finally out. But not in cinemas! No, right on your monitor. You can grab it from its own site, from iTunes or, a little later today, the Steams. I hear mixed reports, but I shall be in all likelihood watching it tomorrow and can report back more usefully then. Oh, and check back on RPS in a few hours to read young whippersnapper Brendan Caldwell telling you just wot he thinks of this here film.

Indie Game: The Movie Coming To Steam

By Adam Smith on May 25th, 2012.

I’ve got a mighty fine idea. Why not point a camera at a bunch of creative sorts and let them speak their minds? That’s how Indie Game: The Movie was made, although I suspect editing the hundreds of hours of footage into something watchable, fascinating and entertaining was the hard part. Perhaps that’s why Swirsky and Pajot’s film won World Cinema Documentary Editing Award at Sundance 2012. Everyone will be able to watch it soon, or at least anyone near an internet connection, as it will be available as a downloadable purchase on June 12th. What’s most intriguing about this is that one of the download services carrying the film will be Steam. This leads to the obvious questions: will every film in the world soon be available on Steam and will Episode Three be a cinemovie?

The Competition: The Story Behind The IGF’s Critics

By Brendan Caldwell on March 7th, 2012.


“There’s no plans to bring Fez out on any other platforms?” I ask Phil Fish, as he finishes off his sandwich. He chews and I mutter an inward prayer. Oh Gods, let him say PC. “We’re not even thinking about it right now,” he says. “I mean, ultimately, I would like to see it on everything. Why not? But we do have exclusivity with Microsoft, as you do – you find it’s really hard to not do that.”

The Gods are useless. Never pray.

Talkin’ Bout A Revolution: Babel

By Quintin Smith on October 6th, 2010.

Best headline of my career to date.

Remember Fez, that badass-looking indie platformer where you rotated the level to get around? Remember how it was scheduled for 2009, and then Microsoft bought it and it disappeared without so much as a scream into the oily depths of the Xbox Live Arcade release schedule? It’s now arriving in “2011″ as an XBLA exclusive. Sad times.

But the PC will not be crushed! Presenting Babel, a freeware game created for the Gamedev.net Retro Renaissance Challenge where devs add a modern mechanic into an old-school 2D platformer. Babel’s creator, Endurion, happily describes it as “Fez ripped off”. You can get Babel here, and watch a video after the jump. Thanks to Michael “Mike” Rose of the IndieGames Blog for the tipoff.

Excellent: Fez Trailer The Second

By Jim Rossignol on March 25th, 2009.


The almighty righteous TIGSource totally scooped the second Fez trailer. The dimension-warping platformer still looks completely great. One day we hope Polytron will talk to us too. That would be a fun time. They even link to us on their blog, but they’ve never got in touch. Don’t be shy Polydudes, we aren’t just about the horrendous implications of journalist porn. Honest. Splendid safe for work Fez trailer below.
