You could put together a decent indie games showcase for nothing just by loading the Epic Games Store and clicking a button. The current freebie on there is Polytron's excellent, world bending puzzle-platformer, Fez. It's definitely worth the zero doubloons they’re asking for it.

Kentucky Route Zero, the game so good we declared it our game of the year back when only two of its episodes were out, is currently half-price. That's always worth pointing out, that.

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.
"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.

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.
