Polytron’s Fez is available for half-price today for just 400 Microsoft points for one day only on the Xbox Live Marketplace. The game would usually set you back 800 Microsoft points, so you’re getting a real bargain today, but be quick.
If you’re not familiar with Fez, it’s a puzzle platformer. The plot of Fez revolves around Gomez, a two-dimensional creature who lives in a flat, 2D world. One day, Gomez encounters a strange and mysterious artifact called the Hexahedron, which gives him a magical fez hat that allows him to perceive a third dimension. Just as Gomez begins to explore his new ability, the Hexahedron suddenly fractures and explodes, causing the world around him to glitch up and freeze.
The game “reboots” and Gomez wakes up to find that he can now explore his world in three dimensions. A floating hypercube explains that he must collect the fragments of the Hexahedron, which have been scattered across the world, before the world is torn apart.
