ABOUT
This is a tiny adventure based directly on FEZ, by Polytron Corporation. It is a fan work, and was not made in collaboration with or endorsed by them.

FUZ features a total of 8 distinct areas. Its visuals, mechanics, and puzzles are all based off those in the original.

I made the music myself, as while FEZ has a phenomenal soundtrack a lot of it does not translate well to PICO-8. I can't claim to be very musically inclined, but I hope it works well enough.

Oh also, there is no save system, but the game is completable very quickly if you know what you're doing so getting back to your previous place is not hard.

Thanks for playing, and let me know what you think!

This is so cool! I love FEZ, but I am stuck here with deciphering the alphabet, it seems to be inspired by the one in FEZ but not an exact copy. Any hints? Could not find a pangram like in FEZ...

(+1)

Thank you!
You are correct, there is no pangram. Instead I went with a somewhat more complicated puzzle for deciphering the language that still uses similar logic to the original FEZ.
There may be some clues you've overlooked :)

Awesome work on this demake! Fun to play!

Wow! Stunning demake!! Great job and great use of pico-8 limitations! :)

Very cool how the game just Click the look and feel of the original FEZ, from the level design, the puzzle down to a little butterfly flying around.

Btw help... i can't find the third anti-cube nor figure it out the FUZ language :(

Thank you!
I tried to use logic similar to the original game. There may be some clues you've overlooked.

Thank you so much for this game, I loved it <3 But now I want a FEZ 2 :/

Hey, thanks for playing! Glad you liked it!
But yeahhh it's definitely a shame that got cancelled.

Since there's no haiku in the demake, I made you one:

Ok I've gotta admit I was definitely not expecting that :P
Thank you!

Beat it AND found the secret. Nice!

Awesome! Thanks for playing!

Awesome! Any reason it can't be played online here on itch?

Thank you! I've now added a browser version here as well!
(I hadn't before because I needed to figure out how to properly create that version, but it turns out it wasn't too hard to do.)
