Subject: Holy Shit, it's AWESOME
The guys over at kokoromi have won the 2008 Independent Games Festival award for Excellence in Visual Art for their new game concept, Fez.

Wow, oh wow, does it ever look incredible.

Words just can't describe it.  Please, please, go look at it and judge for yourself.

New Fez trailer has been posted, and it still looks amazing.  If it's 10% as fun as it looks, it'll be great.

The developers of Fez talk a bit about 3D pixels (trixels) and tiles (triles), followed by a more detailed post.

Very interesting for the gaming gearhead, but unlikely for normal people.

Over on the polytron blog there's a lovely two-year development recap showing snapshots of the trials and progress made to date.  Go check out the full post, it has hover-comments for each image.   Here's a sampling:
