Fez
« on: July 17, 2007, 08:45:57 PM »

so, i figured id start a little official thread for the game im working on.
consider this thread official.

so the game's name is Fez.
for now anyway.
we actually have a super secret working title but it would give too much away.
so lets just call it Fez. also a working title.

Fez is Renaud Bedard on code and myself on everything else.
with very special guess 6955 with the musical chiptuney goodness.

Renaud is developing our top secret technology, while i mostly just lay down and figure out stuff.

the game is a puzzle/platformer/explorer. sort of.
cant say too much about it. yet.


so im still working with gradients here.
re-drew most of the core tile set tonight.
trying something different.
black background just for fun.

i must say i rather like this.
not as clean as the first batch, but more vibrant, i find.

more developments as they develop.

This looks savage ;O

If you dont mind me asking what is your approach when making such pixelated beauty?  Some sort of photoshop voodoo or other software?  I must know the secrets! :I

My guess is that it has some kind of modern/new gameplay mechanic that makes use of the pixel art in an unusual way.

i just zoom in as much as it will let me and i pixel away.
i dont limit myself tool-wise. ill use anything.
ill work in layers, and tweak the hell out of everything.
then i upscale.

Ah yes! We're getting coser to something playable! :D

Now, what's the game like? Classic plateform game? Action? Adventure? Something new? Any features you'd like to/can tell us?

Anyway, you can count me in as an official "really anticipating this game" fan! :D

Keep it up! If you need some help, don't be shy!

will Fez be anything like Rez?

i'm guessing no, but I'm looking forward to it anyways! A couple weeks back our local shriners club came cruising by our main street, i didn't even know Toronto had a shriners club. they're like an older, gentler hells angels.

no, no it wont.
for once.
most games i wrote designs for or started working on usualy have somekind of rez-ish music component atteched to it.
Rez is one of those games that just changed everything i knew about games.
its like my bible.
but Fez aint Rez.
but i chose the working title as a joke because it was only 2 strokes away from rez.
also, it is my belief that Fezes make everything better.
what if the rez guy had a fez?
better.

did your shriner guys drive those tiny littles cars?

they were totally cruising in their souped up go karts. it was a part of our local 'cultural' festival, including other community groups such as: the karate club, the steel drum band, and the local red neck club (Huh?). apparently, this is Canadian culture.

does Fez have a mini cart bonus stage?

oh yeah, and Rez is amazing. even if fez ain't rez hopefully it'll still have some booty shakin' beats, that little dude looks like he knows how to get down.

Mine on the left, yours on the right.

With the statue head just a little definition in the shadow areas, because it kind of blends to gray, it could pop out a bit more.

I suggest adding a few more bright colours to the urn/pot thing.  There's a bunch of colours in the lighter range there that aren't describing the volume.

With the blocks...these are definitely more vibrant, but some of the noise is a little pukey coloured, so I just suggest washing it out.

Looks fantastic though, keep doing what you're doing.
