The dust has settled and only one independently developed title is left standing. Seconds ago Fez was announced as the winner of the 'Seumas McNally Grand Prize' at the 14th annual Independent Games Festival Awards.
This is the second IGF award for the Polytron-developed title. In 2008, Fez took home the IGF award for excellence in art. After nearly five years of development, Fez is undergoing certification for release on Xbox Live Arcade.
Fez is the story of Gomez, a 2D character in a 2D world -- or is it? Indie dev Polytron Corporation's debut XBLA game looks like a retro throwback but allows players to rotate the game world in three dimensions in order to reach Gomez's goals.
