A PICO-8 demake of FEZ.

Z/X: Rotate the world
CONTROLS (Mobile-Friendly Version)
Left/Right while holding X: Rotate the world
This is a tiny adventure based directly on FEZ, a game by the 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.
Also, while there is no save system, the game is completable very quickly if you know what to do so getting back to your previous place is not hard.

Thanks for playing, and let me know what you think!
I take some times trying fuz, that's fun ! Great job ! Visual effect for turning the world is good. Music fits to the game and is not anoying. Greats ideas of demake with good surprises at somes points.
I think I miss one cube and didn't see the full end :D
Here is my end screen :
Extremely faithful demake of FEZ, the graphics look great and the 3D mechanic looks extremely cool.
To anybody else: please go through the 4-cube door and complete the game before expanding the spoiler tag below. Okay?
Really liked decoding the language, and I liked how you showed an example word in one room. 100%ed the game, including the secret that I saw in the map ████████!
Wow, this is getting a lot of love. Thanks so much everyone!
A few specific replies:
@dhostin Yep, these is indeed more you haven't seen!
@arashi256 Thanks! Good to hear you like the music!
@AdamJ Thank you! Though I can't take credit for the design because I tried to keep it as faithful to the original as I could for the most part.
@TheV360 Dang, congrats on finding that so fast! I suppose it's in true FEZ fashion for someone to track down the more hidden secrets within 6-7 hours :P
@Thunder919113 You might wanna check your spelling :)
@Skulhhead1924 Um you do realize that FUZ uses different characters than FEZ right?
@Thunder919113 It sounds like you're on the right track at least. There might be some more clues you've overlooked though.
@ultrabrite Thank you!! And yeah my approach to this was definitely to try to give a small slice of full FEZ gameplay instead of to reduce the actual mechanics of the original.
This was an excellent game! Very faithful to the original Fez, and had some very clever puzzles. I'm pretty sure I got everything, but I didn't have hearts flying around the character at the end like shown in another screenshot. The only thing I might've missed was:
