    Please, rip off Fez a bit more!

      Please research MC Escher first, then understand what they're going for... then you wouldn't make uninformed comments like this?

        Yes it is an Escher style illusion, but it is Fez style graphics/art.

          Fez didn't pioneer the bright coloured, blocky, cute look. It merely used it. I can point you to various other games that used it prior to its existance too.

            Sure, just as Minecraft didn't pioneer everything Minecraft is and Angry Birds didn't pioneer its gameplay. It doesn't matter what did it first, so long as it is the current source of inspiration.

              Oh lord... where to begin with this one. I think I'm going to leave it right here, you kind of just answered it yourself.

        I am well aware of Escher.

        This art style is still ripping off Fez. In my opinion. Which you do not have to share.
