A Windows version of Fez, the “Seamus McNally Grand Prize” at the Independent Games Festival in 2012, will be released on May 1, as revealed by the game’s new Steam page. Like the XBLA version, it’s listed as developed by Polytron and published by Trapdoor.

Fez is a space-bending platformer that uses a 2D perspective shifting mechanic to solve puzzles and complete levels. The protagonist is a white creature named Gomez, who lives in what he believes is a 2D world until a strange and powerful sentient artifact reveals to him the existence of a mysterious third dimension. He wears a fez and is obsessed with collecting hats exploring and finding treasures.

There are no enemies, no bosses, no combat in the game. In fact, no conflict of any kind. You can die, but there is no penalty for doing so.
