While you're waiting for Fez to arrive, how about playing a Fez clone instead? Created for the Gamedev.net Retro Renaissance Challenge, Babel is a lovely platformer which uses the world rotation mechanic, allowing you to reach platforms that you couldn't before by switching planes.
It's really clever stuff, and strangely calming - the first few levels teach you the basics, and then you're throw right into the thick of it with castles to jump all over and trees to climb. There are 13 levels in total, and the whole thing will take you around 20-30 minutes to complete. You can see from Paul Eres' video above that it can be a little tricky to work out exactly what where you're meant to be going, but it's very satisfying when you finally work out the answer.
You must give this a download from Retro Remakes. Well... go on!
