Polytron's Indie Game Fez was my favorite game of 2012. Because the levels in the game remind me so much of Lego bricks it seemed only proper to recreate the first level out of Lego.
My objective when building this model was to duplicate the board brick for brick. I spent many hours watching a play through video of the first board as I built the model from the ground up.
1. It floats on transparent bricks
2. Grass along the side of the building
3. Two floating islands
4. Has a mailbox at the top and bottom
5. Spinning windmill
6. Treasure Chest
7. Two Trees
8. Water Tower
9. Every Building Represented
10. Solid Base
Why I submitted this model to Cuusoo:
When I built this model I posted it on reddit and the Fez Homepage. I then put it on the shelf for display. Over the next few days I discovered it was featured on the Fez homepage
, MTV's blog
, and Indie Game the Movie's website
. After many requests for the model from comments on those sites I added it to Cuusoo. Thanks to everyone who have enjoyed it and asked for it as a model. Hopefully it will get the 10,000 supporters needed for Lego to review it. My flickr image of the model has over 8,000 views so there certainly a possibility of this happening.
I think video game Lego models are in short supply. What makes Fez a great candidate for a Lego model is that is a non-violent game that appeals to all age ranges.
Lets take a little tour of the model:
