Fez: Hieroglyphic Alphabet Decoded

Fez may look like a simple platforming adventure game, but beneath the cute pixel-art visuals is a complex and deep puzzle for players everywhere to solve. Inside the game is a secret language, and if you want to understand what exactly is going on in the story, or follow the clues to solve dastardly puzzles while collecting hidden artifacts and more, you’re going to need to solve it.

Thankfully, the deft minds at Game Front have put on our collective thinking caps and solved the riddle behind Fez. Below you’ll find the efforts of our hard work, an image showing every glyph and what letter of the english alphabet they translate out to.
