Polytron Corporation's forever-in-development yet fascinating 2D/3D platformer is on schedule for a new, slightly later "early 2012" release date according to founder Phil Fish's Twitter feed.

The game has been making the rounds for years. Fish had previously suggested a soft 2011 release date, but that apparently isn't going to happen.

Fez is a unique platformer that plays with your perceptions of two-dimensional and three-dimensional space after drawing you in with a cutesy art style reminiscent of the 16-bit classics of yore. We're as interested in it as anybody, but the game has to just come out at this point. Which it will, probably, but only on Xbox Live Arcade – Fish blasphemously stated on Twitter that "it's a console game. for consoles. PCs are for spreadsheets."

Check out the "long screenshot" below for the latest visuals from Fez's development.
