Artifacts

The artifacts in the inventory.

There is a total of four artifacts that can be found in FEZ:
  • The Writing Cube
  • The Counting Cube
  • The Tome Artifact
  • The Skull Artifact

The artifacts serve little to no purpose in the game, other than for vague clues and achievement hunting. The writing and counting cubes show zuish letters, and numbers on each of the six sides. 

The Writing CubeEdit

Writing-cube

The six sides of the writing cube are the six symbols used in the Zuish language. Rotating it at different angles would allow one to see all 24 possible letters.

The shown sides spell out: paeb

The Counting CubeEdit

Counting-cube

The Counting Cube has all six possible configurations of lines on its six sides. By rotating it at different angles, one could show every possible way of representing the numbers 1 through 10 using the Zuish numeral system.

The numbers on the shown sides are: 1, 4, 6, 5

The TomeEdit

Tome-artifact

The tome has the appearance of a very thick book, with a red cover and golden inbound and corners. The symbol representing the third dimension is on the cover in gold.

Inside is a jumble of letters in Zuish script, that when read three-dimensionally, decodes to a poem:

FROM OUT OF NOWHERE 

IMPOSSIBLE VISITORS 

OUR BENEFACTORS 

WATCHING OVER US 

IN THE HIDDEN FOLDS OF SPACE 

IN FRONT OF BEHIND 

GIVE THE GOLDEN GIFT 

A DEEP REVELATION 

OUR EYES WIDE OPEN 

SHAPES TO TESSELLATE 

WITH SACRED GEOMETRY 

AN EMPIRE TO BUILD 

A NEW PERSPECTIVE 

THINGS UNSEENS BUT ALWAYS THERE 

A NEW DIRECTION 

THE HEXAHEDRON 

THE SIXTY FOUR BIT NAME OF GOD 

THE POINT OF ORIGIN 

A PATTERN A CODE 

A DEEP UNDERSTANDING 

A GATE TO THE STARS 

ALL OF TIME AND SPACE 

AND THE SPACE OUTSIDE OF SPACE 

WHERE DOES IT END
