This question already has an answer here:
I just started playing Fez for the first time, and I've heard there is a secret code that can be seen throughout the game.
I'd like to know what the codes are saying, but I'm leery of looking it up in case I can figure it out on my own. Also, I don't want to spoil things if the coded text is more of a spoiler/director's commentary sort of thing.
Can this code be learned as you make your way through the game, or is it something that has to be rigorously decoded/googled to understand? Also, is it better to leave it a mystery until the second play-through?
Thank you for not posting spoilers.
