It's an offshoot of the infamous waterfall area with all the secrets in it. Here's what it looks like:

The inscription up top reads:

Please answer this security question. What's my name?

Security question hint: my first half is what it is. my second half is half of what made it.

As for the letter blocks below, you've got S, T, Z, M, T, U/V, N, R, F, B, I, H, A, E, H, S


Clearly the hint is important, but I guess I don't have a mind for riddles like this. Anyone else gotten to this part and figured it out?

Have you been to the waterfall area with the multiple secrets? If you go up from there, you'll come to a shady area with a stone pillar and a fox jumping over a dog. The inscription on the stone reads "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" providing a complete translation of the Fez alphabet.

Fair enough, but what side do you start on and what direction do you rotate?

I'm in the same room and I'm beginning to think it's too much of a coincidence that one of the words you can spell with those letters is "fish"...

Half of what made it = father?

Good guess but with the way the blocks work you can only have one F or one R not both. I tried MOTHER and it doesn't work, probably because there are two spare letters.

So let's break it down then. There are eight blocks in total, each with four (or five in some cases due to duplicate symbols) possible letter configurations:

1. A G M S
2. A G M S
3. B H N T
4. B H N T
5. B H N T
6. C I O U V
7. E K Q X Z
8. F L R Y

(Note this is not the order of the blocks, just the way I chose to sort them.)

I'm at a loss...

Assuming you can rearrage the blocks, my best guess is ambience/ambient music/musical, but I don't have the game and I'm not sure how these extra letters might work. :(

Now, I don't even have the game, and I suck at riddles :P, but this hint:
"my first half is what it is. my second half is half of what made it."
Makes me think that it's talking about the game, and who made it.

GameFish or GameTron (as in half of Polytron)

Is it possible to spell either of those out?

... Yeah, I'm sorry. That makes no sense, heh.

If you notice that the blocks slightly change colour to a darker shade when you go to the "back" of them, that leads me to believe you should only take the front of the blocks.

Which means you've got:

G T Z M T U/V N R under the first "panel", and

M N K K/Q S N O H L for the second.

I think that means you have to line up the first 8 blocks (not necessarily all 8) for the first half, the second eight for the second half.

Only problem with this theory is that it doesn't seem to work either. I'm terrible at anagram, but I can't come up with anything.
Isn't that right, Zach?
