Fez Patch Released, Might Kill Your Save Files

Polytron calls the update "kinda broken."

Indie darling Fez now has a major title update (aka patch) out on XBLA that adds some performance improvements, fixes some crashes and glitches, and even corrects some errors in the French localization. You know, all the things patches are supposed to do. What patches aren't supposed to do, however, is corrupt your save files.

"THE PATCH IS KINDA BROKEN," wrote a message on the Polytron Twitter account. "Reports of savefile corruption. We advise against installing it unless you already can't play the game."

An update on the Polytron website further clarified the situation. "There is an issue that seems fairly widespread where the save file can be seen as corrupted by the game after installing the patch. We're floored that this wasn't found in testing."

For the moment, users who encounter this problem can delete their system cache, which should resolve the issue. If that doesn't work, though, there isn't another workaround.

Polytron says it will keep everybody updated on the situation.

They're not the only ones with faulty updates.

Is he gonna blame the Japanese for this?

Don't be suprised if he does.

Ive maxed that game out to the best of my knowledge thankfully, however have they said they are planning to remove the update from download or what since many will not see this and make the mistake of downloading it.

I have no idea what's going on. Just came here because of the cute icon. d'aww

Kind of puts the whole Diablo III 'no exp' patchbug in perspective..

No one ever comments on the thousands of patches that go fine. Game media is biased against patches.

So much this, all patches have to be godlike or horrible in order for anyone to really care.
