“Thank you for boycotting it so well!” says Polytron.
Fez, Polytron’s indie perspective-bending platformer, has sold 1 million copies, and Polytron couldn’t be happier. “Thank you for stealing it!” Polytron trills. “Thank you for putting up with the bullshit! Thank you for all your love letters, fan art, cosplays and freakin’ tattoos you got, you crazy bastards!”
It’s been a long, arduous road, and it’s no surprise if Polytron’s a little punch drunk. What with game-killing patches too expensive to fix on Xbox, rumbles of discontent with Microsoft from creator Phil Fish, followed soon after by Fish’s dramatic exit from gaming, any company’d be a little gun shy by now. No, it didn’t mention Fez 2, probably for good reason.
Congratulations to Polytron, and best of luck to future Fez.
