Fez turns five today. And more than just a quick birthday celebration and some reminiscing, Polytron has shared that an iOS version of its perspective-shifting puzzle-platformer is in the works for this year. I can't say I'm especially int...

The final update for Fez on PC and Mac is a doozy

One of these days, I need to play Fez again. It's been long enough that, aside from a couple of area themes like the "Virtual Boy red and black"-looking sewers and the Disasterpeace soundtrack, I don't really remember anything concrete abou...

Oh my gosh, this Fez vinyl!

I was checked out for the day when I saw this vinyl set for Fez, or so I thought. It's so dang good! Disasterpeace is one of my favorite musicians working in games right now, and the Fez soundtrack is among his best work, easily. To have it...

A statement from Phil Fish

Full disclosure - I have met Phil Fish on one occasion. We bickered a little bit about if Fez would be a good fit for Nintendo 3DS, (I thought it would be good, Fish disagreed) but there was no hostility there. I was excited about his ...

This is Phil Fish explains the phenomenon of Phil Fish

I never got the hate for Phil Fish. Which is to say I understood it, but thought it was overblown and dumb. This video does a tidy job of explaining why. Basically, it's the internet's fault. And everyone that isn't Phil Fish. And Phil Fis...

Fez is heading to PS3, PS4 and Vita on March 25

Fez was a fantastic game, but it was sadly limited to just the PC and Xbox Live platforms. Now Sony is getting in on some Fez love later this month, as it's coming to the PS3, PS4, and Vita on March 25th. Developer Polytron has confirmed Cr...

The Humble Store has a set of daily deals going on right now that I hope you'll see before it's too late. Most notably, there's Fez for $3.99. If not for the sense of discovery or lovely pixel art, do it for Disasterpeace's sublime soundtra...

Polytron 'working with Sony,' Fez Mac/Linux ports coming

It was shocking to see Fez designer Phil Fish announce both his departure from the games industry and the cancellation of FEZ II, a project we knew little about but one I really would've liked to see come to fruition. The news also came as ...

Fez, success, and serving the project with Disasterpeace

Last week on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we were treated to the company of Rich "Disasterpeace" Vreeland, most well know for his work on Fez, Krunch, Runner2, Bonk, and... yikes, so many other games. If I tried to list them all it would tur...

Phil Fish: Microsoft doesn't want indies on Xbox One

Fez 2 was one of the most surprising announcements of E3. It was also arguably the most cryptic. Outside of a short teaser trailer, little was revealed about Polytron's forthcoming project -- platforms least of all. Speaking with Polygon on...
