FEZ OUT NOW ON PSN

It’s been a long time coming, but today FEZ is finally coming to PlayStation! Thanks to the hard work by our friends over at BlitWorks, you can now cross-buy and cross-save on every PlayStation platform!

We’re very excited for the game to find a new audience on Sony’s machines, and for you to enjoy the world we built.

FEZ LAUNCHING ON EVERY PLAY STATION PLATFORM MARCH 25TH!

FEZ_SPRING_BLOG_POLYTRON

It’s finally happening! FEZ is coming out on PlayStation platforms on March 25th! PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PS VITA.  All of ‘em!

Not only that, but any version purchased gives you access to the other two. Complete with shared save files!

We’re all very excited for FEZ to reach a new, wider audience. We believe these are some of the best versions of the game so far. PS4 fans are in for a particularly smooth ride, while Vita owners get to enjoy the first portable version of the game!

But of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of our friends at Sony and BlitWorks, who did an amazing job.

We hope you enjoy the work that went into these 3 new versions of the game.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT’S BEEN A YEAR?!?!

A WORD FROM PHIL:

FEZ was released a year ago today. A fact i find impossible to believe. But i’ve checked the calendar. I’ve done the math, and it adds up.

FEZ was released a year ago today.

A year ago i was in tennessee with my girlfriend. Today, i am in tennessee with my girlfriend. (things have been weirdly symmetrical like that lately) But life couldn’t be more different now. It’s been a truly transformative year. Suddenly becoming so loved and so hated by so many teaches you some humility. Or at least some things you didn’t know about yourself. I feel like a different person now. A much, much less crazy person. A much happier person. It’s been a fantastic year.

Thank you for that!

The game really found its audience (or the audience found it?). Everyday we get far more love mail than hate mail. Every other day people send us fan art, or a picture of a gomez cake, or a quilt they made, a Drawing, a plushie. seeing people’s notebooks filled with deconstructions of the puzzles and mysteries i had so much fun putting together has been a particularly rewarding experience.

Thank you for that!

Since it came out last year, FEZ has now sold 200,000 units on XBLA alone. Which is completely fucking crazy when you think about it.

Thank you for that!

And now we’re gearing up for the PC release on may 1st, where we’re hoping the game will reach more people than ever before! We’re super excited to finally set the game free on all these other platforms. If you haven’t played it yet, i hope you will! (steal it if you must!)

Thank you in advance for that!

But most importantly, the success of the game is allowing me to take my time to consider my next move and spend years driving myself crazy trying to make something beautiful so you can run around in it.

Something few of us can afford.

Thank you for THAT.

A WORD FROM RENAUD:

Even though I left Polytron a while ago, FEZ is that kind of elastic string that pulls you back every once in a while.

I’ve been hard at work on the PC version and I’m very happy that the game will finally reach a broader audience.

Working on FEZ has been equal parts amazing and terrifying, but it’s completely overwhelming to see what it has become and how many people it’s touched. It was such an amazing luck to meet Phil five and a half years ago, and what a ride it’s been.

Thanks a million for your support and touching emails; even though we’ve been pretty crappy at answering emails, we do read a whole lot of them!

And thanks for enjoying the game.

UPDATE IS LIVE

(I’ve removed the “updates” from this post for clarity, tl;dr but for those who missed it : the patch came live on June 22nd, caused save corruption issues on upgrade for some users, was pulled from Xbox LIVE in a panic some hours later, and then the patch came back live on July 19th.)

The title update (MS lingo for “patch”) is OUT NOW!
I’d like to thank everyone that emailed us with their problems, without your help this would’ve taken a lot more time and would’ve been generally more painful. And sorry if I haven’t answered every single one of you, sometimes I just had nothing to add or it just fell through. We got a LOT of emails.

You can view the complete list of fixed issues after the break!
Please note that some of these fix descriptions contain spoilers, so you may not want to go through them if you haven’t completed the game.

FEZ ISSUES?

May 2013 update :

For issues with the PC version, use this support page instead of posting here or emailing the fez support email, as it’s much easier to track. Thanks!

August 4th 2012 update :
There is one known crash with the patch : if you save in the “waterfall” level and exit and restart the game, it freezes.

The only workaround for this issue is to clear your system cache, the patch will be uninstalled, and your savefile will load correctly. Then after moving to another level and saving, you will be able to reapply the patch and continue your game.
As far as we know this problem only happens in the waterfall level. Should it happen somewhere else though, this workaround is still valid.

The patch is out now! Read the changelist here.

FEZ had more testing done in the past 24 hours by about TWENTY THOUSAND PEOPLE (!!) than it had in five years. So, as it happens, bugs popped up. Some pretty serious.

A small subset of older Xboxes with smaller hard drives can’t run the game at all. The game has trouble running off a USB stick. Crashes are occurring in specific levels or situations. In a rare situation (exiting the game from the “wall village” interiors), the save file becomes unusable. Nasty stuff.

We will be working internally and with Microsoft on those issues and let you know more later. It makes sense to issue a patch, but we don’t currently have an ETA on it.
If you have a game-breaking problem, let us know Since the patch is released now, we’re not looking for more bug reports. Thanks!

Sorry, and thanks for understanding!
And we’re thrilled to see that the vast majority of you are enjoying the game as it was meant to be.
