Fez sells over a million units

Polytron's indie puzzler crosses a big milestone

Fez developer Polytron has announced that its platforming puzzle game, Fez, has sold over a million units on all platforms.

"Fez has now sold over a million unit across all platforms," said the developer in a post on their official site. "That's right, a cool mil! And we couldn't have done it without you! Thank you for buying the game! Thank you for stealing it! Thank you for telling your friends about it! Thank you for buying it again when it came out on PC! Thank you for boycotting it so well! 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! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Despite the sales of the first Fez, there was no word on resuming development on its sequel. Fez II was cancelled back in July, when Polytron's Phil Fish decided that he had enough of dealing with a "long, bloody campaign" of abuse due to the success of Fez and his outspoken nature. Fez is still coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita, with the ports being handled by Blit Software.
