Fez celebrates first birthday, 200,000 sales

Believe it or not, indie darling Fez has been out for one whole year. In those twelve months, the puzzle platformer has sold 200,000 copies on Xbox Live – something creator Phil Fish never really thought would happen.

Happy birthday, Fez!

Happy birthday, Fez!

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!

In a recent blog post, Fish acknowledges the masses “love mail” that he receives at Polytron Corporation (far more than hate mail) – including pictures of cakes, quilts and even plush toys.

But it’s not over yet for Fish and Fez, with the game hitting Windows PCs on May 1st.

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!)

…and after that? Fish isn’t sure. He’s considering his next move, and preparing to spend even more years “driving myself crazy trying to make something beautiful so you can run around in it”.
