FEZ Sells 200,000 Units in One Year – Indie Platformer Releasing on May 1st for Steam
So play it. Legally of course.
According to a post on indie developer Polytron’s blog, “Since it came out last year, FEZ has now sold 200,000 units on XBLA alone. Which is completely f**king crazy when you think about it. Thank you for that!”
It’s pretty amazing when you consider that the game has released only on Xbox Live and was made using the XNA tools in an 8-bit style similar to that of old-school platformers.
“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!)”
FEZ will be releasing on Steam for those interested in playing it on PC. Announced back in 2009, the game had a long-winding development that saw it release only in 2012.
