Indie Hit Fez Hitting Steam May 1st

So... Fez IS coming to Steam?

Though Fez developer Phil Fish has gone on record to claim that the game is "a console game, not a PC game… It's a console game on a console. End of story."

Apparently, despite his harsh words, it's not the end of the story. Recently, Fish, in a blog post, stated that Fez would be ported to other platforms, but didn't specify which ones.

Fez has recently received a Steam storefront... so Fish had a change of heart?

According to Steam, Fez will be coming to PC May 1 later this year.

    still no email updates for comments, now onto the comment

    ever sense it was first announded i wanted this game, but i was never going to buy it for a plat form that at some point will die (xbox360) so i never got it for that console.

    but when i hear this guy talk... i can never bring myself to like the guy.

    if this was a team of people, i could get it knowing he was one of many, but knowing most money (if he is porting it himself) is going to him... its hard to swallow.

    its on my wishlist, but ill be hard pressed to pay more than 5$ for it.

    ankit0x1forced console port? I'l rather play tetris


    if he is doing it himself, yea, rather not play it, but if he farmed it out to someone else... you can get some fairly good ports depending on who you farm to

    hopefully the bugs are more ironed out on PC version...

    there was couple of game breaking bugs found on Xbox version but it was never fixed because MS charges for update rollouts after first free update...

    It could be set up for playing on steambox's and require a controller, still counts as 'a console' game then imho =P

    sliemWhat is Fez?


    It's a puzzle platformer. Though most of the gameplay is in 2D, a lot of the puzzles actually operate in a 3D space.

    The name of the game comes from the fact that the main character, Gomez, wears a magical fez hat that allows him to move in 3D.

    Phil Fish is a bit of a personality, but it's good to separate the artist from his work. I highly recommend Fez. It's a great, unique indie game.

    I saw this game and the guy on Indie Game: The Movie and I don't know if it was for dramatization purposes of the film but he came on as a whiny obsessive complaining asshole. Also, from the movie I gathered he has trust issues due to what happened with the lawsuit but he clearly showed he didn't have all the skills needed to make a proper workable game so I'm not expecting Fez to be free of bugs for the Steam version, if he indeed is doing the port alone.

    I recommend the movie to anyone curious on indie game developers, it's a pretty bold decision to complete dedicate your life to a game.

    i have to say it first, still no email updates...

    now, yea i know, like i said, if it was a big company, i could ignore him easily, but he is an indie dev who is either small team or completely on his own... so i cant ignore that i don't like him or his attitude much.
