Love him or hate him, Phil Fish can generate a discussion.
"Love him or hate him, Phil Fish can generate a discussion." You mean a baseless controversy?
I didn't like him in Indie Game : The Movie, I don't like him now, and I regret buying his game. There, I generated a discussion too.
I'm grateful I didn't buy his game.
FEZ is a really great game! It's so disappointing that Phil Fish is a total douchenugget. Sometimes you have to pull the creator out of it, and look at the product that was made. FEZ stands on it's own as a great addition to a gamers library.
he seemed kl in indie game but this article was just a chance to flame him. He discounted the game by a dollar and people still complained so he called them ungrateful. When something you make and spent alot of time making is undervalued it pisses you off especially what happened during development
He's a fool for even reading people's stupid comments. Even if it was $0.99, some people would whine. I'll never understand. I keep seeing people who whine about some android games being $2.00 !! It's less than what you'd pay for two bottles of beer! He made it and he can set any price he wants. It's not polite to argue about that, especially since he's an indie developer. If it were EA or Activision, who overpay their army of managers who don't develop anything, than it "might" be ok to whine.
You don't realize who you're talking about yet... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Reading from wikipedia, that patch seems like a no-big-deal to me. The game is short, so what if less than 1% of people would have to start over? Would you pay tens of thousands to fix a problem for less than 1% of people. I wouldn't. I'd rather offer them a refund. By the way, it seems to me like people who commented here don't know many artists. Artists are often a bit crazy (or more than a bit :) ). I know a few who are just like Phil. It's a legitimate type of personality. Creativity always comes with a cost. if you expect a flawless user experience and a technical support, it's obvious you shouldn't buy indie games made by one or two men. Stick with EA and Activision.
2.00 for two bottles of beer... Ireland civies are really getting ****** on the price of beer
This guy doesn't know when to shut up.
Yeah this guy should get over himself.
Big ego and for what? Fez? What a douche.
Phil Fish is an asshat. Hey Phil get over your indie game self. If you really want to see the depths of moron this guy goes to, watch Indie Game on Netflix. He was threatening to kill himself if Fez did not sell. Seriously.
He acts like a douche, then says 'I don't know why people don't like me.' All he did in Indie Gamer was whine, and act like the world was out to get him, and all I have seen him do since is much of the same while acting like he is the games developer messiah. What a tool.
Tell you what, he can play his own game and I will simply not buy it. I will not buy it at $9 or $5. Maybe at $2.50 I will consider it. Honestly, a lot of these big name indie developers need to stop behaving like a jackass, they are just giving indie developers bad names. Notice how the Team Meat guys never come off like assholes and while Notch like to comment on a lot of stuff, he still seems like an alright guy who is just living the dream.
Notch is one of a kind. Nice guy.
