I'd be part of those numbers if there was a PC or PS3 version. Instead I'm just waiting patiently.

I will never be part of those numbers because the lead guy behind Fez (Phil Fish) is a complete asshole. Thanks to his insistence on insulting others games/cultures (even the ones his game pretty blatantly rips off), to telling his critics to "suck my dick" and stating that gamers are "the worst f*****g people" I sincerely hope that they don't make much money at all because they most certainly do not deserve it. Probably the most unlikeable jackass in the indie gaming community.

who cares when the game is awesome? i dont care about developers, i care about the games they make.

Fez is brilliant, one of the best games of the generation IMO.

look won't appeal to the masses. Limbo is intriguing for example just because of it's looks.
Shame it isn't on trey as well

Darkieinthemist2375d ago

Wow where did that come from? Someone sounds like he is getting pretty defensive

Haha, bit defensive there?

StupidDude2375d ago

Well, that isn't true at all, but, hey, thanks for playing!

You do know that this is its first day?

Bought it and put in several hours today. The game is well worth the $10 price tag. It's charming and smartly designed (the self-referential atmosphere reminds me of Earthbound), easily more enjoyable than many full price retail games.

I beat the main path. Some of the puzzles are way over my head, but I still find their complexity admirable in this day and age. 2d/3d may have been done before, but not like this and to this games extent. I put like 7 hours into the main game, and found just discovering new areas and the 2d/3d traversal well worth my time.

I don't have a xbox so I won't be able to play it.
