GamesBeat has tracked Fez's first-day sales (20,000 units sold) and compared that to other hits from the XBLA library. See where Fez is in relation to Braid, Limbo, and Trials HD.
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
those sales really arent great at all......
Better than alot of so called triple A ps3 games sell
Wow where did that come from? Someone sounds like he is getting pretty defensive
Haha, bit defensive there?
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.
If Fez does not sell well this will not be the first time this happens, amazing games like Ico & Shadow of the Colossus didn't sell well either, specially at first.
I don't think it's really had the same marketing as any of those other games, not to mention the release date came out of nowhere. That being said I hope the reviews get it a lot more sales and 20,000 is a great start for something not as advertised. It's one of the most brilliant downloadable games I've played in a long time.
