Fez Going Multiplatform in 2013

The popular Xbox Live Arcade indie game Fez will finally be coming to additional platforms in 2013, according to a post by creator Phil Fish on the Polytron website.

No details on what platforms Fez will be ported to have been given. The blog post was a look back at 2012 and forward to 2013 for the developer.

“2013 is going to be an interesting one,” Fish wrote. “For one, FEZ will finally be ported to other platforms.”

[adsense250itp]The common sense assumption is Fez will make the jump (pun intended) to PC via Steam. Super Meat Boy, an indie title which has been referenced by Fish in previous interviews, went from XBLA to Steam and gained considerable success.

Fish once said Fez a couch and controller experience but now appears to be changing his tone. Of course, with Steam’s Big Picture Mode now live, Fez can still be played with a controller on the couch through Steam. His vague declaration of bringing Fez to additional platforms also leaves the door open for a release on mobile devices and the PlayStation Network.

Fez released in April 2012 to great fanfare. The game revolves around Gomez, a 2D creature in a 2D environment. In a plot worthy of a Wreck It Ralph sequel, Gomez discovers a Hexahedron that gives him a fez hat. The Hexahedron breaks, causing the game to glitch. Gomez must explore the now rotating world in order to collect the Hexahedron pieces.

In addition to the game’s initial success, Fez got some extra attention when it was featured in the documentary, Indie Game: The Movie. The film, released in June, shows the struggles of indie developers. Fish and his development of Fez is featured.

Fez received a 98 percent rating and earned an Editor’s Choice Award from Gaming Illustrated in a review by Tommy Blashaw. The Fez review can be found here.
