Fez 2 has been announced by developer Polytron.

No Caption Provided

The existence of the game was first announced at the end of the Horizon Indie Game Conference at E3 2013, with the Polytron website releasing a short teaser video for the game shortly afterward. No specific details on the game were revealed.

Fez was released on the Xbox 360 in 2012, after five years of development, and saw a PC release in 2013. Developer Phil Fish's journey to release the game was chronicled in Indie Game: The Movie.

Polytron announced in April that the original Fez has sold 200,000 units on the Xbox 360.

Fez is a 2D platformer with a pixel art aesthetic style. The game starts with its protagonist, the Fez-wearing Gomez, being given the ability to see in the third dimension.

I don't care who's made it, I'm happy to be getting more Fez. The first one felt kind of magical to me, I felt that kind of giddy excited-to-explore feeling I hadn't really felt since playing my first games

Loved Fez 1, can't wait for another :).
Will definitely check that out when it's near completion although i do wonder where the story of fez could go. Gomez has his 3rd dimension from the first game...so maybe time to dabble with the 4th dimension of time? Mindfuck.

It's certainly never gonna appear on xbox though lol.

@Thanatos2k Phil Fish is a cool dude, and he's my friend. I'm going to sit outside his house whistling the theme song for Fez (wearing a fez of course) until he finishes making Fez 2.

@Thanatos2k he only did the art and the concept/puzzles of Fez anyway. It was programmed 100% by Renaud Bédard

@minfreah5005 @kbaily Last time I checked, the xbox 360s are about as old as time itself - hardware included. They're shit, like your opinion.

Play it on PC mate.

Note to self, play the first Fez. I was holding out that it might show up for my PS3 but I'm probably just going to have to download it on my PC.

Stop hating on Phil. I think he's changed quite a bit. And if not, does it really matter as long as he makes great games?

Some people want to play his games but pirate them. I hope you see the irony in that. At least be consequent and don't play his games at all if his personality is a such a biggie to you.

@killersushi "Fez is a console game, not a PC game. It’s made to be played with a controller, on a couch, on a Saturday morning. To me, that matters; that’s part of the medium. I get so many comments shouting at me that I’m an idiot for not making a PC version. ‘You’d make so much more money! Can’t you see? Meatboy sold more on Steam!’ Good for them. But this matters more to me than sales or revenue. It’s a console game on a console. End of story.” -Phil Fish

Then they released it on Steam. LOL!

@Thanatos2k @killersushi cos people kept asking for it. Damned if u do, damned if u dont.

It definitely feels weird to play on PC. As soon as i plugged my 360 controller in to my PC and played with that, it was sooo much better.

3 years later, the game is announced to come out in 2 years, it comes to that time, and Phil says, in 1 year. :) Phil is actually really good at what he does, and is pasionate about it, he just needs to set reasonable goals for himself.

@SpazldNinjaDude Agreed, but I just learned that he's got a tremendous lack of talent regarding public social skills. He should really think about what he says in public, or at least the consequences of his attitude... Shame, really.

God I hate how the biggest c*ck in the gaming universe is making one of the best indie games...I really want this game, but I dont want to give this arrogant shit any money. If it's only for the Xbox one though, then I guess I wont have to worry about spending any money

I don't get all this flaming against Phil. He might be extremely passionate about his work, but why does people react like that's a bad thing? He created a good, entertaining and successful game, almost by himself. Imagine yourself in his situation: You've got no money, you know you're f***ed if your hard work doesn't sell, and on top of that your old colleague screws you over and gives you a hard time publishing your work. And you people say he's got no reason to complain? That's just ridiculousness at its best.

Keep up the hard work, Phil. You're a talented man.

@Scopperloit he said a bunch of stuff that was then misquoted and u ONLY see those misquotes online (cos they make good headlines when taken out of context). He was also massively stressed which u can see in the indie game movie, which led him to be a bit more curt/brutal than he would otherwise have been.

People not willing to play Fez, or even condemn it, purely on the basis that they hate some of the mis-quotes from the designer is quite simply stupid. You have missed out on one of the most unique games of last year.

@Scopperloit I don't think anyone can honestly say he's talent-less. Fez is a great game, but people hate him because he's a huge asshole. Just check these out:

@HowlPendragon Wow. I had no idea it was this bad. I just assumed all the reactions came from his attitude in the "indie movie". He surely is an extremely misspoken guy.. apparently with certain complexities. I understand now why he gets all this flaming.. o.O

@GSGuy321 The likelyhood of him ever touching xbox live again is, i would say, staggeringly remote. He detested the hoops he had to jump through just to get it released and then the cost of being able to iterate on it being monetarily prohibitive.

I'd wager we'd see it on ps4/PC though.

Fez was a great game, even though my original save froze on me and had to start all over.

Predicting PC, PS4 and PS Vita. Sony are fully commited to indie devs and I think Phil Fish said that his teams had problems with MS with updating the game and stuff. Also, the X1 doesn't allow for self-publishing.
