Fez, the downloadable puzzle-platform game from Phil Fish and independent Canadian studio Polytron, has now sold more than 1 million copies across all platforms, the developer announced today. The game originally launched in April 2012 for Xbox 360, before coming to PC, Mac, and Linux. PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions are in development, though no release dates have been announced for the Sony versions.

"Thanks a million," Polytron said in a statement today on its website.

"Thank you for buying the game! Thank you for stealing it! Thank you for telling your friends about it! Thank you for buying it again when it came out on PC!" the statement goes on. "Thank you for boycotting it so well! Thank you for putting up with the bullshit! Thank you for all your love letters, fan art, cosplays and freakin’ tattoos you got, you crazy bastards!"

Fez's development was chronicled in last year's independent film Indie Game: The Movie. Don't expect a sequel anytime soon, as controversial creator Fish announced this summer that Fez II was canceled. Alongside the cancellation, Fish announced that he would quit the industry altogether. His status at Polytron currently is unknown.
