Polytron, the publishers of well received Fez has officially stopped all production on the sequel, Fez 2. This news was verified by creator Phil Fish.
What is Fez?
The original Fez, a game that was spotlighted in Indie Game: The Movie, came out to rave reviews from most gaming websites, to include reviews from GameSkinny.com. The scores ranged from 8-9 out of 10, which for the industry usually means that a sequel is expected. The game first released on Xbox Live Arcade and involved manipulating your environment to open new ways to reach your goals. Your main character is a little white human-like individual named Gomez that is given a magical fez (that’s a hat) that allows you to see your two-dimensional (2D) world in three dimensions (3D).
What happened to Fez 2?
No official word has been announced, but it could be that Mr. Fish is not all too happy with Microsoft’s back and forth when it comes to indie game developers. Will we maybe see Polytron make a debut on the PS4 this year?
