Fez coming to other platforms, Polytron announces

Polytron’s Fez, despite being an indie title that’s exclusive to the Xbox 360, was easily one of the best games of the year. It’s no surprise, then, that fans are wondering when Polytron will begin porting the game to other platforms, if it ever does at all. We’ve heard whispers of such ports in the past, but nothing was ever made official… until today, that is.

In a new post on the Polytron blog, Fez creator Phil Fish looks back at the year that was 2012 and what the studio will be doing in the year to come. The first thing on the list for 2013 appears to be porting Fez to other platforms, which is enough to get any indie aficionado excited. “For one, FEZ will finally be ported to other platforms,” Fish wrote. “Yes, I’ve heard you, dozens of people emailing me everyday telling me how much of an idiot I am for not porting FEZ to everything.”

Fish doesn’t say which platforms Fez will be ported to, but it seems the logical choices would be PC and PS3 first. We’ve known for a while now that Fish was plotting a PC port of Fez, so if there’s one platform the game pops up on, that’s likely to be it. After that, the sky’s the limit. Perhaps Polytron will decide to port the game to iOS and Android? We’ll just have to wait and find out.

2013 isn’t only going to be about Fez, though, as Fish says that there are “a couple of new games in the pipeline, of course.” He naturally doesn’t give any details about these games, so Polytron fans have quite a bit to look forward to in 2013. Did Fez make it on your favorite games of 2012 list?
