Acclaimed Xbox LIVE Arcade adventure puzzler FEZ will be released on additional platforms in 2013, co-creator Phil Fish announced in a post reflecting on 2012 on developer Polytron's website.

"2012 was crazy," wrote Fish.

"2011 was also crazy, but 2012 somehow managed to completely out-crazy it.

"We experienced abyssal lows, but also life-affirming highs. Life-changing highs. Really, really high highs. It took everything but we shipped the fucking thing. And it was a success.

"It didn't break any records, but it made more than enough to let me keep doing what I do. So I'm afraid you're stuck with me for a little while longer.

"Even though the game came out some 9-ish months ago now, I don't feel like any of it has really sunken in yet. Between the game and the documentary, too much happened. Too much to process. I feel like I learned something, but I don't know exactly what it is yet. Keep your mouth shut maybe?

"Between Sundance, IGTM, winning the IGF, becoming a notorious racist, the game coming out, the patch incident, becoming a notorious asshole, travelling the world, battling a brutal post-partum depression and finding love, my ears are still ringing."

He added: "2013 is going to be an interesting one, too.

"For one, FEZ will finally be ported to other platforms.

"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."

And beyond porting FEZ to additional platforms the future could hold anything for Fish and Polytron.

"We also have some exciting plans for the soundtrack, and something about a US branch? Wrote Fish.

"Beyond that however, the future is uncertain for Polytron.

"It's just me now. I could do anything with this company, but I don't know what yet."

Indie Game: The Movie is soooo good! I also found Mojang: The Story Of Minecraft to be interesting!

I believe the patch works fine, but only for new save files created after its implementation - and it was the lack of addressing prior saves which was the issue that saw so much vitriol directed at it.

Either way, excellent game. Just a shame Fish reaps any profits pretty much alone... :-/

When my TV/gaming monitor broke down last year I was gonna save some money and wasn't gonna get a replacement, and so silly old me got rid of my 360. When I caved in and got a new TV later on in the year, I was actually tempted to buy a new 360 just to play Fez. Looks like I might not have to lol. Hopefully there'll be ports to other platforms later on this year.

Btw if you guys haven't done so already check out Indie Game: The Movie. Great doco that shows some great behind the scenes stuff behind the game. Really made me root for the guy. Glad to see he finally got the game out and got some great reviews and $$$ from it.

By the way did the whole patching issue get sorted at the end?
