Indie darling FEZ has now sold over 1 million units across all platforms, developer Polytron has announced.
The milestone was announced in a blog post full of thank you messages.
"That's right, a cool mil!
And we couldn't have done it without you!
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!
Thank you for boycotting it so well!
Thank you for putting up with the bullsh*t!
Thank you for all your love letters, fan art, cosplays and freakin' tattoos you got, you crazy ba***rds!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
THANKS A MILLION!"
Back in July Fez creator Phil Fish announced that the sequel had been cancelled and that he would be taking an indefinite break from game development.
The announcement followed a series of abusive Tweets after he declined to offer his thoughts on Xbox One policies. This proved to be the final straw for Fish.
"FEZ II is cancelled," he wrote. "i am done. i take the money and i run. this is as much as i can stomach. this is isn't the result of any one thing, but the end of a long, bloody campaign. you win."
