FEZ has just become the latest indie sensation to cross the one million sales marker. A year and a half after it first launched on the Xbox Live Arcade, Phil Fish and Polytron Corporation’s indie darling continues to be a hit throughout the world.
Phil Fish excitedly thanked everyone who got the game to this point in a post on Polyton’s official website.
FEZ has now sold over a million units across all platforms.
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, thank you, thank you!
THANKS A MILLION!
Sales had been relatively impressive at first as an Xbox Live Arcade title with 200,000 copies being sold in 2013 alone. However, since finding other platforms to be released on, like the PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Steam and Humble Bundle, the figures have skyrocketed. In fact, the game sold over 105,000 copies on its first Steam holiday sale in just two days.
For what it’s worth, FEZ has been a highlight of the indie world since homegrown games started taking off. It’s worth checking out if you haven’t already done so, and it should be relatively cheap over the course of a holiday sale. Give it a download to find out what all the fuss is about.
As for Phil Fish and Polytron, hopefully they take that thankful attitude and put it back to good use in getting the cancelled Fez II restarted.
