Fez creator Phil Fish has confirmed the cancellation with us via email, saying "Yep. I'm done." No details have been given as to why the game is canceled.

 
Developing...
 
 
 
 
This seems to be a reaction (or tantrum, if you prefer) to comments made by Marcus Beer (the Annoyed Gamer) over on GameTrailers' newest episode of Invisible Walls. He made comments towards Fish and Jonathan Blow, or "BlowFish" as he put it in the video. He responded earlier with a fairly profanity-laden tirade, which I can't post here - search around and you'll find it - but he attracted backlash for this particular (profanity-free) tweet...

His Twitter account is now locked, by the way, which is why I'm posting pictures of said tweets.

And before anyone points it out, yes, that tweet is a line from Futurama.

Still don't think its cancelled, think he's just having a fit and trying to prove (god knows what) a point. He's known for that type of shenanigans.

I said it about this guys attitude in those other threads,and some people wanted to defend him. I guess I was right. the guys in that podcast are calling these guys whiny and ######. what a surprise.

Really, a tempter tantrum from those two... how shocking.

 

Some people are "indie" not because it's the best thing for them and their game, but because no one really wants to work with them.

If this is really the case then all I can do is LOL.  I liked Fez, I might have even played Fez II, but hey, with or without it I'll just find something else to play instead.

Unlikely he'll cancel a game that will make him millions just because he's a whiny baby. If he did, his loss, I doubt many people would truly care.

I don't know much about Blow, besides making Braid, but Fish and Beer both seem like ###### to me.

To clarify, I think Beer is the worse one out of the two in this situation. Who is he to criticize Fish for not offering an opinion on something? He didn't just criticize him, he just insulted him needlessly.

 

called Fish and indie developer Jonathan Blow ?self-styled kings of the indie genre? and said the pair ? whom he called ?Blowfish? were ?bitching and moaning? about a reasonable media request for their reaction to a significant industry development, in essence accusing them of tolerating publicity when it presented them in a favourable light but dismissing the press if it didn't serve their promotional needs.

?Don?t get f**king snicky about it,? Beer said. ?Me, I think the both of you are a pair of tosspots.?

He went further:

?Have you seen these ###### bitch and moan ? Phil Fish in particular,? Beer said. When a panelist offered that Fish seemed ?whiny,? Beer interrupted, ?Whiny? He?s a ######ing ###### most of the time.?

GameTrailers should get rid of Beer for being so unprofessional. All of these petulant, angry game reviewers and opinionists are just annoying. They don't contribute anything of substance to this industry.

There are too many other awesome games out there, that has already made me forget about Fez...

He is a critic, that's what he does.

 

His Angry Gamer videos aren't about professionalism, its just his opinion and criticism of whatever he decides to review. Its not about contribution to gaming community but entertainment.

I personally don't like his videos but it doesn't mean I think what Phil Fish did was the way to go.

 

Phil Fish is a grown man and he did a real life rage quit because someone called him a few names? 

Fish even replies on twitter to tell Beer to go commit suicide.

 

I wasn't a fan of Fez, so I couldn't care less about Fez II but I still think he will make the game down the track.

After-all its all about the money.

Being a critic, which it seems just about anyone can be now, doesn't afford you the right to hurl insults and abuse at people. If you have a legitimate criticism to make, which in this case I don't think he had that, then make it. Honestly, how old is he? Going on a podcast and insulting a guy he's never met. It reflects poorly on GameTrailers to stoop to the lowest common denominator with ###### like this.

 

I'm not the biggest fan of Fish, he seems arrogant and snide, but if some guy I'd never even met (and I don't think Beer has met Blow, either) went on a podcast and insulted me, I would probably tell them to take a long walk off a short cliff too.

 

 

Just my 2 cents

If he wasn't right they probably would, but he is right.

I never really cared for Blowfish.  They seemed like they were always against Microsoft and no matter what they did would be enough.  I mean every Xbox One can be a dev kit now and we will get more info at gamescom and they ripped into Microsoft for it.  They also seemed to treat people like jerks and they were really unkind.  I guess when you act that way you get what you get.

 

I played Fez for a few minutes and got bored and went to play some other demos.  I honestly thought it was boring.

 

If I was going to create something I would at least try to make it interesting.

Shame really, Fez is an absolute classic.

Sad when personalities ruin something.

Agree fully, Fish is a hot headed idiot a lot of the time making rash decisions simply because he cant control something. However as I say, I cant agree more about these damn opinionists, and the whole "im angry" **** is just a ploy to attract young males and college humour tosspots, because the whole dudebro mentality is what sells games.

Im ****ed at Fish and co for this childish and stupid move on a game that is literally one of my all times, but im ****ed at the wider mentalitys that the game industry seems to collect.

This is why we cant have nice things :p

I don't understand why Fish takes The Annoyed Gamer seriously. It's not like he is a journalist or something. He is just your usual "youtube" blogger complaining about everything.
