Polytron Corporation’s 2D puzzler Fez is set for release on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita on March 25, the company confirms. It’s a cross-buy title too, meaning you can buy the game one time and play it on all three platforms, with your save following you wherever you go (provided your various PlayStations are Internet-connected, of course). The port doesn’t actually come from Polytron; it’s a product of Blit Interactive’s efforts.
The PlayStation release of Fez isn’t just the series’ first appearance on Sony’s platforms, it’s also – thanks to the Vita release – the first portable version of the game. The game was first released for Xbox 360 in April 2012, with Windows and Linux/OS X releases following in May 2013 and September 2013, respectively.
Fez was conceived and designed by Phil Fish, though the creator left both Polytron and game development as a whole in mid-2013 after a widely reported public outburst on social media relating to his feelings of dissatisfaction with the industry. Fish’s departure led to the cancellation of Fez 2. It’s still unclear what happens next with Polytron. The indie is the gatekeeper for all things Fez, but this PlayStation launch brings the series one step closer to being available on all active gaming platforms.
