Fez sells a million, sequel still canned

Fez, the indie darling from Phil Fish and his team at Polytron, has officially sold a million copies.

The 2D platformer/puzzler initially hit the Xbox 360 early last year, and has since come to both Windows and Mac. Polytron wrote on its official site: “We couldn’t have done it without you!” it reads. “Thank you for buying the game!… Thank you for telling your friends about it! Thank you for buying it again when it came out on PC!… Thank you for putting up with the bulls***!”

PlayStation 3, 4 and Vita versions of the game are also due out in the future. The hollow note to all of this is that, while the game is a huge success, its sequel was announced and cancelled earlier this year as Fish tired of negative commentary. Despite this brilliant news on sales, Fez II remains cancelled, with Fish leaving the industry.
