Developer Polytron has handed the first patch of platformer Fez off to Microsoft for certification. The studio promised that the update will mean “crash fixes, recovered save files and a generally smoother Fez experience before the end of the month.” Specific details aren’t available at this time, but Poly says it’ll unveil the exact release date and full list of included changes “soon.”
After many, many years in development, Fez released to heavy fanfare and a strong critical reception back on April 13. It even snagged the top spot in XBLA activity for its first week on the market. Unfortunately, there were a number of reports of corrupted save files, games that crashed for a number of reasons and even incompatibility with certain older Xbox 360s.
