Fez's Delay Into 2012 Is Today's Aww, Man News

A few more months until our brains melt into pixelated oblivion.

Fez creator Phil Fish announced on Twitter this afternoon his highly anticipated puzzle platformer won't be arriving before the end of the year. Considering how long we've been waiting, hey, why not!

Instead, Fez is now penciled in for early 2012.

Based on what I've seen and played, it should be well worth the wait.

If it helps make the game better, I'm fine with that.

Hmmm never heard of the game. *shrug* looks neat though

Aww man! Still lookin' so forward to this.

I'm all for delays. How that can be a bummer eludes me.

I'm glad. It'll get a lot more coverage when it isnt releasing with the flood of fall games :)

That's a shame.

Disappointing, but with the metric fucktonne of games coming out this year, I think I'll be ok. :)

Posted by Little_Socrates

Actually didn't think it'd come out this year, so that's fine.

I remember first seeing this forever ago on The 1up Show. I've forgotten and remembered it existed several times now. He must be a perfectionist. Well, when the thing finally does come I'll probably play it. Love the look of the world and the mechanic. It just seems like it will be a relaxing & fun adventure.

Posted by tourgen

yeah, move it into next year and try to get some real promotion behind it. It looks cool. I hope it plays well too.

Aww, man...

Mass Effect 3

I'm pretty sure I saw this game 4 years ago so early 2012 doesn't matter that much but I was hoping to finally get my hands on it.

Posted by vexidus

I just hope these delays don't make it fall too far off the radar for most people. Can't wait for it!

Posted by klinkcow

met Phil at Fantastic Fest, super nice guy!

Posted by polyorpheus

Aw shucks. Well, at least that gives time to make the game even better.

Posted by Wraxend

Thought this might happened as Fez had gone a bit quiet recently. I asked the guys on the EU PSblog about if Fez was gonna be coming to the PS3 as Phil Fish had said he was open to the idea of other platforms and they said "they'd be trying to get in touch with him" so hopefully fingers cross this might be why theres a delay.

Awwww man :-(

On the other hand, this is going to make an otherwise (and yet-to-be determined) dry month worthwhile.

Posted by Mesoian

Aww man...all the stuff I wanted to play is getting pushed to next year.

::sigh:: Oh well

Posted by jonnyboy

AWW COME ON!!!

Posted by Silver-Streak

I really hate news like this. I hope it does give it the time to get the polish it deserves.

The title of the article is accurate. Aww man is exactly how I feel.

Posted by Portis

Well, whatever. I've waited 4 years, I can wait another few months (if it doesn't get delayed again anyway.) :P

Posted by Vexxan

Nooooo!

Posted by Jasmes

Amazing god damn music, that alone has me sold.

Posted by ErinIsADrunk

Feel bad man. I've been waiting to play this for so long. I hope Spleunky at least makes to XBLA this year.

Posted by Sabata

Awwww, c'mooooon

Posted by AquaGeneral

It took me a few glances to properly understand the name of this new post. My recommendation is to wrap Aww, Man in quotes; Fez's Delay Into 2012 Is Today's "Aww, Man" News.

Fez is the new Duke Nukem Forever,

Posted by Shuborno

You know what, I have enough games to play this fall. Take your time Mr. Fish. Just try to get it out before Mass Effect 3.

Posted by ProfessorEss

All I really know about Fez is that it's awesome looking. 
 
Don't really know enough about it to be all that bummed out.

Posted by LazerGum

Geez, four years of development? That seems a tad long for the look of the game but I will definitely check it out. It Looks really fresh.

Edited by Cirdain

Wait Wait Wait...... 2012 is next year.. like, 3-5 months???????

Ohhhhh that's not that's not too far to wait. For some reason I forgot that it was so close, I thought it was over a year out.. jeez well. Now I'm Psyched.

Posted by MeatSim

I wouldn't have had time to play this in the big holiday release season anyway.

Posted by KJ869

No explanation why this delay?
