How old is Phil Fish?

#1 Edited by Mark (86 posts) -

I'm watching Indie game: the movie, and he's explaining something, but it doesn't sound quite right, so, does any one know how old this amazing creator of Fez is?

I think he's passed the age of consent, go for it if that's your thing.

If I'm thinking of the same part of the movie that you are, then I'm pretty sure he meant '88, not '98.

He definitely meant '98, making him 14 in human years, which is like 37 in fish years. He looks young for his fish-age.

I'm watching it too & he said he was 4 in '98? Making him the same age as me, 18. If that's the case he started making Fez when he was just 15. Doesn't sound right to me so I think he meant '88

He's just a boy.

Which would make him just a little older than me, meaning he's around 23 or 24. I am 20.

He's old.

Well he could very well be 18...

Considering he started working on Fez in like the 1400s, he's probably like a billion years old by now. That's how math works, right?

He looks pretty old to me.

Old enough to be a prick and have people dislike him on the Internet. 
  
Fuck.

That really narrows it down, doesn't it?

When I heard him say 98 I was very confused, until he brought out his old Apple ii

Yessir, thanks for reaffirming what I figured - isn't it kind of a huge thing to get wrong on a documentary though?

Have you played Fez? A fifteen year old for three years couldn't make something like that. Besides, I doubt the Canadian government would grant him and his partner money...

This seems the most likely. I'm happy to know this tweet/quote exists, thank you.

That was a macintosh classic! (Apple ii would make some sense in 1988 though..)

I'm surprised he didn't mention his age in the movie, and it's just such a weird part to mess up on a documentary..

There was some weird stuff with his parents getting sick that really does give credit to him being over 18 though.

Even so, to say you were 4 in 1998 getting a NES for Christmas when a whole generation has passed and the NES had been rather faded out seems an odd bit to mess up.. This whole part resinated with me, as I received a Genesis when I was 4 (which was like 1994) and an n64 in 1998, it just strikes everything as super weird...

Once he shows the Apple II, he says he and and his dad made a game in 93' so yeah he either said or meant 88' not 98', making him either 27 or 28.

On a side note I love how much nerd rage this dude causes. All along he is just like most of you, pretentious and opinionated. Only he has a spotlight while you just have a message board. I like the guy and I hope he stays relevant for a while. I want to see what other cool shit exists in his brain.
