Fez is now available on Steam, GOG and the Humble Store. Very interested in picking this up and trying it out. Are you interested in picking up Fez and if you have, how does it play on Windows?

The creator of Fez recommends you pick the game up on the Humble Store as they get more of a cut that way. Humble Store buy comes with a Steam key too, so win/win.

OK, Humble Store it is! I wish it had more platforms, but maybe soon. I definitely plan on picking this up this weekend.

Me too. I have been so busy this week haven't had time to get Fez much less play it! I imagine it will be ported to Mac and Linux soonish am just dropped it on PC soon.

I picked this up on Steam, and had issues with crashing. Curious if you guys (anyone) are having similar issues.

Where was it crashing? There are some people talking about starting it the first time with a lower resolution if it crashes on launch.

Also I'm assuming you don't, but if you have Intel integrated video, you should try updating your drivers.

It crashed a couple times right at the beginning, when you get your fez. I have a Radeon card. I'll give it a try with lower resolution, see if that helps.

So yeah this game is a bit buggy. I haven't had the launch crash, but it has other problems-- crashing frequently for no apparent reason, stuck animations that require restarting the game to get them moving, etc. I think I'm going to give them some time to work those bugs out first. It's too frustrating.

Maybe ill wait to buy it then.

This game has little history with bugs, so I'm not completely disappointed. They did this on the Xbox, and were good about fixing the bugs, eventually. Granted, it should be in a lot better shape than this at the onset, but it is only two guys developing.

True, but its been out for a bit now. But, it seems waiting might be a good thing here.

Might as well.

When in doubt, pause.

Travis   Admin wrote on 05/06/2013 at 03:28am

Actually, they have already fixed the worst bugs apparently. There have already been 4 patches for the PC version since release.

Ill hold out for patch 16. That's my lucky number.
