One of this year’s most talked about XBLA game—Fez—has received a long awaited updated from developer Polytron. Amongst the many fixes are better frame rates, fewer crashes and removal of exploits. This is all good to hear, as I’ve wanted to play this game since it came out, but was holding off specifically for this patch.
But not all is well in the plane-shifting world of Phil Fish. While the new patch adds much needed improvements, it also seems to corrupt save games. This edit was added to Polytron’s blog that detailed the fixes:
There is an issue that seems fairly widespread where the save file can be seen as corrupted by the game after installing the patch. We’re floored that this wasn’t found in testing. For the moment, deleting your system cache should resolve the issue, but if that fails, there is no known workaround.We’ll keep you updated on the situation.
Let’s hope for a quick fix, as I’ve been lucky enough to have avoided spoilers of the game. Oh, and for people whose saves are broken. Them too.
