Didn't he get like a million sales though and he refused to pay $10,000 for the patch, but he'd just made loads of money?
It's a shame I know a lot of people like fez, not me, but not seeing this coming across is grim. Ironically, Fez only sold well on xbox due to Microsoft publishing it... if he wanted to put it the indie games section and hope someone would pick it up over 'Look at how much cleavage we can show without nipples 3: Gameplay still nothing to do with booberella' which is admittedly an amazing game, then good luck to him.
In the grand scheme of things; oh no, what a shame, no more indie games.
Yes you are correct persona above, stuff like minecraft and fez are what would be indie games but are then taken by MS and given special treatment and QA testing etc given a bigger price and labelled arcade - indie games are the 99% rubbish that are released by prepubescent minded idiots, but occasionally they have gems in them - minecraft for instance which are made independently of anyone else.
...and if you tell that to the kids of today, they wont believe you!
