Long-awaited Fez update goes live; widespread game save issue poops the party
At long last, the newest update for the acclaimed puzzle-platformer Fez has gone live, and with it comes a slew of issues (from graphic issues to sound issues to localization issues to save issues, etc.) that have been fixed.
But all is not well is Fez-land. Through some trickery of fate (or just pure bad luck), a new issue has become rather widespread, where the game can read a save file as corrupted after the update has been installed.
In case you're wondering, that's bad.
Upon the discovery of this unsavory issue, developer Polytron addressed those concerned on their website. "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," the developer added. "We'll keep you updated on the situation."
Well, this definitely stinks for the Fez players out there. Hopefully, Polytron will be able to find the solution to this matter, and quick. What are your thoughts on this matter, readers? Feel free to let us know in the comment section below.
