Was Fez a copy of a free flash game??
I am not being critical in any way @ all, just an honest question..Someone sent me a link to this free flash game that looks EXACTLY like Fez does & was released years ago. Was it some sort of troll setup or legitimate? Does anyone know the story behind it? B.T.W. I am not a Phil hater or some crap. just curious on this thing, and looking for answers...

If it's the flash game I think you're talking about (Sky Island?), someone made that saying that it was super easy to make a game like that, trying to drag Phil's name through the mud for Fez taking 5 years of development. It's an extension of the hatred of his character, which I feel is pretty unjust, as the guy has a great deal of talent.

Phil started making Fez in 2007 (the game released in 2012), Sky Island was released online in 2011. So while Sky came out first, Fez had been well established with that visual style.

There's your answer, friend.

Wow!! That IS completely terrible that some people would go that far out of their way to screw w/someone...Phil seems like a genuine guy, & I hope the best for him, thanks for clearing up that nonsense"-"

Many, many people are mocking and trolling Phil and trying to make him look like a jerk, while he's actually a really cool guy. ♥♥♥♥ those people.

Companies rushing out copycat games has been a problem for some indie studios, especially in the mobile market. Given how long Fez was in development, it's very possible that a game copying the visual style came out before Fez actually hit the market.

As for indie game creators, it's silly to make strong opinions over people you don't personally know. It's okay to respectfully disagree with someone's opinion on the industry, but that's no reason to mock or rage at them. These guys work very hard to create some really great and unique games, I think that counts for something.
