Polytron’s Phil Fish has expressed his bewilderment and excitement at his creation Fez selling over 100,000 copies in just two days on Steam.
“We sold more copies in the first 24 hours of the sale than we had on Steam in the first 3 months since release!” said Fish happily. “And over the course of the full 48 hours, we sold more than we had in our first month on XBLA. It’s been fuckin’ NUTSO.”

Joystiq asked Fish whether he was okay with the fact that all these sales happened when the game was at half-price.
“Yeah I’m a fan!” he said. “Even I can’t find a way to complain about it.”
