Fez developers calls WiiWare “dismal”

I always enjoy watching developers lash out at certain platforms or publishers, it gives our industry that awesome soap opera feel to it that takes away from the mundane reality of real life.

The latest developer to throw their hat into the “Days of our Lives” ring is Phil Fish, the developer behind the upcoming, and hopefully awesome, Fez.

According to Phil releasing Fez onto WiiWare just wouldn’t be worth their time and effort, or to quote him directly

It’s a dismal system that I don’t want to deal with neither as a customer, nor a developer. No demos? Fuck off.

So not much left to the imagination there then Phil, though he does admit he likes the 3DS but if you are going to be designing a game for that system it needs to be done from scratch and not ported.

Check out this video footage of his upcoming title, Fez

How perfect would that have been on the 3DS but unfortunately we are only getting it on XBLA later this year
