New Fez Patch Corrupts Save Files
A recent patch for indie puzzle-platformer Fez fixes a number of glitches and exploits, but has had the inadvertent, minor side effect of… corrupting your save file.
According to the developers:
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.
Given the phrasing, it seems the save file isn’t actually corrupted, only seen to be corrupted by the game. Microsoft has since pulled the patch from LIVE, so if you haven’t already been affected by the patch, you’re in the clear, and Polytron is working find out what went wrong and how to fix it — ie, to patch the patch — as soon as possible.
