The above is a screenshot of unknown provenance that I picked up from another forum purporting to show him announcing that he's selling Fez and his development outfit Polytron, and as we all know he deletes and remakes his twitter about 50 times a month, so it's impossible to verify, but it seems pretty legit.

I say good riddance to this fool. I truly hope we never see or hear another word from him ever again.

I hope this is true. I'm tired of hearing about the guy.

The story in the link is supposedly the reason for his leaving this time.

Let's be realistic though. Someone this loud and obnoxious, and whose personal politics dovetail with those of the video game "journalist" blogging cartels, will always have a giant platform to spew his insane garbage from. He's basically the Sarah Palin of indie gaming and the Kotaku's, the Eurogamer's, the Rockpapershotgun's and the Escapist's are, collectively, the Fox News.

That reminds me, wasn't his company and another planning on making a game together? (Finji, iirc.)

In fact, aren't there other members in the company?
Sounds awfully fishy that he just up and decides to sell it and nobody inside is complaining about it.

Was that pun intentional?
