I hate every single thing about this guy. I really hope he doesn't come back, although knowing the narcarcist that he is he probably will show up again..then make his Twitter private and disappear again and repeat.

And he had what was coming to him; if he wasn't a MASSIVE ****head he wouldn't have been doxxed. You reap what you sow.


TBH he was gone already. He hadn't showed his face since the drama occurred so why did he have to be doxxed? He was gone and dealt with. Seems like someone with an grudge decided to finally hack into his account.

The guy may be an idiot but stealing his personal information on that account is still wrong. He reaped what he sowed when his rants blew up in his face.

After he was "hacked", personal information of employees, financial reports of the company, and files of Fez 2, were "leaked". Then, coincidently, the company and IP are up for sale.

Either this guy is a colossal moron or he's pulling a huge sleaseball scam I hope Uncle Sam bends him over hard for

I have had multiple opportunities to buy Fez cheaply but have decided it against it due to his attitude. I don't want to indirectly support him in any way. For someone who only has one reasonably successful game under his belt he sure has a giant ego (a game, might I add that would likely not exist without his programmer friend helping him).

People gave Fez too much praise. The game was cute and fun but all the positive reception completely demolished his ego.


If you saw him in Indie Game:the movie, he was always like this. Pretentious, obnoxious, neurotic... If he isn't seeking professional help, he really should be or next we hear of him will be when he goes nuts and does something harmful to someone.

I don't believe he's sane.


I saw the movie and sure, he's got an undeserved inflated ego, and has made some abrasive comments, but insane? I think that's being a bit hyperbolic.

Apparently, another way of saying "hacked"


No, it means, in short form, someone researched your personal information, either legally or illegally, (address, phone number, etc) and published them in a very public place.

Which I think is an extreme measure unless we're talking about a rapist, genocidal killer etc. - guy makes some abrasive comments, has a huge ego, irks some gamers, so of course the proper course of action is to post his personal details on the Internet. The guy's a jerk, but that's going too far.

The problem is that you're actually working under the assumption it wasn't he himself doing it.
