Waking up in a strange facility, college student Sam takes control of a device called the Catalyst; a device that manipulates space-time and alters physics. Inspired by the critically acclaimed "Portal," players will use the Catalyst to change the laws of physics with whatever they happen to fire upon. Players will walk on water, create floating stepping stones, and much more!

Report article RSS Feed From Propelled Bird to Polytron, Don't leave

Us here at Propelled Bird just want to take the time and express our sorrows and concerns to fellow developer Phil Fish concerning his recent drop from the industry.

Posted by a_beagle on Jul 30th, 2013

Propelled Bird, started by a group of high school students, with little money invested, and absolutely no idea what we were doing, decided to make a game. We went through the hard ships, went through the hoops, and at a point we almost dropped the project. However, this changed after hearing the story of Polytron developer Phil Fish.
Phil, one of a group of developers featured in "Indie Game: the Movie" has the story that could be turned into a movie. Having issues with family health, relationships, and family stress, somehow managed to complete the amazing game Fez. We saw all of his problems, and realized how great the success can be if we just pushed through till the end.
Recently, after a flame war with Marcus Beer, Phil threw in the towel and gave up on Fez 2.
Phil, if you happen to catch this, we just want you to know how much we want you to stay. Our game is only as far as it is due to your success story keeping us pushing on. You can't let the internet's numerous assholes keep you from creating some of the most original content of today. We don't make games for those people, we make it for those who enjoy the game and support the cause, no matter the number.

From one developer to another, we beg you to stay Phil.
