Fez designer Phil Fish has not had the most pleasant of experiences in the game development industry, and it has only become worse over the weekend. His company, Polytron, has been compromised by an unidentified hacker; causing a large amount of private information to be stolen.
The Polytron website, Twitter, and company Dropbox were all accessed by the hacker; who retrieved and made public email accounts, passwords, banking information and other records. Some commenters on the issue were wondering why sensitive company information was being stored on Dropbox instead of a private server. Arguably, it could have been lax security practices that allowed the attack to be so successful.
Fish has made it known that he intends to sell the Fez IP and Polytron. Apparently he will entertain any reasonable offer and won’t be asking too many questions as he makes his exit from the game dev industry. He has also quit Twitter again after making the announcement; the second time Fish has done so after announcing the cancellation of the much awaited Fez 2. Polytron’s website and Twitter account are similarly offline.
