MONTREAL, QC., March 16, 2011 - Trapdoor today announced it has signed a partnership agreement with independent developer POLYTRON to co-publish FEZÔ, POLYTRON’s highly-anticipated downloadable title. The companies will work together to bring FEZ™ to XBLA in 2011.

"We’ve been fans of the game for years now, and wanted to support the project in a meaningful way,"  said Trapdoor founder Ken Schachter. "We're excited to have the opportunity to help bring FEZÔ into the hands of gamers."

“What year is it? " asked POLYTRON co-founder and FEZÔ creator Phil Fish when contacted for a comment. "Who's the president? IT'S BEEN HOW LONG?!?!?!?"

Last November Trapdoor announced a publishing deal with EA Partners for WarpÔ , the company’s first console title. The game premiered alongside FEZÔ at PAX East this March.
