Polytron: Zynga pitched Fez mobile port

Polytron’s Phil Fish has revealed that Zynga sought out the indie studio with hopes of porting their XBLA platformer Fez to mobile devices.

GI.biz tracked down a series of tweets from the polarizing developer that explained the exchange.

"Zynga approached us to port Fez to mobile. We politely refused. So, look forward to Zynga’s Fex any day now, i guess!" read a post on Polytron’s twitter account.

"It actually happened," Fish claimed when questioned whether there was any truth behind the statement.

If the claims are valid it may indicate that the social games publisher has been looking to expand outside of the casual gaming arena.

Zynga has yet to respond regarding the matter.
