Fez developer Polytron is warning players not to install the patch that released today.
The update contains bug fixes and other tweaks, but players are nowreporting corrupt save files as an unintended result of installing the patch.
"We're floored that this wasn't found in testing," wrote programmer Renaud Bedard.
Deleting the Xbox 360's system cache "should" resolve the issue, according to Bedard, but otherwise "there is no known workaround" at this time.
