Ethan Lee is at it again, the hit indie platformer FEZ has released the big 1.2 update that ditches MonoGame for FNA.
Ethan told me directly that he worked on it himself along with Renaud the main FEZ programmer.
In addition to now using FNA it also now uses SDL to drop the need for OpenTK, switch audio library for better CPU performance, uses SDL2 for gamepads, smoother rendering for different refresh rates, no more letterboxing or pillarboxing and more.
Also interesting is that OpenGL calls are now done on a single thread to avoid driver-specific issues and crashes during loading. Another one for Linux is that they added PS4 light bar support for us.
See the release announcement here. Ethan also did his own post about it on G+.
The update for FEZ is now live on Steam.
