Glitch is a Flash-based massively-multiplayer online game launching in early 2011. The creators explain that, “It takes place inside the minds of eleven peculiarly imaginative Giants. You choose how to grow and shape the world: building and developing, learning new skills, collaborating or competing with everyone else in one enormous, ever-changing, persistent world.”
The game, which sports some distinctive graphics, is developed by Vancouver and San Francisco-based Tiny Speck, which is run by Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield. The NY Times published an article earlier this week about Butterfield, and reports that his fledgling company has raised $6.5 million to create on-line games.
