I haven't written about Glitchspace since finding it, so I imagine a lot of you forgot about it! Glitchspace is now on Steam's Early Access section in the hopes of raising more funds.

About

Glitchspace is a first person programming game that's centred around a visual programming mechanic.

Set in a cyberspace world, you are trying to find a place known as Glitchspace - a by-product of cyberspace and its various glitches. A world that would allow for infinite possibilities, and access across all systems in cyberspace through exploitation.

Through problem solving, it's up to you how you approach the in-game challenges; find glitches in the cyberspace world, and exploit them in various different ways, allowing for a emergent play experience.

Easily one of the most interesting games i've come across this year, it's quite surprising.

Some things you can do to objects to continue:

  • Apply a force to an object, moving it out of the way.
  • Scale an object down to make it the correct height for jumping on.
  • Duplicate and move an object to create stairs, or floating platforms.
  • Make an object have no collisions to pass through it.
  • Change the physical properties of an object.
  • Make an object move when you touch another object.
  • Replicate the functionality of the Portal, and Gravity gun.

For those of you who like to keep your games together you can now grab it on Steam. It is also available at IndieGameStand and Itch.io for the stand-alone DRM free downloads.

This is really interesting -- really like the concept! Ironically, it's a bit glitchy at the moment. Some visual "twichiness" I don't think is supposed to be there.

Embracing bug=feature ideology. Visionary indeed xD
