Katamari Creator To Work On Glitch MMO

Glitch, yesterday
Keita Takahashi, creator of console favourites Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy, is now working with Canadian development team Tiny Speck on their forthcoming MMO, Glitch. You may have forgotten about Glitch, because things have been a little quite since the startling trailer – which you can and must see here – but it’s in closed beta, and Takahashi has come on board as a freelance advisor of some kind. He’s been blogging about the experience for Famitsu. He writes: “The reason of joining “Glitch”, it looks interesting. To create the game, to live the daily life at foreign country, there are quite interesting for me even if includes many troubles. The another reason is because I could feel similar atmosphere of Glitch and Katamari and NOBY.”

It’ll certainly be interesting to see how this one turns out.
