Glitch Free: Art From Closed MMO Enters Public Domain

Tiny Speck announced last night that Glitch is coming to an end: "The live game/world will be closed on December 9th at 8pm Pacific time."

Okay I Have No Idea: New Glitch Video

Jim posted about upcoming 2D browser MMOG Glitch at the start of the year. Back then, it all sounded deeply enigmatic. Developers Tiny Speck (a collection of ex-Flickr founders) stated that the game would see you exploring and growing the minds of 11 giants,and would be targeted at "people with above average intelligence and sophisticated tastes, in their 20s or early 30s." Now, there's a…

Standing On The Minds Of Giants: Glitch

This piece over on CNET, which looks at Tiny Speck's social puzzle MMO, Glitch. I love the idea: "The whole world was spun out of the imagination of 11 great giants," said Stewart Butterfield, the president of Glitch developer Tiny Speck, and better known as the co-founder of Flickr. "So you have to go back into the past, into the world of the giants' imaginations…
