Glitch: A game that will succeed

Glitch is a catchy title for a new web based game that I could actually see myself playing. I’m not a huge game person, but this looks so graphically creative, and intriguing that I could see myself playing and really enjoying it.

It is created by the folks who also founded Flickr. So you know many people will try it out simply based on the creators and the success they had previously. Should be interesting and will obviously utilize popular social media tools to help increase it’s authority and growth.

I haven’t been this excited about playing a video game since Frogger in 1988.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live inside the imaginations of a group of ancient giants, get ready to play Glitch.

A new game that went into alpha testing on Tuesday, as reported exclusively by CNET, Glitch (see related behind-the-scenes feature about its development) is a puzzle-heavy, Web-based social MMO built around sending players billions of years into the past to develop the optimistic future that today seems increasingly unlikely.

“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 and grow…the number of things in the world, grow it in terms of physical dimensions, to make sure the future actually happens. So all the game play takes place in the past inside the world of the giants’ imagination.”
