A downloadable game for Windows
The demo and pre-order will be avaible today at 6PM CST!
GLITCHED is a choice-based RPG coming to PC and Mac in Fall 2018.
When a glitch appears in the world of Soren, an unexpected hero, Gus, becomes aware of you- the player. Together with Gus, you will make choices that will shape the story and world around you. Discover the world of Soren and solve the mystery of the glitch. As the story unfolds, Gus might start to question what role you have in his world.
- Essence System
As you make choices, Gus's essence will change. Gus's essence determines his personality and will cause characters to react differently to him. As you meet characters of each essence and watch how Gus changes, the nature of essence will become more clear.
- Real Branching Story
Many choices you make will lead you down different paths. Gus's essence might change how a situation plays out, causing a whole new story to take place.
- Conflict System
Before most battles, you'll be able to sort things out the good old fashion way- by talking. The tension meter will gauge how close you are to resolving the conflict peacefully or how close you are to jumping into a brawl. When multiple characters are involved in a conflict, you may have to pick a side.
- FATE Battles
If a conflict goes bad, you'll be forced to battle. Combat in GLITCHED uses a simple turn-based RPG style, with a twist of cards and energy. When card charges run out, you'll have to refresh decks to keep going. Collect different cards for your many allies and build your dream team.
Talk to Gus to learn more about him and the world. Your friendship with Gus might be important to how he handles certain situations. Gus will also learn more about you as you talk about life, existence, or whatever random thought pops into his head.

Tried this out on my Twitch stream, and man I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. I was a fan of Earthbound as a kid, and it feels like Glitched might be able to hold that kind of charm without going too hard in any direction and falling apart. Looking forward to the full thing!
Hi there! In GLITCHED it seems you are using 16x16 sprites, how did you tweak RPG Maker MV to use these? As when I use sprites of that size they are extremely small in MV?
The demo was good for what I played so far of it, it's a lengthy one compared to others that I've seen where it's about ten minutes or less, a few complaints but nothing bad. I liked it quite a bit.
The demo was interesting, and I was always a fan of the the fourth-wall breaking genres. I'll most definitely get the game once it comes out!
This was fantastic! I really liked it! I'm definitely going to get the full game after it comes out.
if this ever became a game on Nintendo switch I would be ecstatic
When will the game be finished?
Will this have multiple endings? and different confrontations depending on our actions?
How important is the Essence System in the game? I still do not understand it
and good demo, i love it!
I am currently playing the demo and it's lovely! The level of polish and detail is astounding - even though the unique text for every tree will kill me eventually as I frenetically search for every tree in the area haha
(edit: this post originally contained some typos I found, but now I know the right place to submit them!)
There is a link above to report bugs, you can report spelling mistakes there! Thanks for the reports!
Oh! I didn't know typos could be submitted there. I will send the ones I posted here, and when I finish playing the demo I'll compile a list of my findings and submit it as well. Thanks for the tip!
Funny, I saw this game when it was on kickstarter, didn't back it though. Shame.
Decided to cover this game for an episode of 1Game1Minute on my channel. Absolutely loved Glitch; totally devastated that they killed my Bebo. #ripBebo
I'm so excited for the rest of the game!
I'm sorry, I think i have a GLITCH in my system! Can you GyUS check it out?
It's time to fight back... kinda. Sorta. Can you even call these dudes inner demons?
I SWEAR I'LL FINISH IT BEFORE YOU'LL RELEASE IT xD
Will the pre-order include a steam key?
Tried to use the Sanguine Stone at the door in the desert area north from the forest after the bridge, caused a crash!
Try reloading your save and using it again. It crashed for me the first time, but worked the second time.
This happens with a few instances. Should be fixed in tomorrow's update!
same thing happened to me, reloaded and made sure to save before attempting again, it was fine round two.
Hey--I'm playing and loving it! however when melton tells you you cant continue, continue is misspelled.
slick rick at the town meeting misspells involved
Downloading the demo right now, looks very promising!
where is the link, i cant see
I misinterpreted the update but I'm still excited. There aren't enough Earthbound-ish games out there and this fills that void quite well. I remember enjoying the demo a year or so back and I'm still looking forward to playing Glitched as a finished product. Best of luck in regards to development!
love this! can't wait until the game is fully released!
I streamed the game at first than decided to edit it into a video ~ aND BOI!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS GAME TO COME OUT!! AH!! SSSOOO GGGGGOOOOOOOODDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey there, i made two videos on the demo, i really enjoyed it, it was super interesting and i would definitely play the whole game when it comes out =] <3
hey so uh, this might be a problem. i got this while saving before touching one of the yellow stars, this is after i got the cat party member to pass the two tall cat guards. i just went to save, and it gave me this error. you guys might want to figure out what the problem is there.
Seemed very promising. I had fun playing the demo... if only there was more.
Besides, now that's I've read the description and video, I like the idea of an alternative to Undertale that isn't drenched in esoteric themes. Please don't abandon this...
Too short, ended in 12 minutes
OH MY GOD THIS GAME IS AMAZING
this looks great.
I don't know if this has been abandoned or not (hasn't been updated in months assuming that's not outdated), but I found a bug.
Right before you leave the starting town and right after you get your first party member (aside from the protagonist), the game freezes up and there's no response to any key presses including movement, so it broke the game for me. I even tried downloading the build from rpgmaker.net (they were different file sizes, so I thought, hey why not; may as well try it). Transferred the save files over. Same problem happens. Maybe I'd need to replay the game. If that fixes it, wouldn't really mind it, tbh.
Just thought you should know, assuming this is still alive.
Featured the game on Saturday Select, a series where we play promising games in development! I hope Gus eventually grows as a character, not just going by the player's whims.
Did a let's play, amazing game! Can't wait for it's full release in the near future <3
Does in contain glitches?
I honestly can't wait until this game comes out! I played the demo a couple months ago and fell in love with it
Really loved the demo, guys! Perfect pitch with the dialogue, pacing, music comp, character and world design. The original assets are great overall. Strong aesthetic, strong story to build from. You have something special here! I'm glad you got your backing, especially extended for other platforms. Hopefully I'll have the chance to do a full playthrough (with better voices lol) of the finished game on my channel when it's released.
My only feedback at this stage is minor. Be careful about the speed of auto-text. Some lines zipped by too quickly to see let alone read. Those moments are some of the best for humor and NPC character development, so you don't want them missed. Also watch out for typos. They spiked after the first hour and a half or so and it started to pull me out of the story a bit.
There are going to be a lot of comparisons to things like Undertale, Earthbound, etc. and I think Glitched will benefit from that in the long run in terms of word of mouth, but I'd hate to see it get lost in those comparisons, so be careful about how many elements in the game feel/seem derivative.
Anyway, I finished the demo, but I haven't uploaded all of the videos, so I only posted the first one here. I'll update this with the last vid later. Good job and good luck!
OHH H I LOVE IT!!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE FULL VERSION!
Who saw this and thought Earthbound+Undertale?
wonderful game!!! I love the characters, they all seemed to fit the story and did not have any overwhelming personalities that took away from he game (I can definitely say the cats have been my favorite so far haha) Anyways, super excited for the full game! good job!
This game is amazing!
