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.
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
GLITCHED is a mystery and exploration RPG coming to PC, Mac, and Linux. The game features traditional turn based combat with a little bit of spice but will primarily focus on the story and how you change it. This will be done through the ESSENCE SYSTEM, which will track a player's personality and morality. After a glitch appears in the world of SOREN, our unexpected hero, Gus, will become aware of you- the player. Experience fourth wall breaking shenanigans while making decisions that will shape this world

NOTE: This is a demo prototype of the game. It reflects an early development cycle and you can expect changes and improvements to a final version. This version will have some bugs which we will work to fix as soon as possible. We recommend 2 GB of free ram in order to run GLTICHED. A Linux version will be available for the final release only, sorry!
NOTE: If you are prone to seizures or, photosensitive, or prone to flashing lights we recommend the No Effects version. We have worked to make sure that both versions are safe but the No Effects version has any flashing/glitch effect removed. This may also be helpful to low memory computers (Less than 2 GB of ram free which we do not recommend) trying to play.

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!
This is really good, like it's so cute and stuff
when ever i try to do something in the setting menu it always breaks when i leave or try to edit anything please help
It looks a lot like earthbound, but its a great game :)
and I really like earthbound
Aw, I want more. It ended too soon!
Help me I can't play the game.TypeError cannot read property ´passes`of undefined
A fascinating game that takes gameplay mechanics from some of the best indie games ever, blends them together with some new and interesting concepts and gameplay mechanics and comes out with an experience that is both familiar but also wholly unique. A treat to play and an experience I am loathed to pull myself away from. Keep an eye out for this one.
i absolutely loved this game! the idea of it, the characters, the story. such an amazing concept. i wish you the best luck, and i can't wait to play the full version!
Thank developers for that given experience!
I absolutely love the game, even though, I'm pretty picky in terms of this type of games.
Its story just gets into your brain by just starting from almost nowhere and becoming deeper and deeper. I'm almost in a dire need of knowing what happens to the characters by the time I finish a part of a game to have a break.
The game has its fourth wall breaking jokes and dialogs. And it adds to the game so much. I really like it!
Mechanics are pretty simple (at least, for me so far). These texts appearing after I press an object will be the death of me. I'm just so curious to see all the hidden details or just something that character has to say.
A sound design of the game has a good and big place in my heart. I don't know about you, but I find it really atmospheric and pleasing to the ears. And it's not in your face (or ears I should say). And it is a big plus.
An art style is pretty nice. All the details to underline different personalities of aВcharacters are here, even though, it's a minimalistic (or pixelated) artwork.
A little problem I had with key bindings. I've tried to change my buttons and made "Enter" has no control button. So there was no way to change it back. But it's ok. I just deleted my save file so the game resets.
To sum it up, I just want to add the video of mine if someone wants to see actual reactions on the game! I am gonna finish it :D
Esta genial, lo espero en español.
This fourth wall breaking idea is quite clever! And, I definitely enjoyed your demo, so far. The art is stunning and I am curious to what may happen next. With the taste of the Bebo interaction, it makes me wonder if there will be a dark story or unsettling undertones (I mean, apart from what is already present). Seriously, good luck and cannot wait for a full version!
This game is full of fourth wall breaking that are creative and funny. And it's only been 15 minutes to me!
This is my experience so far.
man, this is amazing, you really have to make a spanish version, your game will be VIRAL!!
In the final game we can do a pacifist route like undertale ??
This is fun so far! Dunno how much of the demo I have left to play through, but I already can't wait for the full game :) Feels a lot like Oneshot and Earthbound...love it!
I also am among the crowd of people who made a let's play of this game >.> Hope I did it justice!
I want it in Spanish, please !!! :3
My fiancé has played the demo and has done two videos so far.
We're both enjoying the game so far. I'm not in the videos but I'm still enjoying the game in my own time. :) Good luck with the production of the game! I look forward to seeing more in the future! ^^
I really love this game! And the option to interact with someone while we're in battle is awesome, and kinda reminds me of Undertale. What I most love about it, is the game totally breaks the Fourth Wall, giving the main character the option to interact with US! That was awesome, by far. And this "Mother series" style give it a great retro touch. I can't say anything bad about it. I really love Glitched! <3
The tears! Not because of anything that happened, but because this is the last video since the demo is over. Can't wait for more!
Really enjoyed the demo so far :) News on when we'll get to see more?
Plans to translate to Portuguese?
This game is great and I love it but I've encountered an issue with my second playthrough, where I confirmed key inputs without setting any keys for 'confirm', I figured that I could easily open the settings once the game started but no luck with that and the game uses the same key bindings on the main menu, leaving me with no way to access options or start a new game. I'm going to redownload the demo so there's no worries but I think there should be a way to access the settings during the prologue or have the main menu use the default key inputs, in the chance that someone else makes my dumb mistake.
I started playing this, and I gotta say, it's the best so far.
I'm at the verge of tears right now I dislike the queen she's much too hard for me... I'm thinking about starting the demo over again because I think may have made it impossible for me some how...
Edit: I just want to be able to share my sandwich with Steve...
Here is part 4! Glad you guys seem to love it!
check out my gameplay pretty chill game reminds me of snes games cheers.
