Happy Monday, everyone!
Has anyone else really explored Itch.io? It boasts a way to find and share indie games. It’s a fun site to search around, see what kind of games talented coders, writers, and artists come up with.
Browsing around on Tumblr, I found a post about a game called Glitched. It’s slated to come out to PC and Mac this fall, with releases on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later.
The premise of Glitched is that the main character — Gus — becomes aware of the player. Throughout your journey together, Gus will have conversations with you about reality, self-awareness, the meaning of life. As you have these conversations and make choices for and with Gus, Gus’s personality with change which, in turn, effects how the other characters react to him. Characters will be attracted or repulsed by you and your party depending on how you act, drastically altering the story.
While the main mechanic of the game is to interact with other characters throughout your journey, there are also battles. Battles are simple turn-based RPG-style that include a card system. With the ability to build up your deck and multiple paths to choose, Glitched certainly sounds as if it’ll have plenty of replay value.
It seems like a great game! The demo is out right now, if anyone would like to give it a try. The trailer below showcases a charming, 8-bit pixel-like world for the game, along with decent music:
