In development for two years and having been completely rebuilt from the ground up during the past eight months, we’re hoping Glitchspace isn’t literally a space for glitches. That’s a feeble attempt at humor.

Okay, getting serious now, Glitchspace is a puzzle game in which you progress by manipulating environmental geometry while solving puzzles and discovering key programming concepts. You actually reprogram the game’s Mondrian1-inspired abstract cyberspace world by stretching, scaling, rotating, manipulating and creating to unlock its secrets.

Developer Ronan Quigley: Getting Glitchspace to this stage has seen over two years of countless iteration and experimentation for us, and was a huge creative and financial risk. But in doing so, the processes that we went through in developing this update have been instrumental in rediscovering the essence of our game and we’re looking forward to taking what we’ve learned from 2.0 into subsequent updates up until the game’s full release.

Glitchspace is to be released on PC/Windows, Mac and Linux in 2016. Early Access, including Oculus Rift Support (DK1 and DK2), is available on Steam.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
