The word is out and it is sad
is over." Tiny Speck
delivered the shocking news today, saying that the 2-D browser title will be closing forever on December 9th. The team said that it is "heartbroken" to have to announce this, and apologized for letting its fans down.
Apparently, the game simply could not find a critical mass large enough to be financially viable. The developers explained it simply: "Unfortunately, Glitch
has not attracted an audience large enough to sustain itself and based on a long period of experimentation and our best estimates, it seems unlikely that it ever would."
While Tiny Speck will continue with a smaller team working on other projects, many of Glitch's
developers are now looking for work elsewhere
. The studio posted a closure FAQ
that included reasoning behind the shutdown and information on how to obtain refunds for money spent on the game.
