Back to Beta for Glitch

Recently at GeekMom, we’ve given a lot of coverage to a MMORPG that some of us have gotten hooked on called Glitch. For me, it was my first real taste of online gaming, for others it was another new world to play around in. While I didn’t get too invested in it during beta, in recent weeks I’ve gotten hooked. On Monday night I spent an hour mining in the caverns for rocks to sell. My husband joined me there, he mined and then gave me the rocks. It’s new for us to have this kind of thing to do together. He has always been a gamer and enjoys sharing this with me. We were both shocked to learn yesterday that Glitch is going back into Beta, in effect, being “unlaunched” as they are calling it. This just two months after it came out. You can read what Tiny Speck have to say about it in this blog post on their site. They have identified two major problems that cannot be patched, as I’m told is the norm for online games. Funnily enough, I have encountered one of these problems, while my husband and fellow GeekMoms have encountered the other.
