Game Info & Fact Sheet


Game Description


GLITCHED is a mystery and exploration RPG coming to PC, Mac, and Linux. Join forces with Gus, the game's protagonist, and help him stay sane as he comes to terms with his meager existence in the video game world of GLITCHED. I mean it's not everyday that one wakes to find their reality is just a bunch of ones and zeros. 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 our ESSENCE SYSTEM, which will track a player's personality and morality. This system will provide each player a unique experience. By exploring the world in their own way, each player will generate points towards six different ESSENCE alignments. These alignments are integral to the world of Soren and serve as personality types which will impact how the characters, story, and world interact with you.

After a glitch appears in the world of SOREN, our unexpected hero Gus will become aware of you- the player. Join forces to explore this strange world together. Experience fourth wall breaking shenanigans while uncovering the mystery behind it all.

Essence System

In GLITCHED, we have created the ESSENCE SYSTEM to let players decide what matters and why. How players interact with NPCs, explore the environment, converse with Gus, and engage in combat will earn them points towards one of six Essence Alignments. Gus will change throughout the game based on whichever alignment currently has the most points. Every character in Soren has their own Essence, and each will interact with Gus accordingly. 

Each Essence focuses on certain character traits and ideologies. No Essence is good or evil, but instead explains the reasons behind player's actions. Through meeting and talking to different NPCs, players will get a better sense of what each ESSENCE is about. Below are short descriptions of each ESSENCE to get you started:
