With the new patch for the browser-based title, testers will encounter many more NPCs and have an easier time navigating the world thanks to GPS directions and teleports. The UI has been tweaked as well, with new options such as colorful emoticons. There are many other small additions, such as dev name tags and salmen (Glitch spelling) trying to swim without water.
The Children of Ur project started up back in December 2013 after Glitch’s shutdown and subsequent release of its art assets. One other Glitch spin-off, Eleven, is also attempting to emulate the spirit and style of the original game and is also in early testing.
