Children of Ur and Eleven join forces to create the ultimate Glitch revival

Teamwork!

The process of rebuilding the social and non-combat sandbox MMO Glitch has been a slow one. It’s been one that attracted a deep well of talent, though, as multiple separate revival projects were in the works to bring the game back in a big way. Among them were Children of Ur and Eleven, both working separately to restore the shutdown title… but no longer, because now both teams are combining their forces to create one singular revival project.

According to the official announcement, this merging will ultimately still be dubbed Eleven but will feature the rebuilt, non-Flash client from Children of Ur and a more expansive philosophy espoused by that same design team. The result should be a new and improved version of Glitch, one running on more modern architecture and with better overall design while staying true to the roots of the game itself. A good thing for the quality of the games as a whole and for the future of the Glitch revival efforts.

Seriously some of the best gaming news this year. I played Glitch for hundreds of hours, spent money in cash shop, etc. I miss this game. So glad they are combining forces to make this a reality. Where do i go to throw money at it?

Very excited for this – was MOP’s Andy who noticed it! I feel like there’s a strong lesson here in swallowing pride and merging teams for the good of the actual game.

It was a toy of wonder, not a violent slot machine.

I hope to be reading more about their efforts and progress here.Missed Glitch when it was around, will not make the same mistake again if it comes back.

And all the emulator projects! Imagine how huge it would be if all the SWG emulators got together and did just three emus, one for each time period, instead of dozens all spread out.

I didn’t play Glitch, but saw great write-ups on it. Sounds like it would be fun. Maybe I’ll get a second chance. : )
