You can now buy into the Elite Dangerous beta

Paying for early access to a game now seems the norm, and whilst I've no objection to the concept, I've rarely put money down for a game that's still in alpha. Especially not when that alpha access costs £200. Elite Da...

Sign up for Epic Games' Fortnite alpha

Epic has kept mostly quiet about Fortnite for years now and in that time I've gone from being excited to not caring at all to really, really caring. Now that the studio has opened alpha sign-ups and shared a bunch of informat...

More alpha footage of Mega Ma--I Mean Mighty No. 9: It's great

I've kept up cold indifference towards Mega Man 9 -- I mean Mighty No. 9 -- since its announcement and Kickstarter success. With the recent alpha footage coming out, though, I'm sold. Look how gorgeous those animations are. Look how smooth. Mega Man is dead. Long live Mighty No. 9. Capcom, you need to get right. The last six years have not been good compared to the six prior.

The devs of Glitchspace want to make programming fun and cool photo
The devs of Glitchspace want to make programming fun and cool
by Alessandro Fillari



One of the benefits of being at the Game Developers Conference is being able to meet the talent behind such inventive and quirky games. While many of the heavy hitters get most of the attention, there's plenty of other titles that will make you look twice. Many of which offer something a bit different and bizarre, such as Glitchspace.

Glitchspace is an action/adventure platformer focusing on emergent gameplay within a digital world. Currently released in paid Alpha form, players must trek through a series of devious and mind-bending puzzles that take advantage of the environment, while using your programming skills to traverse the ever changing landscape of cyberspace.

Yes, programming is a major part of the game, and it's actually fairly simple to use. Now before you freak out, you're not asked to type out lines of code on the spot, it's much more interesting than that. In Glitchspace, your character in the digital world possesses a gun that allows them to manipulate special glitched platforms and other objects in the world. You can assign special programmed 'objects' to these glitches, which can manipulate the properties of the environment.

Can you work out the Glitchspace?

I really like the idea of glitches as a form of artistic exprestion, especially in videogames. Whether it's the opening of Fez or the memory glitches in Remember Me, there's something about our supposedly perfect digital uni...
