Walk The Streets of Glitch Once More With A Loyal Fan's Ever-Expanding Recreation of the Beloved, Defunct MMO

Revdancat's Glitch map
Janine "Iris Ophelia" Hawkins' ongoing review of gaming and virtual world style

Twitter user and Glitch fan @revdancatt has been working on a rather interesting project since Tiny Speck released assets from their defunct MMO into the public domain last week. It started with a simple HTML5 recreation of Marrakesh Meadow, unveiled just a couple days after the assets were released. While you could move your view of the scene back and forth to observe some rather well implemented parallax scrolling, that was about it. But a few days after that, Rev Dan Catt had released a slightly more expanded version of the world, with street after street connected together. It's all still a bit broken but development is ongoing, so who knows how far this unassuming little recreation could go?

No, there are still no avatars to control, no platforms to jump, no vendors to shop at, no resources to gather. No homes, no sound, no chat, no dozens of other things that made Glitch what it was. Maybe there never will be. But if you would like to revisit some fond memories and favorite locations from the world of Ur, it's well worth your time to explore this project.
