You Can't Un-Launch a Crappy Game...Oh Wait, You Can

Glitch, the casual MMO that's the work of the creators of Flickr and Katamari Damacy, launched with a ton of promise! It also promptly turned out to be a bit rubbish. So rubbish that its developers are "unlaunching" it.

Wonderfully, that's the term they're actually using, dragging Glitch back into beta with a promise to make fundamental changes to the core of the game.

It'll remain open to players 24/7, and the team promise that new content will keep coming, it's just that it'll carry the term "beta" while the big changes are made, and will be re-launched sometime in the future.

Gutsy move, but it's one more games should make! Better to get things right second time around than never get them right at all.

So they're basically going the Final Fantasy 14 route? That's good of them. If a game comes out utterly broken, you should compensate people and then start charging again once it is at least working properly.

I hope they are bold in trying new things and really make the game more fun. :)
