So, is anyone here actually playing Glitch (http://www.glitch.com)? I'm very intrigued with it, and would love to try it, but they have a very long waiting period. If someone could toss an invite my way, I'd surely appreciate it.
(Oh, said invite should be send to email@example.com, if interested).
fleeb: Nah, I am waiting for account activation, still...
Heh, well, hopefully, we'll get a chance to play together. I sure hope 'fleeb' is still available.
Dunno....fleeb is an extremely popular username, you know. You should act quickly to reserve it.
It is a popular username, as it turns out.
But until I can get into the game, I can't reserve the name.
As a fallback, though, I'll use fleebness.
Looks like I got an invite for Glitch!
Once I'm in, I'll see if I have any invites available.
It's a somewhat bizarre playing game, too. Fourth level already, in the tiny amount of time I've had to play it. Mostly, I've just run around petting, watering, and harvesting stuff, but I can see how this game grows.
I wonder how I might get a hold of the_mgt. I want to extend an invite to him, since he's the one that introduced Glitch to me, but he doesn't seem to monitor Uncensored actively.
Ah, alrighty. I'll look there.
Had been to hospital for almost a week, fleeb.
You can use my emailadress here, though.
oh, the_mg, I hope you and your beloved are allright?(again?)
Thanks, I'll send the invite post-haste. In the game, I'm 'A Fleebness'.
It's sent. You should see it shortly.
I've played the game for nearly a week now, I suppose I should describe it.
Glitch is a Flash/web based game that has a series of maps connected by various nodes grouped by regions. I find the artwork endearing... it varies from nice woodsy sort of environments, mountainous regions, and underground areas, to psychedelic areas that seem inspired by Dr. Seuss.
The game has several skills your character (called a 'glitch') may learn.
One set of skills seems to influence your character's 'mood', another influences your character's 'energy', another helps your character learn other skills more easily, another set helps your character move about the world more easily, and so on.
The skills have a kind of deity called a 'giant' associated with them. The favor you gain with these giants influence your ability to learn the higher level forms of the skills you choose to learn. There is a maximum number of skills you may learn, which you can increase with the 'Better Learning' skill to a maximum of 37 skills. You may unlearn skills, though, to pick up other skills if you want.
The crafting skills are kind of integral to the game, unlike some games where it exists, but isn't as important to the game. Almost everything you want in the game can be created by another character or yourself if you improve the associated skill enough to create it.
All combat in the game is co-operative. Although I have the skill to engage in combat against 'rooks', I haven't yet. Just haven't stumbled into a situation where they were attacking an area yet.
The community has a reputation of being very co-operative. To date, I haven't met anyone playing this game who is rude. Most people are very co-operative, and the game encourages this kind of gameplay. If you want PvP, you won't find it in Glitch.
For my own part, I have mostly spent the game exploring the game world. You gain achievements for nearly everything, to include exploration. You can explore people's profile easily enough... here's minee:
(Flaximus is my sister, incidentally... she hasn't played it as much as I h ave, to date).
You can also learn quite a bit about the game through their Encyclopedia:
I have one invite left. Not sure yet to whom I should send it.
I have been the only one in hospital, dothebart. I am a little better now that I sleep at home again. But the doctores didnt diagnoze anything, they seem to be clueless. Calling House, M.D.!!!
Ugh... I hope you get better soon, the_mgt.
