The End of the Line
When we first announced Glitch's closure, we said that the website and forums would remain available for a while and that we'd notify everyone of the site's closure ahead of time. This, unfortunately, is that notification. We will be taking significant portions of the Glitch website offline on March 25th.
The silver lining of this particular cloud is that we will be able to keep far more of the Glitch website alive than we'd initially anticipated. Rather than going offline completely, we'll be switching the site into an archival mode — nearly all of its existing content will remain online. You will no longer be able to log in to comment, edit, or like things, but your profile and snaps will remain available for viewing.
The portions of the website that will remain online are:
- The Encyclopedia, including all of the CC-licensed assets
- Published snaps, including comments and likes
- Profiles, including status updates and comments, avatar images, achievements, skills, friends lists, and player biographies.
The portions of the website that will go offline on March 25th are:
- Groups and group discussions
- Wardrobe and Vanity
Thank you all for being part of Glitch. We had the best community a game could hope for and we can't imagine having an online archive of the game without all of you in it. If you don't want your profile or snaps to remain online, you may go to your account page
to delete your account. If you're going to stick around for the long haul, be sure to put on some snazzy threads
, pick your best nose
, and update your bio
while you still can! March 25th will be the last day to delete or change your profile.
On behalf of the crew at Tiny Speck, both past and present: we love you. Thanks :)
