Glitch, a game of giant imagination, is the new slogan crafted by a group of former Flickr employees, including Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield, to describe their new socially based massively-multiplayer game. CNET has a meaty indepth behind the scenes article out on the new game which will be free to play, is browser based and is currently in private alpha testing to be released publicly in the second half of the year.
In addition to Butterfield, former Flickr employees Cal Henderson, Eric Costello and Serguei Mourachov are also co-founders of a new company called Tiny Speck that is releasing the game. Daniel Burka, former creative director at Digg, is also part of the new team.
For those of you who are familiar with the history of Flickr, you’ll be aware that prior to becoming a photo sharing site, Flickr was originally released as a socially based game called Game Neverending.
