'Glitch' to close down at the end of the year

Tiny Speck have announced that their running co-operative MMO Glitch will be closing down next month.

The developer announced in a blog post;
“This is a horrible day. This is a horrible thing to have to say: Glitch is closing."

“Unfortunately, Glitch has not attracted an audience large enough to sustain itself and based on a long period of experimentation and our best estimates, it seems unlikely that it ever would. And, given the prevailing technological trends — the movement towards mobile and especially the continued decline of the Flash platform on which Glitch was built — it was unlikely to do so before its time was up.”
Tiny Speck acknowledged that Glitch wasn't for everyone and that it pushed the boundaries of what ambition could be.
“And then those limits pushed back,” the developer concluded.

“If there was a way to make it work, we would make it work. But there is not. We’ve been through this from all angles, over and over and over. We’ve shed tears, and we will probably shed some more, but Glitch is over.”
The game will officially close down at 8:00pm PST on December 9 while the game's forums and site will remain open until the end of the year. The developer will begin refunding recent online purchases and will begin rapidly processing older purchases as well.

Tis a sad day for all.
