Howard Glitch is a Point ‘N Click ‘N Escape Reality game….
Imagine Monkey Island and the movie Inception had a lovechild, and you’re halfway there!
It actually uses Youtube as the main game interface, featuring multiple endings and a chiptune soundtrack..
The story is about a space shuttle hurtling into the maw of a monster. You’re aboard the shuttle, along with several other passengers, but there’s no driver or controls. The shuttle is being controlled far away by someone who isn’t paying attention. While you’re rushing toward your doom, you have some choices to make. The first: should you sit by and await death, or delve deep into your mind to escape reality?
PLAY THE GAME ONLINE:
It is also worth mentioning that Howard Glitch: [the game] is a small piece of a large multimedia jigsaw puzzle… So if something doesn’t make sense yet with the game, don’t be alarmed!
What will accompany the game will be a music soundtrack, a book, and visual artwork.. Each different piece of media tells the story from a different perception, leaving the whole story in your hands to decide what is really going on!
Here is an extended trailer, giving a preview for the rest of the jigsaw that is to come….
Howard Glitch: [the sequel game] is also on the way, with hopefully a xmas release!
