Kotaku: It’s Not A Glitch. It’s A Feature. It’s Art. It’s Beautiful.

I love game glitches. I’m currently making a game centered around glitches. This post on Kotaku by Patricia Hernandez really captures the wonder and excitement behind finding these priceless flaws in human error.

Finding a glitch is like finding gold. Finding MISSINGNO., going to World -1, or even tilting a cartridge – it makes you feel like an adventurer that has traveled beyond the game. If you love glitches, you’ll want to read this, and sink deep into nostalgia.

    I agree with you that glitches are fun to find, but exploiting them gets old fast. Nice post, though!

      True, but some people get really creative with them. Like the BEN (Majora’s Mask) creepypasta was made with little video editing and exploiting glitches and cheats.
