GLITCHED is an upcoming choice-based RPG by En House Studios, planned for release in 2020. Its development was the result of a Website/{{Kickstarter}} [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/enhousestudios/glitched campaign]] that launched on July 22, 2016 and managed to raise $68,646. The demo, which is constantly updating, can be found [[https://enhousestudios.itch.io/glitched here,]] along with more information about the game.

When a glitch appears in the world of Soren, an unexpected hero, Gus, becomes aware of you - the player. Together with Gus, you will make choices that will shape the story and world around you. Discover the world of Soren and solve the mystery of the glitch. As the story unfolds, Gus might start to question what role you have in his world.

* BystanderSyndrome: Just like how you can get involved in conflicts, you can often choose to have Gus ignore them entirely and go on your merry way, focusing on your own objective.
* ChoiceandConsequenceSystem: Your essence can change how a situation plays out, causing a whole new story to take place.
* CloseKnitCommunity: The small town of Betwixit that Gus lives in.
* DecoyProtagonist: Conrad is this, up until he gets corrupted by the glitch.
* InterfaceScrew: The glitch has ''weird'' side effects to the game...
* NoFourthWall: The game. The employees at FROG Inc. are aware of you the second you begin a new game. Due to the glitch screwing things up, Gus becomes aware of you and talks to you frequently.
* PreexistingEncounters: There are no random encounters. Each fight usually happens when a situation goes bad.
* RetGone: After the glitch happens, excluding Gus and the player, none of the townspeople in Betwixit remember Conrad's existence, much to Gus' confusion and frustration. Even the photos and books involving him are corrupted.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential:
** Rather than choosing to save Gus when he gets hit with the glitch, you can opt to leave him to his fate. [[spoiler: Your save file will get corrupted as well if you do this and trying to continue the game from that save will result in a black screen with random sprites floating down the screen.
