Description

Cityglitch is a turn-based puzzle game for PC and mobile. Fly through haunted cities and solve rooftop puzzles by lighting runes. Each puzzle is a 5x5 grid with a tricky arrangement of sprites designed to tease and torment. Light the runes to complete the ritual and release the cities from their glitches. The game was made with LÖVE (2d game framework).

History

Cityglitch began as a jam game for Ludum Dare 36. We designed the first puzzles on cue-cards and used a chess board to test them. The jam version was completed in 72 hours and featured 19 puzzles in one city. We continued adding puzzles, creatures and dangers to the game eventually ending up with 95 levels that we split across 7 cities. The visuals were revamped to create a world of vibrant pixels and shimmering, glitchy shaders. Cityglitch now supports iOS and Android, fitting both landscape and portrait dimensions.

  • "Cityglitch does really neat stuff in a very small design space (5x5 puzzles, a handful of elements)... the tiny levels mean that puzzles that would normally feel overwhelming for me are usually solvable with enough persistence..."
