Gamasutra – News – The story of Glitch: Why this odd MMO is shutting down

By and large, people who tried the game often complained it wasn't fun, and trying to pin down the fun was a challenge for the team.

Really interesting post-mortem on a project that didn't quite work out well enough. I wish more sites did this kind of article, since there are lots of lessons here. I've kind of followed Butterfield since the Game Never Ending days, so i'll look forward to what comes next w/Tiny Speck.
