Let’s Get Creative

Glitch art can be seen in many different forms, from buildings to photos to actual art.

And if you’re one of those people that think game glitches are always annoying, think again. Sometimes great things can come out of these glitches:

One glitch in particular is from the original Grand Theft Auto (GTA) game, “Race ‘n’ Chase”. The game was originally meant to be a racing game, a bit similar to Mario Kart, except for a glitch in the programming of the police that made them go bat-shit crazy for no apparent reason.

Test players thought this was hilarious and instead of doing the missions they just dicked around trying to cause as much damage as possible. In the end the designers remodelled the game around the crazy cop glitch and made the game all about violence, car chases and general mayhem, incidentally creating one of the most influential game series of all time.

  1. The art of glitches, they are amazing. I like how you based this post around glitches and how as a society we can get easy entertainment out of it. I really liked how you gave example of different captured glitches and how they all shared the common theme of glitches occurring in human figures. Deformed glitches to the way people are moving in game are always the things that make me laugh the most. I still remember the old Rugby League game where one of my players ran around the field hurdled over like he was about the vomit. Thank you for bring back some great memories.
