Glitchspace might look like the Mirror’s Edge expansion and appear to show you running around holding a gun, but this is a game about puzzles. And programming.

You spend the game running around a cyberspace environment, looking for glitches. When you find a puzzle, you don’t just slide a block; the game’s developers have built a “node-based programming system”, which “allows for chunks of functionality to be applied to objects with ease, and makes the programming a visual, dynamic and instantaneous feature”.

In other words, you can manipulate the environment and the objects around you. Like force powers-meets-Portal, then, only with programming.

The final thing is due out soon, but you can buy it now (for just $US6) and try out the alpha while you wait.
