Fed Up With Janky Steam Games, Guy Clones One In 12 Minutes

Fed Up With Janky Steam Games, Guy Clones One In 12 Minutes

In his Steam review of a game called Glitch Simulator 2018, user IAmPattyJack claimed that “anyone can make it in roughly 25 minutes.” But as it turned out, he was wrong. It only took him 12 minutes and 18 seconds.

Glitch Simulator 2018, from the esteemed creators of hits like ISIS Simulator and Suicide Simulator, might just be the snake-eating-its-own-tail moment of slapped-together Steam games: It uses the fact that it’s a bug-infested purgatory as its central selling point, breathlessly proclaiming that you can “walk around aimlessly” and “discover bugs & glitches.”

IAmPattyJack quickly realised that the game was just a bunch of stock assets from a game creation tool called Game Guru given painful, Frankenstein’s-Monster-esque life. So he cracked open a copy of Game Guru and got to work. His version of the game, which you can watch him assemble in the video below, ended up nearly indistinguishable from the original.

Fast forward to 2:50 to see a montage of IAmPattyJack creating his version of the game.

“That’s all Glitch Simulator 2018 is,” he wrote in a corresponding Steam review. “A blank map, some terrain raised to form a box around an area, two types of zombie characters, an assassin model copied a few dozen times, and three buildings of which two are missing textures.”

If that for some reason sounds appealing to you, you can download and play his version, which he named Smorsh Simulator 2018, for free. Meanwhile, Glitch Simulator is currently on sale for $US2.00 ($3).
