Global Game Jam 2011 NL (theme: extinction) entry and winner of 1st place & crowd pleaser award.

GLITCHHIKER is a game that can become extinct.

Everytime a player anywhere in the world starts up the game, the game itself loses 1 life. However,
for every 100 coins the player collects while playing the game a life is added. This way players directly influence whether the game lives and prospers or becomes extinct. When the game becomes extinct it can no longer be played.

GLITCHHIKER went extinct on Sunday 6 february 2011 at 21:41

The game has recieved publicity on Control Online.

At the 2011 Dutch Game Awards GLITCHHIKER got nominated for the Control Industry Award. 
At GDC 2012, GLITCHHIKER recieved an honorable mention for the IGF Nuovo Award.
