That's not all as Tiny Speck has also given away its animations and source code for anyone to do with as they please. They couldn't bear for it to be "shuttered away forever."
Founder Stewart Butterfield of Tiny Speck confirm there were millions of animation frames in the free giveaway, and so much more to hopefully see Glitch live again.
"The team at Tiny Speck put years of work into the art for Glitch: many thousands of hours by a hugely talented team on illustration, animation, character designs, effects, avatar systems and environmental," said Butterfield.
"The game didn't make it, but couldn't stand the thought of all of that creative work shuttered away forever. Making it freely available to all as a public good is a worthy legacy for the project. We hope it will be useful for other creative projects, from student and artistic work to unfettered commercial use." It's a noble gesture and will hopefully inspire others. The entire game is available to pick apart on the .
"Tiny Speck, Inc., the game’s developer, has relinquished its ownership of copyright over these 10,000+ assets in the hopes that they help others in their creative endeavours and build on Glitch’s legacy of simple fun, creativity and an appreciation for the preposterous. Go and make beautiful things," reads the website.
