New social game from Stewart Butterfield due for release in spring 2011

Stewart Butterfield, co-founder of image-driven social network Flickr, has announced Glitch – a new social game.

The title is a project the developer has been working on since before the creation of Flickr. It is combines elements of platforming and RPGs with social networking, allowing users to interact and trade with other players.

Butterfield said: “The initial experience is a side-scrolling platform game, harkening back to Mario games. Stylistically, it’s a mix of all different kinds of things with contemporary illustration. It’s different from traditional console games or social games.
