Glitch, the eccentric MMO featuring input from Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi, has been "unlaunched" two months after it first went live.

"There are two obvious and huge improvements we need to make: the first is to make the early game reveal itself more easily to new players so they can get into the fun faster," wrote Butterfield.
