A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Are you ready to RAGE QUIT?


This is a game made for  #flappyjam & (but was too late) for #candyjam. Inspired by the contraints of the #flappyjam theme & gameplay 

#flappyjam: "make a hard, almost unplayable game"

and the love for games that you can actually fail & master (that's where the #candyjam f2p thing comes in)

Wanna see a gameplay video?

important people ranting bout the game:

Video review by Nick from Indie-impressions.com (love the show!)

"...as long as you don't have issues with flashing lights, it's very entertaining and addictive. Have fun going for a high score!"

User comment: "This game just... Feels, really good."

Tim from indiegames.com
"One of the best takes yet on the Flappy Bird mechanic, Ridiculous Glitching is a competitive multiplayer arcade game for up to four players on the same keyboard...A single-player option is included for practice runs, but the game only starts to shine when you can round up a few friends to play together with."
Chris from Kotaku
"What lies beyond in the infinite void of data? One hard-ass game, that's what."
Brian from N3rdabl3
"Ridiculous Glitching is a hell-spawn derived from the Flappy Jam challenge to “make a hard, almost unplayable game,” and damn if it doesn’t live up to the challenge...[it has] super awesome features like ‘ever increasing, increasing difficulty’ and ‘lots of game over screens’ this game is sure to satisfy your weekly quota of “F*** THIS GAME” screams."
Awesome video of a 4 player battle from the yogscast guys
Youtube user comment: "Ridiculous Glitching...ending friendships one glitch at a time."
Patrick from Giantbomb playing for the first time
"Hey, You Should Play This"
PC Gamer Best free games of the week:
"A singularity of Flappyness, cloning, glitch affectation, pretend arcade presentation and fist-pumping chiptunes, Ridiculous Glitching should win some sort of award for being the most on-trend indie game around. Thankfully these elements merge to form one cheeky, unpredictable and bastard-hard game you'll want to replay, and replay, and replay and replay to see what other visual and aural tricks it has up its sleeve."
Rock,Paper, Shotgun:
Flappy Bird + multiplayer + retro glitch hell, or, in the words of the jam it came from, “a hard, almost unplayable game”. As the level progresses (aka you survive more than a few seconds) the game distorts, colors warping and dimensions shifting. The challenge is even knowing what you’re looking at.
If this is too completely sadistically fucked for you, there’s...other games[edited].

What happens when you combine a classic arcade game like Pac-Man with a modern smash hit like Flappy Bird? You get fatal errors out the wazoo, that's what.

Game bla bla (aka story):

what happens if a rogue electron leading to a rom error gives a once 'free to play' video game a once in a lifecycle chance to follow its heart.

What will it do?.

In Ridiculous Glitching, you the player will play against this game gone rogue. Instead of guiding, helping and pampering you - instead of milking millions of meaningless clicks and premium currency from you (for you to stay in the flow & addicted) it will follow its most inner wish:

It will crush you.

it will use collective video game memory to conjure up a zerrbild of videogames not to give a challenge but to beat you.

Would the game be a human being - it would be considered a psychopath.

Can you survive the real paywall?

Word of advice: stay clear of the glitch!
