Welcome to the Wasteland!
The Wasteland—an unforgiving and desolate place that just so happens to be one of the last bastions of life left on Earth. Ari is a teenage scavenger scraping by until she stumbles across a priceless, malfunctioning AI from the Old World. Now, with every gang from the Cactus Clan to the rogue bandits Jaws the Rock-Eater and Boom, and even the elusive Night Rider hunting her down, Ari has to band together with old allies to unlock the secrets of the past...if she can stay alive long enough.

Bringing Fun to a Desolate Landscape
The vast Wasteland in GLITCH could be considered a character all on its own, with its harsh, desolate landscape littered with Old World technology and its communities running on renewable energy. But it's also bursting with colorful actual characters who breathe new life into the typically bleak post-apocalyptic genre by providing refreshing levity and hope even in the most dire of circumstances.
From lone scavengers delving into Old World ruins to survive, to malicious bandit clans ready to take what they need at any cost, to sprawling pockets of civilization led by powerful and charismatic leaders, there are plenty of characters and factions to fall in love with, hate with a burning passion, and everything in between!
