You can’t imagine how excited I was when I finally got an invitation to join Glitch. I sent my email address and waited and waited for their open invite to start. While following tweets and updates on the Facebook Group, I notice one of their admin offering to extend an invite. Did I jump on it! 10 minutes later, I found my invite waiting for me in my email box. Sweet!
This screenshot is my avatar Willow Shenlin (hey, she’s a virtual world traveler!) in her first 10 minutes of play…which involved a hands on training during which I not only learned the functions, but collected some food, fruits and a watering can. 5 minutes later, I met my first friend; 5 minutes after that, I reached level 3. Upon clamoring it in Global chat, I got mobbed by an overly friendly group who maxed out my 12-space bag (inventory), was given 2 more bags, and by default learned how to organize my newfound wealth among those bags. Someone had 15 bags! Needless to say, I did not have to worry about food to boost my energy level in future quests. A Level 53 friend even asked if I needed anything…a hatchet maybe so that i can go back and get that wood I missed earlier. no problem. Just dropped it on my avatar. wow. just like that. A very friendly and fun community.
After a half hour play, I am now a level 4 with a few badges and skills under my belt and 10 friends. oh, and 3 Giltch invites. So if you want in, let me know 😀
I have yet to find any educational use to this world. But I had fun and the community has been overwhelmingly gracious and generous. I am certainly on to reach that two digit level in no time. Games on!
