Glitched Invites You Through The Fourth Wall

Now is a great time to be an Earthbound fan. The last year or so has seen the first two games finally made available legally again on the Nintendo eShop, the heavily Earthbound-inspired Undertale releasing to borderline obnoxious amounts of praise, and the darkly comedic Lisa closing out 2014 by reminding us that humanity will always be terrible. Continuing to carry the Earthbound torch long left abandoned by its progenitors, is En House Studios’ Glitched, here to demolish the fourth wall and put frogs in suits.
