fight for your memories
1618 years ago, in the year 2134, a virus brought back to Earth from the first human expedition to Mars wiped out 40% of the planet’s population and plunged the world into chaos and disarray. Humanity, ever resilient and capable of adapting to new situations and environments, banded together to salvage, repair and improve upon that which had been lost. The era became known as the “RE:initialization”. One day, researchers found out that the survivors of the pandemic had developed an immune response that due to its fundamental structure was called the “pi cells”. Upon further study, an exceptional characteristic of these cells was uncovered: They were in constant communication with each other, exchanging information across bodies on a global scale.
The pi cell mystery captured the imagination of the brightest minds of the planet and lead to the creation of a new technology that harnessed their communication mechanism. In the year 1618 after the “Re:initialization”, a breakthrough experiment was conducted to further study and test the new technology. It was called The Deep Sky Network, a metaverse that people could connect to and it was hailed as the next big step forward in mankind’s evolution.
Unfortunately, something went horribly wrong: One day a glitch caused a very large number of people to die in the real world, but they were not fully gone! Their minds somehow survived their bodies’ deaths and were permanently transferred into the Deep Sky Network. It affected anyone who connected to the network for longer than 3 days, 1 hour, 41 minutes and 59 seconds without breaking the connection, giving the mysterious but deadly glitch the name the “pi effect”. Safeguards that prevented more people from dying were quickly introduced but the ones who were already affected were lost in the depths of virtual reality, never to return to the real world again.
They died in the real world but still live on in the virtual reality as mental ghosts, binary shadows of what they used to be. They are called The Lost Glitches!

RPG meets deck building
An experiment gone wrong, a mistake that leads to a virtual world made up of collective memories that merge into one.
Memory, a limited resource, is often insufficient to allow those lost in Deep Sky to reconstruct their individual memories. Glitches form connections, syndicates and divide Deep Sky into territories. These territories reflect the limited memories of the Glitches as they remember their world, but fragmented and stitched together. The larger the territory, the more memory a syndicate has available to remember and reconstruct.
The inhabitants of Deep Sky meet at the borders of these territories to fight. Every victory adds to the territory of the syndicate. Even if it is only a pixel on the grid, it is a priceless memory for a Glitch.
The game consists of five syndicates, each syndicate being fundamentally different from the others. Select your character and syndicate wisely, as this will define the direction of your play style. In The Lost Glitches you’re building your deck with an army of Glitches and spells around your character and fighting to expand your syndicate’s territory in turn based combat.
The more you play, the stronger your character becomes, whom you can equip and upgrade with remnants.
These are cultural artefacts from before Deep Sky, objects that contain particularly powerful memories. Remnants serve as special abilities that can be used during normal play. Although remnants are always available, they can only be played only if their conditions are met. Remnants have multiple levels that are unlocked throughout the game. There are several ways to upgrade your remnants and your choice will fundamentally change its effect.
