How can I use GlitchDB?

Finding Glitches

You can easily discover glitches on GlitchDB by checking the homepage, from there you can see the latest glitches that have been submitted.

If you want to see glitches for a specific game then check out the Games page, there you will find a list of games that you can find glitches for, clicking a game will take you to that games page where you can find glitches for that game.

If you can't find the game you are looking for on the games page then try typing it's name into the filter box, if the game doesn't show up then it probably hasn't been added to GlitchDB yet. See Submitting Glitches to find out how to add games and glitches to the GlitchDB.

You can also use the advanced games filter to find games for specific platforms or developers.

On an individual game page you can also use the advanced glitches filter to find glitches for that game belonging to a specific category or platform.
