Things are going without a ... hitch for Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield's newest project, Glitch, after his company, Tiny Speck, closed its second round of funding with a sweet $10.7 million, Inside Social Games reports. This second round of funding was led by venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz and some help from Accel Partners. With $10 million in hand, Tiny Speck plans for Glitch to enter closed beta next week, which you can sign up for right here. Glitch plans to provide "something you've not seen before" with action-oriented gameplay, detailed artwork and an original story. The game, which has been in development for 18 months, will allow its players to take its weird, unique artwork and use it in other mediums. It's an exciting idea, but we're just waiting for someone to create a competitor with the same artwork--the gall!
