Glitchnap is a Copenhagen-based band that makes games instead of records.
Glitchnap is Mads Johansen Lassen, Joon Van Hove, Jonas Maaløe and Tommy Rousse. Between them they hold passports from Denmark, Belgium and the US, but managed to connect through the Copenhagen game scene in 2011, where they pooled together their game controller collections and began making experimental local multiplayer games under the name "Team Buttfighters" (which they later changed for obvious reasons).
Their first project LAZA KNITEZ!! — a 4-player twitch arcade jousting/shooting game with a custom cocktail arcade cabinet made from several spare IKEA table parts — won the 2012 Nordic Indie Sensation award, and spurred the team on to develop more games, arcades and exhibit their work to a larger, international audience.
Not satisfied with the existing opportunities in the Danish game industry, they instead decided to expand the industry by formally establishing Glitchnap in 2013.
They have yet to regret that decision.
