The Next Gen of  Gaming Using AI

Glade is pioneering a new frontier in games and redefining gaming innovation using AI. Our founding team consists of passionate gamers and industry veterans, including former software engineers and professionals from Meta, Square, and Navan.

In Glade's first release, Cursed Crown, players will experience a multiplayer, rogue-lite game with AI-generated content and story progression. Waking up in a forsaken prison, the players find themselves trapped with no memories of the past. To escape, they must embark on a journey with their party, uncovering secrets about their past and the details of their capture with each new floor unlocked.

With the power of generative AI, every choice makes ripples through the game, shaping the players' destiny and crafting a saga uniquely theirs.
