I think the weird turn where people are once again bullying NEG rather than just debate the subject to be a pretty sad state of affairs.  

 

 

I’d argue against the “again” but but that’s beside the point. If it isn’t bullying it is pretty poor form to use Negs Steam history to discredit him. Play the issue not the man.

 

Rob is fortunate (although we aren’t ) in getting a 101 on exploitative clickers rather than a report for being a bit creepy.

 

Oh and @NEG Universal Paperclips is the best clicker ever made. You need to add that to your playlist.

Just tried a clicker for the first time. Bitcoin Billionaire.  I don’t get the draw.  Clicked lots. Opened up more missions. Then it offered more rewards if I enabled push notifications.   That’s when I uninstalled it.   Perhaps not for me. :)

Going off topic I’d still recommend Universal Paperclips because

 

-it has a great narrative told by its gameplay

-it’s free

-it has an end point

Probably should move it to a new thread but speaking of Crush Crush it seems a new feature has been added today, a phone...thing!

No idea what it leads to yet.

Oh dear

 

Perfect time to give it a go! :)

 

Edit: One more

I got to the end, and saw Bennett Foddy credited... Makes perfect sense.

 

I'm still playing on and off, letting it run in the background at times. Much better than the bitcoin billionaire one I tried.

Thank you for this suggestion; I wouldn’t have been aware of it otherwise, and I really enjoyed it. I’ve always dismissed clicker games as completely pointless wastes of time, but that one sets itself apart from the crowd and keeps things interesting to the end.

 

Spoiler

I like the way you have to dismantle everything at the end, and are left with 100 inches of wire in order to click the last 100 paperclips yourself.

 

Are there any others that are as good?

In my opinion no. Other clickers are highly exploitative Skinner boxes.

 

Also you might have noticed the designers of Universal Paperclips avoid getting their players addicted post game.

You won't be able to play again, at least not in the same browser

Posting again:

It does have a progression curve and, although endless, has a satisfying and somewhat scary conclusion.

 

Edit: Adventure Capitalist, Crush Crush and Idling To Rule The Gods are fine for what they are on the Steam end of things, though!

I hadn't heard of Crush Crush so I watched part of the video below. Is this what all Crush Crush players are like? Pretending to play it ironically but not really ** crying emoji **

 

 

The 500 people on the Crush Crush discord are probably not playing it ironically, no.

Interestingly, the Android app has a "Play Again" button:

Commodore Clicker doesn't have a story like Universal Paperclips, but it has a good concept: it's a JavaScript C64 emulator, and your clicks increase the clock speed of the emulation:

The aim is to get it up to the full rate of a Commdore 64, so you can move a sprite around with your arrow keys! :omg:

 

According to this recent post the developer says he might start working on it again!

Psst, do they know you can just change your machine time to skip the grind and get to the sweet* porns?

 

*20 minutes of my life wasted.

Apparently my browser lost the progress I originally had on this (basically all of the upgrades and trying to boost the clock speed bit by bit) ...so of course I should probably start clicking again. :P
