I Clicked a Cookie

...instead of, you know, eating it.

It was a rather sunny day in Bekasi. A really nice time to do something productive. I could have done a chore, went for a light jogging, helped my brother download that anime about naked giants attacking people's shit (man, is that anime so popular as ever), or baked a cookie.

But instead, I sat my lazy ass down at my computer (like always) and clicked a cookie. While being helped by nice grandmas to bake more cookies.

What? Of course I'm talking about that game - Cookie Clicker. Duh.

As a wise man once said, "The journey of a thousand cookies begins with a single click."

First of all, Cookie Clicker is what you call an idle game; the kind of game where you just leave your game running by itself for long periods of time.

Now, you probably will ask, "What's the fun of it when I'm doing nothing but waiting?"

Well, well. Fun fact about this kind of game; the majority of them are actually so addictive in their own way. Don't believe me? Well then, you can try it for yourself here - or here for the old version. I say play the old version instead if your computer is shitty (like mine, for example).

So anyway, back to the game itself. The objective is quite simple; you start out with a single large, clickable cookie (as seen on the pictures above). One click from it produces one cookie. Once you've produced enough cookies, you can buy upgrades to help you with your cookies clicking. Soon enough, you will find yourself no longer have to click anything as your upgrades will be doing the job for you.

Of course there are more things to expect, and these things involve eldritch abominations, aka. Things Man Was Not Meant To Meet. But hey, this is for you to find out, and not for me to spoil it any further.

So far, I've played three idle games (including this). The others are Coinbox Hero (made by jmtb02, of Elephant Quest fame), and Kaguya Table (for Touhou fans out there). Try them out too if you have time to waste!
