Discovering the World of Idle Games: From Progress Quest to Cookie Clicker
Idle Games, Clicker Games, or Incremental Games: Where did this reasonably new genre come from, what are the biggest names in the industry, and why are they so popular?
Every few years a new genre of game appears, usually a refinement of some indie game. There’s a natural curve to these things, as the popular game becomes more popular and competitors begin to produce products that iterate and improve on the original.
One of the most popular genres in recent history is also one that tends to be controversial. Idle Games, Incremental Games, ‘Clickers.’ These titles are often dismissed immediately because they are too casual, too automated, not game-enough, and yet statistically speaking you’ve not only played one of these games, but you’ve actually got one installed on your phone or PC right now.
