Someone Save Me from Clicker Hell


This week Clicker Heroes launched on Steam. In case you haven’t heard of it, this started out as an incremental browser RPG. Basically, you click monsters to accumulate gold. You level up the party of heroes with said gold, and can do so infinitely many times. The stronger everyone is, the better your click damage, and the more efficient it becomes to kill larger foes. But at the end of the day you just click, idle, rinse and repeat.

I actually already suffered through a big obsession with the game when it was available in browser but eventually got over it. But now that the darn game has launched on Steam I’m back idling and clicking away. I have already put in 9 hours of heavy idling and slight play in one day. Why?!

Well, Clicker Heroes has Steam Achievements now. It’s hard to say if that’s the entire reason why, but there’s just something satisfying about seeing numbers go up and up. And yes, before you ask, I am still playing AdVenture Capitalist as well. That one seems to have grown less glitchy with time. At the moment Clicker Heroes faces saving issues (apparently) which makes me afraid to close the game.

Perhaps a really horrible loss of data will cause me to reevaluate my current revitalized excitement over Clicker Heroes? We shall see!
