Bit by bit

My latest obsession is incremental games, a type of idle game where simple actions are performed to earn rewards, which can then be invested to earn rewards faster. The goal is to incrementally increase income or an asset (money, computing power, paperclips, potatoes) to progress and the gameplay includes upgrades and power-ups. I especially enjoy story-driven games, games that simulate computer work, and games that have a simple GUI.

My favorites, so far, are Skynet Simulator, Universal Paperclips, and SPACEPLAN. Games I’m trying to get in to include A Dark Room, Candy Box, Crank, Bitburner, Idle Loops, The Barnacle Goose Experiment, and Increlution.

There’s a gallery for incremental games, an ultimate list, and a guide on how to build an incremental game.
