    Anyone play these?

    Eggs Inc is fun just to watch the chickens fucking run.

    Melvor Idle is Runescape without the work

    You don't "play" idle games actually since to play a game you need to actually interact with it. What's the appeal of a so called game with minimal user input?

    In the last month or so I have developed a crippling addiction to Cookie Clicker. This game is horrible. Horrible.

    No such thing. They're called idle games. Deal with it.

    They're all fucking horrible and pointless but I'm level 30 in Melvor Idle now and I just got my firemaking skill high enough to burn willow logs.

    I'm making so much progress

    So much

    They're "wrinklers". They eat cookies and reduce your overall cookie income, but you can pop them like wrinkly balloons they give you back slightly more cookies than they ate.

    Lore-wise I'm pretty sure they're my cookie baking grandmas (pics related) but twisted and warped by colors from beyond time and space. The final, ascended, eldritch elders.

    Used to play some idle style muds. Melvor is that hollow kind of rewarding I love and hate myself for loving.

    Oh God. Not sure if it counts as an idle game per se, but I also started playing Fallen London. Apparently it ties into Sunless Sea, which is the main reason I checked it out. So now I constantly have two idle-y browser games open at all times. I'm losing control of my life.

    Someone play Fallen London with me so I can have some in-game acquaintances and the like. Fuckers. I want to host dinner parties or whatever and get confident smiles. I think you need... *barf* friends for that, though.

    I'm not touching either game 90% of the time, but I gotta have 'em open. For reasons. If I close Cookie Clicker I lose 19% of my cookies per second - a complete waste. It must remain open on my second monitor for MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY. Fallen London I could quit and come back to, I guess, but keeping the tab open so I can keep track of how many actions I have available gives me comfort and warmth.
