Cookie Clicker 2.0 has arrived to end productivity
Published 09/02/2016 | 11:58
Cookie Clicker, a free-to-play browser-based game in which you harvest cookies, has been updated to suck people back into its world.
Were you having a productive day? Well, that's all about to change as the surprisingly addictive Cookie Clicker has been updated for the first time in three years.
The update, according to developer Orteil, adds new buildings, upgrades, sounds, "angels and switches and a dragon or two, a whole bunch of other stuff".
If you (somehow) missed out on Cookie Clicker since its release three years ago, the browser-based game tasks you with clicking on a giant cookie to mine smaller cookies, which can then be used to make the task easier. You can get automated clickers, a legion of grandmothers who bake cookies, mines, and more.
It's one of those games that people invested a great deal of time into, but they've no idea why they did. You can try Cookie Clicker 2.0 for yourself online; be prepared to wear out your left mouse button for a little while until your automated cursors start paying dividends.
