Universal Paperclips is a clicker game that I found through this RPS piece and it has had a firm grip on mind for 2 days straight. As the piece mentions, it’s designed by Frank Lantz of the NYU Game Center. Compared to other clickers, it’s probably closest to Spaceplan - not quite as mindless as Cookie Clicker, not quite as narrative-driven as Candy Box or A Dark Room.
It has a… significantly longer tail than any of those, though. Like I said, I’m 2 days in, and one particular progress bar still sits at “0.000000000000%” complete.
I’m not here to infect other people with this brain virus, nor to cure myself of it. I just need to know:
Once my space probes reach 20 trust and I’m out of new upgrades to buy, what should I work on and how long does it take?
Thank you and I’m sorry.
