  1. Kittens Game is a text based idle game and it’s addictive like crack. It’s more complex than a lot of ‘visual’ games. You got the nail on the head about liking watching numbers go up

    1. This and universal paperclips! I like to let players discover them themselves so I don’t feel like them loosing productivity is due to my recommendation.

      When I was contracting for a adult game’s publisher, I showed universal paperclip to one of their employees and I watched the guy loose hours at the office just staring and playing that game. It got so bad HR had a meeting with us and banned the game in the entire office.
