Welcome to the 9 Day Idle/Clicker Jam

As a newer genres of games, they have risen in popularity in recent years due to the growing mobile market. The Idle genre encompass' games where you spend time both playing and not playing the game in order to make progress, and the Clicker genre are games you Click or tap on something to progress. Often these genre's are combined, for example having auto clickers as a purchasable upgrade turns a raw clicker game into an Idle game! Some good examples are Neko Atsume, Cookie Clicker, Green the Planet, and Plantera. With more unique takes on the formula like Super Crash Planet!

What are Idle and Clicker Games?

For this jam we define an idle game as:

  • Games where progression can be obtained between play sessions.
  • Interaction with the game is used to change the way the non-play progression works.

And for a clicker it is: 

  • A game in which the player progresses by clicking or tapping on something.

That's It! Go wild with all the other details!
