To be honest I'm not normally into puzzle playformers...oddworld is the exception because I don't play just for the gameplay.

You know, I might as well point out the game I've had going in the background near-constantly for… a while now:
Lazy Kings. The graphics are MS-paint-y. The interface is primitive. But there are a bunch of interesting interactions going on in this little idle/unfolding game (not clicker, thankfully). I recommend it.

On the topic of clicker games, this is a clicker game with a nice twist to it. In this game you are an AI tasked with producing and selling paperclips, making as much paperclips for profit as possible :).

I really liked it and it gives a nice overview of a common problem in AI designing, which you will experience when you solve the game :)

There are a few things I didn't like about it. First off, it doesn't show the payoff for the AI for the last move. What does it get out of that? I know, but the game doesn't show it. Second, how doing the last move required more trust. Like, I can't imagine enough trust for that move.

I totally expected you to go making a vertical supply chain so you could stop buying wire, and then using that to bypass trust altogether.

I got 2 ending options, of which the one I chose didn't require trust. It just left me with 30 desextillion paperclips :)

Looks like it's the same version, but I don't know what else I could have done in the end. Maybe because I skipped maxing out yomi I didn't unlock something suitably final?

there are 3 stages to the game in which you get different options in the left screen. did you get operations to 70000 or a bit less with quantum computing powah?

I noticed that the wire buyer buys too late, reducing your production.... :(
Not even smart enough for just-in-time...

And I usually sell more paper clips than the "average sold" indicates....

I got my memory alone up above 80000.

Then you should be able to get some sort of evil marketing trick that takes you to the next level :)
