When we see cookies and obsession in the same sentence, we think the writer is talking about our cookie baskets. In one recent article, however, the author wasn’t even talking about real cookies.
Brian Crecente recently wrote about the “obsessive, increasingly large fan following” for the game Cookie Clicker on the gaming website Polygon. Here’s his brief overview of Cookie Clicker.
“Players have to click on a cookie to produce a cookie. Those cookies can, in turn, be used to increase cookie production through the purchase of virtual grandmas, farms, time machines and the like. There is no goal in the game beyond producing cookies at an ever increasing rate. My game, for instance, currently produces a smidge more than 28 billion cookies a second.” (You can read his full story here.)
Now, we understand a cookie obsession. But 28 billion cookies per second? Yikes!
Besides, those cookies aren’t even real! You may be better off with our Cookie Extravaganza which includes 72 cookies in your choice of flavors. If you prefer brownie gifts, check out our Brownie Extravaganza which includes 48 delicious gourmet brownies.
No matter the choice, you’ll have plenty of sweets to keep you going as you click, and click, and click some more on Cookie Clicker.
