Seminal idle game Cookie Clicker is coming to Steam after years of updates and enhancements.
Cookie Clicker was released in 2013 as a simplistic idle browser game and has received multiple updates over the years to flesh out the gameplay and add replay value.
The official Steam description reads “Cookie Clicker is a game about making an absurd amount of cookies. To help you in this endeavor, you will recruit a wide variety of helpful cookie makers, like friendly Grandmas, Farms, Factories, and otherworldly Portals”.
The Steam page encourages those who played Cookie Clicker several years ago to “try it again to see all the new features”. These include the ability to upgrade over 600 times, multiple mini-games, cloud saving, pets, and over 500 achievements.
Cookie Clicker’s soundtrack has been written by C418, who also created the iconic Minecraft music.
Cookie Clicker releases on Steam on September 1, and is listed at $4.99 (around £3.60). It is now available to wishlist.
In other gaming news, the next free game on the Epic Games Store will be Rebel Galaxy, a space western trading and combat sim. Usually two games are made available, but this week focuses on a single game. Until August 12, Minit and A Plague Tale: Innocence are free to download.
New documents have also been shared pertaining to an alleged intended purchase of Epic Games by Google, one which Epic appears to have been unaware of. Although the sale never materialised, the documents add depth to the antitrust case between Google and Epic.
