Helps good people make great games.

Universal Paperclips is an incremental 'clicker' game where you play an AI who makes paperclips.

It's made by Frank Lantz - Designer of the awesome Drop 7 and Director of the New York University Game Center.

Warning: you will see paperclips in your sleep.

Pros:

Wonderfully minimalist. Strangely compelling. Completely addictive.

Cons:

Before you know it, you've spent hours making paperclips.

First thought.. this looks pretty benign. Aaannnd now it's 90min later and I REALLY need to get to sleep. This is so addictive. I'm actually terrified to make suggestions that would make this better and more addictive than it already is 😜

This was pretty fun to play. I hit approximately 4.2 octillion paperclips made before I got tired of watching this game autoplay.

I lost an entire day to this game and couldn't have loved it more. Thanks for the fun.
