A new video game called Clicker Heroes is now available to download and play on the Xbox One in most regions but it has a little quirk, the game developers don’t want users to play it. Kind of. Clicker Heroes is selling itself as an “Idle RPG” and it works in inverse to how most games are expected to function. While the average RPG (roleplaying game) tasks the gamer with playing all of the story and action content, Clicker Heroes has all of that happen when the game is idle or turned off (hence the title). The actual playable part of the title happens after the fact and allows the player to enjoy the rewards of the game that has happened while they were away. Here’s the official game description:
Clicker Heroes – the Idle RPG! Ever wondered what one quadrillion damage per second feels like? Wonder no more! Embark on your quest to attain it today! Start out by clicking on the monster to kill them, and get their gold. Spend that gold on hiring new heroes and get more damage. The more damage you deal, the more gold you will get. Feel your power grow exponentially! Need to do the laundry? Give the puppy a shower? No worries! Your heroes will farm monsters and automatically collect the gold while you’re gone, even when the game is closed. But don’t forget to come back and spend all that sweet gold on new heroes and upgrades!
Clicker Heroes is free to download but it does have some in-game purchases. Have you played it yet? Do you like the idle aspect of it? Let us know in the comments below.Further reading: Microsoft, Video Games, Xbox, Xbox One
