I love idle games / clicker games. These are games where very little input is ever required, they run in the background and you can be as active or inactive as you want and still make ‘progress’ I’ve played a lot of them over the years, and my favourites are always a mixture of actions depending on the day and my moods. I saw a few friends playing Idle Champions in my steam list, and I decided to check it out because I had never played it before.
I’ve kept the game running for days now, and it shows. With over 90 hours invested I am truly smitten by this idle game. There are a few reasons for this, but one is it’s free – and you can find codes all over the place to earn items / chests that help progress without feeling the pressure to invest any cash. That being said, after a week of game play I decided to spend the $15 CAD for the season pass so I could unlock even more goodies. Much like I’d buy a season pass for BDO, it gives me rewards for the season with a little extra.
I can’t even begin to explain why games like this appeal to me, but they’re just light little fun things when I don’t have the focus or dedication for a ‘proper’ game.
Last night I took a small break from Baldur’s Gate 3 to get some actual sleep (who knew, I can’t just run on coffee) but I’m sure I’ll be back at my duo campaign tonight, and tomorrow (Tuesday) is the group campaign again. As always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!
