Y'all have to forgive me as I'm linking direct to an Ars Technica piece for Loop Hero (well, you don't pay me enough for original content) - an autoplayer/clicker/idler RPG with an 80's aesthetic.

Being old and generally out of it I've never heard of the idler/clicker genre, but being old and (frequently) idle it appeals to me. It's out for our favourite platform & runs on a potato, what's not to like?

I've been playing idle games since Cookie Clicker. It is rare to find one that is NOT available on mobile. Even rarer to find an advertising free paid one. I had not seen this one so thanks for posting it. I hadn't really thought about it until this article but I wouldn't mind some idle games on switch. Its really my go to pick up a few minutes here and there device.

Try as I might I just cannot play most games on mobile (idle games being the exception, they are made for tapping waiting for the microwave)

There's some real fun ones.

Idle Champeons is great, http://www.idlechampions.com/

East Side makes a lot of thematic ones, I tend to tap the TPB one a lot. https://www.eastsidegames.com/games/. Bloody hell the ads in most of them though.

That looks pretty neat. I'm a big fan of Forgotten Realms stuff.

There's nothing serious but I've chuckled a few times at the cheesy stories.

Get behind me macdude, you shall not tempt me to spend the rest of my meager days addicted to an endless RPG game.  Your mind is an open book to me, mahaps I'll tear out a page, then save my place with a jelly bookmark.
