Alex's MacBook is a titanium one, with a black protective cover. That's the logo light shining through it.

We were expecting that.
Even took a still for the express purpose.

But you still beat us to it.

I am IN NO WAY surprised.

I actually forgot about that meme. I guess I also wasn't paying attention to the video well enough.

Also, for the actual game, even if level 1 were just 1 click, level 100 would be would be 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 clicks alone, not counting each previous levels.

I know people like grinding but that would take like lifetimes. If someone is actually interested in making clickquest a real game it would need a different level algorithm, maybe something similar to desert bus - prev level + 7%?

I just made up the numbers on screen for show, they don't really mean anything. In fact, here's the screen as a clickquest desktop theme!

Its not that hard to calculate the total clicks since you have it increasing by 10 each time.
So
lvl 1 has 1 Click
Lvl 2 has 10 Clicks
Lvl 3 has 100 Clicks
==================== Total clicks to get to lvl 3 is 111

So lvl 100 will have 1 followed by 99 0's as the level goal, with a total 1 followed by 99 1's.
Completely doable game (if you get creative about how to code it)

1,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111,111 clicks.

Funnily enough, this is EXACTLY 1/9th of a googol (1x10^100) minus 1/9th of one click.

See, I'd originally interpreted what Alex said as "ten times more, than you clicked last time"

So, LVL 1: 1
LVL 2: 11
LVL 3: 21
etc

But that's lame in the other way.


I think it needs a percentage increase instead.
