Work can get pretty boring. Luckily, the internet is there for you in the form of free desktop games. Cookie Clicker is the mostly passive game that will let you play while still getting your work done.
In this game, you make and sell cookies. Everything you do is in the service of making more cookies. It’s pretty simple to start. Just click the giant cookie. The more you click, the more cookies you make. As you produce cookies, you can purchase upgrades that help you produce more cookies.
After about five minutes of set up, you can let this game play on auto. I’ve been playing it the entire time I was writing articles for today. The cookies will be produced without you doing anything once you’ve set up all of your passive activities. Every now and then you can check back in and spend your cookie cash on more upgrades. It’s a fun bit of passive gaming that can give you a break from you day without actually taking you away from it.
