Cookie Clicker, an incredibly well-known time-waster among gamers has officially conquered the Steam charts after being available for PC users for just five days. As a result of this newfound fame atop the apex of Steam, other big titles such as Rift Wizard and Cloud Gardens have, of course, been nudged down the ladder. And as for concurrent players, Cookie Clocker has, in fact, cracked the top 15, with a rough 60,000 users logging in to embrace the cookie kingdom.
Of course, this may come as no surprise to most, seeing as Cookie Clicker was once at the top of mobile charts on the Play Store and the App Store. First finding fame back in 2013, the simple yet satisfying time-waster essentially swept the market of all its users locked in boredom. And so, through an incredibly simplistic world in which the only real objective is to bake cookies by tapping a screen, a rather large following soon followed suit. Fast-forward to the present day, and that following has pretty much rekindled over on Steam.
Let’s not sugarcoat it…
Admittedly, it’s unlikely that the beloved Cookie Clicker will survive for another couple of weeks over on the Steam charts — especially with other heavy launch titles soon finding their ways to the platform. Therefore, for what it’s worth — this is a bite-sized victory that’s definitely worth savouring. Although perhaps the size of a chocolate chip — it’s still a milestone that’s worth celebrating. Well played, Team Cookie.
Cookie Clicker launched in 2013 for Android and OS X. You can play the game for $4.99 over on Steam today. And if you’re really in the mood to chow down, then you can even fork out the extra few dollars for the DLC. The DLC, in this case, is a soundtrack. An official Cookie Clicker soundtrack. Is that enough to whet your appetite? You can pick up the bundle here.
