I don't wanna work, I just wanna Browser Games all day

YaYaYaYa Decent.Registered User regular
so I happen to be at a job that allows me to sit on the internet most of the day in between, you know, working

and Candy Box most recently saved me from a few days of mind-numbing tedium through its own brand of mind numbing tedium

but I need more

more

more

so, can you dudes recommend some browser games? preferably the sort of thing that isn't action-oriented or too flash-heavy, but definitely the sort of thing that'll occupy you for hours on end

alternatively, let's talk flash games

how about Nanaca Crash huh

you guys remember that right

right?

    also Highgrounds is kinda neat, I'll stick with it

    and I should check out Card Hunters

  • WeedLordVegetaWeedLordVegeta Registered User regular
    highgrounds is fairly mindless and super charming

    great combo for a browser game

    never buy NEX from fallen london

    just wait for your actions to come back, check up on the game every few hours

    i ended up buying all of their optional content, and some of it is really cool and some of it isn't. i liked the rubbery murders and your daughter showing up, and some of the other stuff as well. i wanted to get Stormy-Eyed 1 but getting to 18 in Dreams qualities is a giant pain in the ass.

    so basically i tipped them a coupla bucks every few weeks while i was working at a social games studio, if only to not feel awful about what i was doing for a living

    This is absolutely perfect when babby has decided to wake up at 5am and demand to be taken downstairs to play. Except for the fact that I had a strange urge to stay at the computer when 7am came round and it was time to lift weights.

    I've been playing Gods Will Be Watching the last few days.

    My soldier went mad and ran off into the wood, the shrink died of extraterrestrial virus, my engineer killed himself, and I died of Hypothermia on day 14.

    I've also wasted time on 1000-person Bomberman.



    And there's always MMO sprite shooter RPG Realm of the Mad God.

    The first Neptune's Pride sent my roommate and I to a dark, dark place for a couple of weeks.

    Pacing and muttering. Setting alarms for the middle of the night to launch surprise attacks. Taking on the sallow, greasy sheen of intelligence analysts and jonesing heroin addicts.

    That fuckin' game.

    The second one changes it up plenty, though the feel of the game is still there. There's a lot more research types to use and speed tech has been replaced by buying gates at stars (two stars with gates have 3x travel speed between them).

  • PoorochondriacPoorochondriac Ah, man Ah, jeezRegistered User regular
    I like that a lot.

    Hmm, making it mighty tempting to punish myself again.

  • HenroidHenroid Mexican kicked from Immigration Thread Centrism is Racism :3Registered User regular
    Well just in case, here it is: NP2: Triton

    http://triton.ironhelmet.com/

    It's still in active development. The one change that's happened the most is dropping star gate prices a couple of times because people don't really use them.

    In addition to hyperspace range, weapons, and scanning range, the new techs are terraforming (increasing the resources of all stars you own, thus lowering costs of Economy, Industry, and Science), banking (each rank gives $50 more per cycle), manufacturing (increases your industry output), and experimentation. Experimentation is currently my favorite. Each rank gives you 4 research points toward a random tech every hour (remember that each Science facility gives 1 point an hour, but they're expensive to build). So at rank 3 experimentation you're dropping 12 research points. It's random, but it's sorta better than investing money into science. At least until you need to work toward specific things.

    the former is an arcade-style dogfighting game with very nifty aerobatics

    the latter is turn-based dogfighting tactics

    both are excellent

    I tend to just go to Kongregate and check out games that are highly rated. There are a hell of a lot of games sorted by category, and I've found a lot of good stuff over the years.

    there is a dedicated thread that was recently brought back, it's probably on page four or something now. The opening pages will have good info for starting players.
