I only looked at this briefly, but it appears to be mostly text.

You start out with a boring ordinary paperclip factory. Play it right, and you can convert the whole planet into paperclips.
So, if you ever wanted to destroy the world with runaway capitalist robot office supplies, you might give it a try.
If you want to let it run in the background while you do something else, Chrome apparently has problems with this. Firefox supposedly works fine. I dunno about IE / Safari / etc.

Yeah, it was shared on several sites yesterday, and the server couldn't handle the bandwidth. Rumor has it that the developer plans to bring it back at some point.

I think it's back up. Also, a common warning I came across:
Two, make sure you don't buy more than 33 Processors until you have at least 67 Memory, or you will softlock the game.

Well the threadcromancy here is because the game is back, or at least it's available On this site

I'm giving it a try. I do like the number of little minigames involved, albeit it took me a while to work out the stock market, and I like the idea that you basically have to change strategy throughout the game.

Nothing actually inaccessible, though some headings would've helped, also the stock market is rather confusing, or at least the best way I found to deal with it was hit deposit, read the total, and then wait to see if I got a bigger total, and if not sling in more cash.
What is odd is even though stocks go up when you put your cash in initially, you can't withdraw for a while so bare that in mind.

Right now I'm just waiting for enough operations to get people to trust me so I can start producing hypnodrones big_smile.

Interesting, I read about this on Lifehacker awhile ago and never got around to trying it. Glad to see it's back. It's been awhile since a browser game caught my attention, and this did sound like an interesting concept back when I read about it.

The glass is neither half empty nor half full. It's just holding half the amount it can potentially hold.

Unfortunately I played for hours yesterday and seem to have buggered up my game completely in the third stage, the moral of the story seems to be  don't try to figure out complex games while extremely tired from a sleepless night and trust :random guides from redit D.

Someone said to put a lot of points into replication for probes early on, but having lots of replication and no combat ability meant that the drifting probes replicated beyond the point I could actually kill them off even when I created probes of my own with nothing but! combat bonuses, so methinks I'll have to restart completely, which is bloody annoying!

I will say access on this one is a bit odd, since while all the buttons are certainly  labeled there are a few images mentioned in the extremely comprehensive wiki (one which is virtually a stratogy guide and which I really should've trusted instead of random redits).

The biggest issue from an access perspective seems to be quantum computing since there is an image of computer chips which goes dark and light, and you have to wait until it's going light to hit the compute button to maximise your operations.
You can get this through the numbers, ie, if you hit the compute button a couple of times and the plusses seem to be going up, hit it a few more times, but it's rather inexact, so I'd recommend ignoring the guides here and actually putting points into processors to get you ops and creativity faster so you  afford upgrades quicker, though don't go above 30 processors.
