Other Comments: 

If you like incremental games, I can guarantee this is one of the best!! Will take some time to beat and could even teach some life lessons, so much fun, but this requires patience and time just all other incremental games. You will have to explore and learn how to progress, but first, the “make paperclips” button is your friend, pay attention to everything that can be clicked at all times
