I Left Clicker Heroes Running All Night, And Here's What Happened

What you’re witnessing is monsters dying as fast as they’re spawning. I couldn’t even click them.


For the uninitiated, Clicker Heroes is a massively popular Steam game that nearly plays itself. Monsters appear on screen, and then you click them until they die. Or they die on their own, more quickly depending on your total DPS (which you can continually improve by spending gold).

I left my game running over night, and when I came back I had so much gold that Scrooge McDuck would’ve drowned in it. So I spent it all, but I never left the stage I’d been on that whole time. As a result, my “heroes” were all massively over-leveled. Merely existing in my presence proved fatally corrosive to all monsters. It was like they’d seen the face of god, only with less melting and more money pinata explosions.

To increase your enjoyment of that little slice of absurdity, I recommend pairing the above GIF with this song:
