What clicker/incremental game should I play next?

I've been playing Clicker Heroes for ... well, let's not thing too hard about that, shall we? ... but I don't like the new update and it isn't fun.

I've also played a lot of universal paperclips over the last couple of months, and I'm kinda done with it now, I think.

In the past, I've liked Adventure Capitalist and Cookie Clicker. I didn't much like Crusaders of the Lost Idols -- there was just too many variables thrown into the pot too quickly and I never really managed to understand the mechanics of how any of them worked separately.

Eggs Inc? It seems to be unlikely to update so there is an end you can see.

I'm playing Realm Revolutions right now.

How far in the past? Cookie Clicker got some *major* updates in 2016 and 2017 that added more depth; fun to revisit if you'd previously played the older version.

Green the Planet 2. Also, Tiny Sheep.

I enjoyed SPACEPLAN. Looks like it's changed a lot and there are non-free versions now, but the "prototype" is still available. Not exactly a clicker/incremental, but Seedship is also a lot of text-based fun.

I am playing Egg, Inc right now. I tried it, despite it being not at all what I really wanted (something I could play on my laptop, something not too terribly hands on) and now, as is the way with these games, I can't stop. I will likely try a bunch of the others, too.

Thanks, all!

Slidey also seems to be a nice one.

There's Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms if you want your clicker game to have a bit more D&D focus.

Hahah, and now there's a huge update to Egg, Inc.
