Version 1.1

  • Windows can now be dragged and arranged freely. The layout is saved together with your progress.
  • Added a button to start a new game after winning.
  • Fixed the game freezing when you reach 275,760 AD. (Try it!)
  • A few performance optimization should now result in smoother frame rate.

Version 1.0

The initial version submitted for the Gamedev.js Jam 2020.

nooooo i wanna play this so bad but im stuck in a time loop in the classical era 

how do i reset after closing new game window lol


The option to advance to a new era seems to be broken. It doesn't show a progress bar, and I got the notification that I've reached the far future but for some reason I still am not able to advance past the industrial era.

bro what


Hello Vsauce Michael here what is time? Like really...


Short and sweet. Really liked that you added 3d visualisation themes that are unique per era.


Ok... A few nitpicks, but this is one of THE BEST clicker games i have ever played.

Deleted post

My game just got reset with no apparent reason. What happened?

(1 edit)

This just leads perfectly into the next comment lol but seriously you probably reset the game on accident because you got to the Future and there's an option to reset

5 billion years later.

The sun has collapsed into a white dwarf and the earth has been engulfed by its red giant phase.

if i just sat my date to 100bc do i win lmao



I don't know if this counts as beating the game but...

...I know I can go farther but this is about as far as my patience is willing to take me right now. Might come back to this tho

Well done! And congrats for reaching this far without buying any of the auto-clocks. If I can tease you a little bit, you're only 35,000 clicks away from the "Really Far Future" popup :)


I already got that popup a while ago, I think got 3 popups total including the one that says I beat the game (iirc)


Version Control

A polynomial growth incremental game heavily inspired by Antimatter Dimensions that features updates. Get through all of the updates and turn your Darkness Dimensions into something else! Made for Void Development Jam.

bro stop advertising

He is not the Creator so I don't know if this would count as advertising or just a sponsor but I do understand what you're talking about but the game is not by the person and I don't even think they're affiliated with it well not like the game they make a bunch of comments but they're not affiliated with the Creator


tbh if not for the graphics, this game would be one of THE games I've played here ;)


Cool game! I can't stop thinking if ppl will play this a thousands of years from now...

Anyway, it's a nice clock, also - once you have your taskbar hidden. LOL

how to reset progress/

really addictive! only took me not even an hour (including every other era before it except the beginning one, I slept before I finished that era)   



Adding more content would be awesome, maybe more eras?

Postearth Era- We leave Earth and colonize mars and more planets.

Ultramatter Era- We start using Antimatter commonly.

Wormhole Era- Wormholes start being used.

Cosmic Era- We become a T3 Kardachev.

Multiverses, megaverses... after that.

Even more creative prestiges would be welcome too!

9.3/10 to 6.8/10, time engages you, but a bit too fast.

I feel like the only way you could do those is if you added a space background but then what would you put for the things just a bunch of spaceships you got to think like you're the developer before you recommend things :)

cool idea!

If only there was a way for the game to continue past 275,760 AD, perhaps until the end of the universe, and beyond. (Date would need to be stored as just the year, more eras would need to be added, and maybe a second layer of prestige at 10^100 years from now)

I guess we could use BigInt to store the timestamp in seconds, but we'd need to find a different way to format the date then. Right now we use Intl.DateTimeFormat and the Gregorian calendar. But who knows what the calendars of the far future will look like! :)

Love the look of it and how all the building rise up. Good fun :)


 I was curious what would happen if I reached a max int value, but the game finally stopped counting at a curious number.

Then I went to leave a comment, so I had to log in, and the game started again, at an earlier date - until it froze again at this one:



Dates are limited to 100,000,000 days before or after the epoch of 1 January 1970 AD 00:00:00 UTC for precision reasons. You seem to be hitting this future limit (275760 AD), causing your date to stop increasing.

The dates stop earlier than that because adding the time per game tick to the current date goes past the limit.

Yep, that's exactly what's happening. Or, to put it differently: according to the ECMA-262 standard, there's no future beyond 275,760 AD ;)


Thanks! Curiosity quelled. That's really interesting.

This is now fixed in version 1.1 of the game. Technically, there's still a limit but it's very very very very very high :)


Do you mean that the limit is so high that the heat death of the universe (and even the collapse of the false vacuum, see https://arxiv.org/pdf/1707.08124.pdf) would have occurred by the time said limit is reached?

10 quintillion years

I understand that this is a huge accomplishment but this is near completely unrelated but this does tell us that the limit is not a 64-bit integer so that's neat I guess

9 quintillion
