Ah yes, casually doing 1.1e23 EONS of work. nothing weird there.

I lost my save file :(

Great game, and I have only seen a little part of it! 

how do I get more experience during master's degree in marketing

I lost my save data! I can't use discord. I had 1 a and 0 g. I had gotten all the milestones for r and f.

Can you remove the wall you hit when you unlock a and g? The best solution I can think of is to add a few upgrades in the extra update upgrades that aren't as powerful but only cost around 5k updates. You would only need to make it powerful enough to reduce productivity reduction by enough to get updates flowing faster.

Can anybody explain why my updates income randomly drops? (I'm new)

The more you have the less you make.

Edit, not updates, the hours at the top.

Ok this is getting old.


as soon as both assignments are done, the game turns into: "how fast can you mash your keyboard?"

for people new to the game, make sure to always have one unspent endpoint, otherwise you aren't actually getting the multipliers that you bought because the multipliers are based off of how many unspent endpoints you have, not have many you have in total.


What? That doesn't seem to be true. I think "depends on how many endpoints you have" is a mistake, and that it actually depends on how many upgrades you've bought. Testing the effects, they don't seem to go away with 0 endpoints. The simplest example I've found is putting 10 points into /experience and comparing that to 10 points into /experience paired with 1 point into /api/v2


Im kinda stuck on 9 enrollments does anyone know how to proceed with the game?

I might be doing something wrong

try different endpoint combinations

What do you need for the l node?



bruh i lost data


Sorry to hear that! If you message me here or on discord I or another community member can help you recreate your save file


how do i get my save file back


To be clear, we can help recreate it. I’d need information on where you were at.


i accidently replied to you oops




i actually forgot where i was at


hey i lost my data i was at the money point where i had almost all upgrades when i had 43 experience and no experience above 50unlocked

YOU TOO?!?!?



Completed it in 93 hours. Loved the game! What a great experience :) Hoping you continue working in game development


117 hours to complete. Great game.


Damn, only doing heat death ^100 hours of work, I'm poor.


i played this game for hours really good game


I can do 1e23 hours of coding work in under a second using my custom-built quantum brain-computer bridge, and now you tell me to go take CS 101?


This is a really good game. 

i lost all my progress ))))))))))))):::::::::

If you join the discord me or one of the community members can help reconstruct a save approximately where you were at. Sorry that happened to you.

its fine i got it all back again



refractions make me confused when i have it on and it is blue does that mean i get that much faster??

omg i just played the whole game while my librabry thing was charging

its still update?


No, game dev tree is a complete experience. There's nothing more to add.



I like this game a lot, feels great after playing Prestige Tree. BTW, there's a typo in the Experience description, it should say "can't even bear" rather than "can't even bare".

Oh, wow I really thought it was "bare" when used in that sense. I looked it up and it definitely would be "bear" not "bare". Thank you for the correction. I'm not sure I'll be making a new build of this game any time soon, but I'll correct that for if/ when that happens.


I didn't see it!!!

how do you write the thesis?  It says you need a lot of hours, but how do I start working on them?

Once you have that amount of hours you can just buy it, like an upgrade.

nice game, but i got stuck, i have 9 enrolments, 4 APIs, 3 goodwill, but i havent unlocked D yet, what APIs and goodwill upgrades do i need to unlock D?

you see this is why we need something that covers up spoilers.


I'm loving this, too! (BUT, I'm BARELY on "EXPERIENCE")!

141h to completion cool game


Am I supposed to have D unlocked before getting the two "unlock an extra Degree program" upgrades from API and good will? I'm at 8 enrollments and have been for hours.

Yes, you should have D unlocked by then. I'd recommend re-speccing A and/or G to boost experience or enrollment gain.


Very cool game, but I seem to keep having a problem that causes my higest updates reachable drop ater upgrading productivity.

Update: unlocking auto update seems to have helped 

cool beans

well made and enjoyed thourouly

very cool game
