Game Description

This seemingly simplistic game provides a deeper experience than many incrementals. It provides a simple interface comprised of a number of progress bars, each representing a different type of resource. The player must gather enough money to hire a number of workers to produce raw materials, then hire several more workers to sell products made of those materials. It's a careful balancing game designed to make you decide which resource is more important to make the biggest profit.

The Premise
In Progress Bars, your goal is to run an international conglomerate company and make oodles of cash. To accomplish this, you're gonna need some workers. But before that, you'll need some cold, hard cash.

Making Money
  1. Click the Earn Money button to start generating income.
  2. Once you have enough money, buy your first Worker.
  3. Put this worker on wood-gathering duty by clicking the + button next to Wood.
  4. Watch! The worker will slowly gather wood, increasing your supply.
  5. Now get a few more workers and allocate them to Wood and Forest.
  6. You'll notice that Wood will get a 2x synergy bonus. This happens when you have some supply of Forest when your workers gather Wood.
  7. After a little while, you'll unlock Commodity Sales. Put some workers into sales.
  8. Every time the sales bar fills up, your workers will transport 50% of the supply of each resource into the sales warehouse.
  9. Next time when the sales bar fills up, your workers will sell 50% of the supply that is in the sales warehouse itself.
  10. Continue playing and see what you can discover!

Nodes
There are 4 different types of nodes:
  • Biomes - like the Forest
  • Resources - like Wood and Rubber
  • Sales - like Commodity Sales
  • Tools - like Cut Tools

Quadrants
The game is divided into four quadrants. Each quadrant focuses on a specific Biome. The first biome to be unlocked is Forest.
Each biome has two resources associated with it, and also receives bonuses from two types of tools.

Synergy Bonuses
Synergy bonuses are awarded when you meet certain conditions. Each resource can receive several synergy bonuses:
  • 2x from the nearby Biome node
  • 2x from the nearby Biome node when that Biome has 80% supply or more
  • 2x from the nearby Tool node
  • 2x from the nearby Tool node when that Biome has 80% supply or more

The maximum synergy bonus at the start of the game is 16x.

Experience, Level, and Sales Multiplier
Each node has a level. The level raises slowly over time as workers work there.
When a Tool, Biome, or Resource node gains a level: 1) the unit price of the goods in that node go up, 2) your sales multiplier increases by 0.05x.
When a Sales node gains a level: 1) the node gains 10 more max supply, 2) your sales multiplier increases by 0.10x.
Your sales multiplier affects the sale rate of all of your resources, so improving it is critical to generating tons of money.

ClickerThis game provides a graphically pleasing and mechanically broad experience. There are a wide range of options available to the player, secrets, achievements, and more. You are required to create Bots, buy Factories, grow your Queen, perform Research, forge Implants, find Treasures, Evolve, and Prestige. Transcendence at stage 14 will bring a wormhole delivering free factories.Bots and FactoriesBots are the main currency of the game and, as with most incrementals, can be gathered manually or automatically through the construction of buildings. Buildings can provide a number of changes to bots, from giving more per manual click to more per automated click.The factories are just as important, providing a way to automate the process entirely. They will provide an income of bots, which can then be used to improve other aspects of the game.The QueenThe queen is important to gameplay in that it can help you either gather bots or research. Both of these things are vital to progress further in the game. The queen, at certain points in the game, can evolve into a larger being, providing more and more bonuses.Implants can be crafted and applied to the queen during the game to boost the queen's effects. ResearchResearching is completed by the queen once it is available. The queen must be set to research specific upgrades one at a time. These upgrades affect a number of different aspects of the game, from resources per click to automated resource production and more. Once they have been researched, they need to be manually activated before their effects are applied.EvolutionThis is a staging mechanic that allows you to progress through the game in set stages. Each evolutionary form represents a new level in the game. New upgrades become available, new options in the forge become available, and the missed secrets from the last level are lost and replaced with those of the new level. Evolution is performed by researching the required upgrade (Evolution: Stage X), then activating it. An "Evolve" button presents itself, which enables the player to move on to the next stage.Once evolution is complete, the queen must once again grow to 100% before researching can be started again.SecretsScattered throughout each stage are a number of secret, clickable objects. Each of these provide a small to moderate once off bonus to bots. Once a stage has been passed, the secrets from that stage can no longer be found, thus the achievements attached to them are lost until the game is prestiged and the stage once again attained.LaboratoryThe laboratory can be used to gamble bots in the hope of achieving free bots in return. This works similar to a slot machine, and has a fairly balanced return rate. However, there is a chance that upon using the machine, a virus outbreak can occur.A virus outbreak gradually eats away at your bots. It is represented by a bot moving around the screen randomly. To dismiss the outbreak, the player must click on the bot floating around the screen enough times that it disappears.External LinksChange Log
