About this game

Perceptron is a new incremental game which is based around the idea of building and training a neural network. The concepts behind a neural network have been distilled to their essence in this idle simulation.

Not to say the game is simple. Sure, it starts simple with only nodes, training, and data, but soon balloons into a complex idle game with prestige and upgrades. Not to mention offline support.

Take on the role of a young undergraduate student as you become quite the idle tycoon. Soon you'll be rivaling even GPT-3.

Perceptron is not just another idle clicker. It was designed around the idea of training a neural network and has taken inspiration from many neural network topics. Who knows, you might even end up learning something.

Had this game on my phone for well over a year. Progress is incredibly slow. It was somewhat enjoyable at the start, but now I can go weeks without any meaningful progress. I'm sure if I started using the microtransactions I'd get boosted much higher. If you're not gonna pay though, be prepared to get to a point where the game just stops progressing. Only reason I keep going is cause of the time I've already committed.

Previously 5-starred, but an update that added microtransactions makes the leaderboards meaningless. It was nice seeing my attention to the game rewarded by steady progress up the ranks, but that's gone now. On its own, the game isn't all that compelling. The progression unlocks don't ultimately change the playstyle all that much. Without a fair ladder I'm not sure what anyone will really find rewarding about the game outside of 100%'ing tiers as a completionist.

This is a really cool concept, but painfully slow, even for an incremental game. Basically I open the game once each morning, push the maybe one or two highlighted buttons that cost way too much for a meaningless boost, set the 5 hour "find open source data" button and then put it away for another day or two. I don't even bother with the 3 second and 24 second data buttons. I'm getting on average 1 minute of interaction per day.
