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.

This is a fascinating program but also really confusing. Maybe if I was a programmer, it would make more sense. EDIT: Played for a year now and am starting to grok how it works, even if I don't know exactly what computer processes it's simulating, I have gotten a feel for the simulation and progressed. This game is VERY undependent onreal money. One 4.99 purchase removes all ads, that's all the purchases there are, you don't even need to do that if the ads don't bother you.

First the good: It's got potential. The "prestige" actually feels like an upgrade rather than an annoying requirement. Slowness could be a good thing. I like the simplicity. Second the bad: if I don't force stop it every time I close then it eats my battery really fast. I know real networks are hungry, but you should adjust because it's a game. Also, in real life larger networks aren't always better. Suggestions: Regularization. Different kinds of nodes and activation functions.

game goes too slow. the curve for research projects can get to the point where it goes beyond 1.8e+308 money required, which makes them impossible due to the limits of Double. and, as I've unfortunately found out after quite a bit of hours, when money gets that high it turns to "infinite" and causes the comp tab to freeze the game. suffice to say, as the game stands now, it is not possible to "complete". these problems can be fixed, and hopefully they will be. the concept is good,though.
