What is IGM? IGM
is an acronym for I
aker (TM, by Orteil)
, which is a game making tool (or engine of sorts) that allows anybody to make their own Idle Games, like Cookie Clicker(also by Orteil)
¡-! By the way, this is the Idle Game Maker subreddit / community.
Wanna make your own games?
Check out IGM here on Orteil's site: Idle Game Maker
, which has a handbook to learn how to make games, and an example game.
Need help making games?
Please read Orteil's manual (at least a little) first, and then come here for more help and answers to your questions. Orteil's Manual: IGM Handbook
Check out our Help Pages by going here: Help Homepage
, or search for posts on this subreddit with the tag "Help".
You can go to our Example Games List

Please check out all of the complete games and leave some reviews on them. Game reviews can be put below in the comments, but it is better
if you make a post of them.
Also, there many games lying around that could use some sprucing up. So, please feel free to fix up a game by adding in some icons, improving some descriptions, fixing bugs, or adding some much needed things to it.
Whenever you make, or fix a game, make a post on it and ask for feedback. You should then use the feedback people give you to improve your game.
Did we miss any games? If so, then tell us what we missed (give a link to a post with the game's link in it).
