We’ve all seen loading screens across various different games that we played. Considering how often they appear in titles, it was about time that they get their own game. Loading Screen Simulator is brought to us by CakeEaterGames. This is the first and so far the only title of the Russian one-man studio. It started as a time-waster placed on the developer’s website, but it migrated to Steam once it was approved by this platform.
Can You Load the Screen?
The first thing we need to clear up is that you shouldn’t take this game seriously. Although it is called a simulator, there is a reason why it’s put in the casual category. The Loading Screen Simulator is a classic clicker made to waste your time. Although it is extremely simple, there are a few surprises that wait along the way. But we’ll get to that later. Once you start the game, you will notice the loading screen that has only begun filling. Your goal is to get that meter up to the top. The way to do that is to earn some money and purchase upgrades that will speed up the loading time. Making money is a lot easier than in real life since all you have to do is to click the button at the top of the screen. Each click will earn you a random amount of cash that can vary from one cent to several dollars. It doesn’t matter how often or how fast you click – it’s truly random.
Visit the Shindows Shop and Buy Apps
You can spend that money in your Shindows Shop. It’s not a typo; that is the name of your in-game OS. As for the apps that you can buy, some of them are as cheap as $15 or as expensive as $600. The cheapest ones are those that are showing how much time you spent within the game and what is the estimated time left until the screen loads. You can ignore the latter one since it’s only there to make you smile (or annoy you). Some apps can indeed help you in the Loading Screen Simulator. For example, the Console Shindow enables you to type in a command to speed up the process. To find the right command, you will have to answer a series of random questions in correct order. You can also buy the Shindows Media Player to make your journey more enjoyable. Unfortunately, the player only plays a single song, but the good news that the melody is very soothing. It seems that the best way to get to the end is to donate (virtual) money to the developers. That is how I managed to get to the end in less than thirty minutes. Oh, keep in mind that there are several endings so you might play this clicker whenever you have a bit of free time.
