The overall aim is to conquer the world. This is done by engaging in massive war, which means killing – mass killing. Killing is done by clicking and releasing bonus kills. Buying military buildings and upgrades will also aid increasing the kill capacity.

Uncensored story-driven Idle Game
The idle game genre seemed like an obvious choice. To quote IGN’s Justin Davis;
‘Idle Games seem perfectly tuned to provide a never-ending sense of escalation, super addictive, super dumb – and I mean that in the most affectionate way possible.‘
Compared to existing idle games, we wanted something richer, with more complexity, a clear storyline, beautiful graphics, and a proper ending.
To facilitate this line of thinking, we added a slightly morbid war theme as well as a progressive storyline, in which the player takes the role of an edgy but heroic female character, and we fused it with a touch of comic art.
In addition the game should be ‘play to win’, not ‘pay to win’. We didn’t want to constrain ourselves in any way either, for instance by paying attention to PEGI/PG ratings or be bound by the terms and conditions of external distribution channels.
So the browser based game Idle Killer was born.

You play a female soldier named Boatema, who has been an active militia member since her childhood. Boatema grew to become a cold-blooded warrior due to a life of pain and misery. Having been forced into becoming a child soldier at the age of ten, she now seeks power and control, to set things straight, and to deal with her demons.
Battle Drone camera feeds from your Quest
The story is told gradually, by unlocking the drone camera feeds from around the world, with unique handdrawn comic book style illustrations, reading the news ticker with breaking news and war stories, and watching the highly multi-layered military base evolve.
