A clicker game that went viral across the world in 2021.
Popcat.click started as a simple singleplayer clicker game, inspired by clicker games of old (except less interesting). After the addition of an international leaderboard, it first started gaining attention in Vietnam, before spreading across Nordic countries in April 2021. Popcat.click then went viral in Thailand, including featuring in pro-Democracy protests.
