Chicken or the Egg

Which came first: the chicken or the egg?
Answer: the egg!


A very short game (by design! it was made to be beaten within 5 minutes!) made in one week for the July Game Jam (hosted by @Figburn) on Newgrounds

The theme was very EGGxciting. Can you guess what it was?

This is my first game jam, my first time using Phaser 3, and my first submission to Newgrounds!

Shoutout to @ninjamuffin99 for telling me about this on Twitter and encouraging everyone to participate!

Be sure to check out the EGGxcellent songs linked in the credits. I went to great EGGxtremes to EGGxhibit great EGGxamples of golden eggs in terms of audio.


But in all seriousness, the audio portal on Newgrounds has a lot of hidden gems like these. Go, listen, and be sure to fiffen!

How to Play:

Chicken or the Egg is an idle clicker game where you try to (d)evolve as fast as possible from a dinosaur to a chicken (some scientists suggest that chickens evolved from dinosaurs!) by making eggs.

Get eggs by clicking on the mother or by making babies that will grow up to make more eggs!

A cool feature of the game is the "soft reset" or "prestige" system, which is achieved through the (d)evolutions and features new mothers, babies, environments, and music (which is the best part of this game in my opinion) for each (d)evolution.

The game also rewards you for hoarding or stockpiling more eggs than required for each (d)evolution by giving you bonuses to egg production (for both mothers and babies) in each new (d)evolved form.

Egg time

So clicking for eggs was notbad lots of clicking lol and it is a nice and refreshing feal about the game and makes the experience much more fun indeed, So hope you keep making pixel based graphics and elements in the future but it was a fun game
