Algebraic Progression

Posted May 10, 2023. Updated August 18, 2023. Played 5345 times for a total of 18550 hours.


Math-based incremental game, mainly focused on Algebra. Features mechanics like Variables, Functions, Square Root, Quadratic Formula, and more. Has 2 prestige layers and a mini-prestige. Your goal is to collapse the universe, so good luck with that.

Thank you to @manfroze#9931 for the thumbnail, it means a lot!

Things you might like

  • There is always a sense of unfolding progress. Every now and then, you'll unlock a new mechanic or an extension to an old mechanic to keep you going.
  • There are many, many upgrades! Buy all of the upgrades!
  • There is heaps of automation to allow you to stop managing old mechanics and start managing new mechanics.
  • This game is linear at first, but gets a lot more strategic later on.
  • There is a Textbook tab that allows you to read about mechanics you're confused about! You can also peek at formulas and stuff, for all those math nerds out there.
  • Offline progress! In other words, resources keep producing while the game is closed.

Things you might not like

  • While there are many idle sections, this game is primarily active. You can't wait your way through this.
  • This game requires some brain usage to complete it. This is not a linear, whack-an-upgrade TMT game where you go through one mechanic at a time. This is an unfolding, nonlinear, strategic game where you have to manage a lot of things at once.
  • Some people don't like challenges in incremental games. This game has challenges, and they are very important. In fact, some challenges are fairly strategic. If you don't like challenges, don't play this game.
  • The tab navigation can be very exhausting and confusing when you have a lot of things unlocked.
  • There's a news ticker. Nobody likes news tickers.

The Options Update v2.3.3 August 18, 2023

Note: This is the final official patch for Algebraic Progression. Minor fixes may be added to this changelog over time, but this isn't a guarantee.
-Added an option to change the autosave interval.
-Added an offline progress modal.
-Added 5 new notations (Engineering, Logarithm, Mixed, Hexadecimal, Blind). Not all values are affected by notations.
-Fixed a bug where having NaN points gave you all point-based Achievements and sometimes triggered the ending sequence.
-Fixed a bug where you can gain lots of Challenge Essence by unlocking Root Epicenter while in Square Root.
-Replaced the AP Classic link with a working one.
-Finally made Building buy max work correctly.
-Actually fixed Quadratic Formula display issues.
-Actually fixed the visual issue with Auto-Quadratic mode.
-Disabled modals on the version.

Sacrificing doesn't sacrifice event when auto mater is off. Rename sacrifice because it doesn't reset x or y.

developer response: It does reset x and y, however your autobuyers buy them back immediately.

Are you supposed to be able to 100% fill the universe? I'm currently stuck without completing challenges 5, 6, 8, and 10.

developer response: Yes, but much much much later. If you need help completing Challenges, I suggest purchasing buyables in Quadratic Formula.

how do you get y-quadratic upgrade 10?

developer response: remember that y-quadratic resets your sacrificed currencies

Why are you playing this game? It's just a meaningless number going up with no implications on realty.

Uhh, am I really about to wait 18+ hours to get the 2 million Quadratics achievement? Or is there another way? That is a ridiculous one!

developer response: Use Complex Upgrade 7 to get more Quadratics faster.

"Here's a fun game look at the code in game.js and take a shot for every if statement" idk if you could live that man.

PSA - if you cant close the offline box you get when coming back to the game, press escape on your keyboard. Pls fix :)

developer response: This is a galaxy-specific issue. I currently don't know how to fix this at the moment

First incremental game to burn into my monitor. 5/5

Little protip for the quadratics formula part - if b^2 - 4ac >= 0, the root(s) are real. B should always be maximum and then you need to make it so 4 * a * c is less than b^2, emphasis on a being as high as possible
