"Cookie Clicker" Takes Japanese Fan Artists By Storm

Browser game inspires everything from a Gumi music video to a doujinshi event

Browser game KanColle has had a looming presence on otaku landscape for about the last six months, but recently it's picked up some company from unexpected quarters. Cookie Clicker is a Javascript game in which you bake cookies by clicking on a giant cookie until you have enough cookies to buy upgrades, released by French developer Orteil in August 10.

 

And, now Cookie Clicker is the bizarre object of Japanese fan artists' fascination.

 

There's a Gumi song by EinsteinP (English from AmeSubs)

 

There's a dedicated doujinshi event, set to take place November 4th at Ota City Industria lPlaza, with a submission deadline set for September 26 - banner illustration by  閃虹丸(OBA-Q HONPO QT)

The event will have opportunities to distribute flying, sell doujinshi and goods, as well as a rock-paper-scissors tournament

 

And, it's now all over Pixiv, with plenty of KanColle cross-overs
