What Is 'Banana' Game?

The Banana game is a simplistic clicker video game that offers very little in terms of gameplay. You install the game, you click on the banana, and the game tracks how many times you click on it. The only interface in the game is the clickable banana in the middle of the screen, a settings window that has a Discord link, and a button that takes you to the Steam store for the game.

Unlike other popular clicker games such as Cookie Clicker and Adventure Capitalist, the game really offers zero development or any other gameplay in addition to clicking the fruit and getting the number higher.


So what's keeping thousands of players in the game? The secret is that a major part of the experience happens outside of it. Every three to 18 hours, the players get a drop in their Steam inventories: a banana-themed item that can be sold on Steam Market. Every so often, a new type of item gets added to the drop pool — so far there are 77 different versions of them.

Most of them go for pennies, providing you with the prime "Your item has been sold on Steam Marketplace." However, some rarer bananas such as Crypticnana and Sad Hamster Banana are being sold for hundreds of dollars. On June 10th, someone bought Special Golden Banana for a whopping $1,378, the biggest sale that's happened so far.

That's the main reason players keep the game launched. It barely takes any resources and gives you a chance of getting a rare banana to sell to somebody else. While the player numbers do look impressive, with the game so far peaking at 377,000 simultaneous players, the game developers (a team of four devs scattered across the globe) admit that many of these game instances are simply bots who are farming digital bananas.

Now, why people are even buying these bananas? Some just like collecting digital stuff, while others hope to sell them at a larger price when the game becomes even more viral and continues drawing a banana-hungry audience (quite similar to how Ponzi schemes work, except that the game is completely free).
