Popyut Beta is here! The Thai remake of the Popcat classic is finally available, and setting new internet records. Popyut click!
But, I hear you cry, what is Popyut? How good is the Thai PM at football? Can the glorious Thai people set a new record of clicking on things?! Read below to find out more.
Popyut vs Popcat
Popcat was the original click game which took the internet by storm. Developed by Edward Halls, web developer and apparent web marketing genius, Popcat featured an image of a cat that gradually moved it’s mouth into a wide grin with every click.
The game had a ranking system below it that showed the total number of clicks from clickers of each nation, and Thailand is the current champion with a massive 48.4 billion clicks! A significant lead over second place Taiwan with 36.3 billion.
Popyut Click Game - What's It All About?
Against the backdrop of the recent coup in Thailand and the political fallout which has resulted from it, the new game mocks Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha in a miniature football match he had with other Thai government officials. Clicking on the Prime Ministers head cycles through various images of the ball being taken from him, resulting in him falling to the ground. Sensational.
The developer behind Popyut is the same one who created a 120 day countdown clock, designed to hold Prayuth to his promise (deemed unlikely) to reopen the country following COVID-19.
Whether Prayuth will stick to his promise remains to be seen, but there seems to be little doubt that Thais will be the biggest clickers of the Popyut click game once again.
The Popyut click page is currently only in Beta. We aren’t sure what extra features the developer intends to add, but personally, we cannot wait to find out!
Will there be more shots of the Thai PM falling over? Will we get to enjoy further meme based satire from Thailand? Perhaps other countries will join in the fun
Until then, keep on clicking his face! Popyut click!
