The Leveling Tree is an Idle Game made in The Modding Tree by Denis Berger and released in 2020. It has you level up to earn experience and make level ups go faster. Once you earn enough exp, you can earn gold, find loot, go on quests, typical RPG stuff in TMT style.

The game is playable here.

This game provides examples of:

  • Absurdly Low Level Cap: Subverted. You can reach the initial limit of 1,000,000 for levels in an hour from the start of the game. The rest of row 2 and most of the Skills layer is spent without it increasing, with you reaching the limit in seconds after resets. However, it gets increased a bit with the 16 skill milestone and a lot with each ninth challenge completion and treasures, so the real cap is effectively unreachable.
  • Challenge Run: The Quests tab has eight challenges which lower production or get rid of an aspect entirely. Each challenge can be completed 12 or 13 times, with its rewards increasing with every completion.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience:
    • XP: Green
    • Gold: Yellow
    • Loot: Blue
    • Rubies: Red
    • Quests: Purple
    • Skills: Orange
    • Treasures: White
    • Damage: Dark red
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: Before v0.2, the game looked like an average TMT game. The update changed the graphics and style so much that it started looking truly unique. The notation system also used to make certain incredibly large numbers look like unrecognizable nonsense.
  • Export Save: You can export the 2KB+ savefile into the clipboard and paste it into a window that pops up.
  • Level Drain: It's possible for the game to start subtracting levels if you lose something that boosts level gain, like loot.
  • LOL, 69: The "Nice." upgrade costs 1.00e69 loot, while the “Very nice.” upgrade costs 6.90e420 loot.
  • New Game Plus: Several nodes reset all previous nodes for their resources.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Version was called "Only 2 first tiers and a bit of third", but it had fleshed out three rows and a bit of fourth.
  • Reset Milestones: Starting from the Rubies layer, gaining enough of a reset currency may grant a milestone. Some provide a passive resource gain or automatically buy upgrades, but most of them grant some kind of boost that improves production.
