The RNG Tree is an Idle Game in The Modding Tree by RNGeezus (actually Jacorb90) released on April Fools' Day 2021. Unlike other trees, this game uses a seed from 1 to 999999999 to generate layers, upgrades, and buyables. It's generally slow and unbalanced due to its nature, so trying to reach the third row is going to take a very long time in practically every scenario.

Compare it to The Ascension Tree, which does not use TMT but came out on the same day and has a similar premise (the main difference is this game has a bit of variety but runs into an insurmountable timewall at row 2, while that game is balanced to run for far longer but is extremely repetitive).

You can try it here.

This game provides examples of:

  • Export Save: You can press a button to export the 5KB+ save as text. Each one also saves the seed.
  • Joke Item: It's possible to get an upgrade or buyable that is 100% useless and provides no boost whatsoever, or something so small it's practically worthless.
  • One-Letter Name: All layers have one letter (or some other random symbol) for their corresponding points.
  • Randomly Generated Levels: Try a randomly generated game. All layers are completely random based on a seed you roll at the beginning or input upon hard resetting.
  • Random Number God: The credits state this game is made by RNGeezus, fitting its name.
  • Tech-Demo Game: It's the first game to show off the flexibility of the engine by making a randomly-generated tree.
