Cookie Clicker Wiki

The Cookieverse (not to be confused with the Cookie Planets) is one of the locations you harvest cookies from in Cookie Clicker.


A portal to the Cookieverse in Cookie Clicker Classic.

What We Know[]

It is unknown where the Cookieverse is located, or what lives inside it, but what we do know is this:

  1. The Cookieverse is a universe that contains mass amounts of cookies.
  2. The Cookieverse can be accessed via Portal.
  3. The portal to the Cookieverse is opened after spending 1,000,000,000,000 Cookies on a portal.
  4. Strange creatures live there and sometimes emerge into our world. "News: Nation worried as more and more unsettling creatures emerge from dimensional portals!"
  5. The Cookieverse is a popular place for tourists. "News: Tourism to cookieverse popular with bored teenagers! Casualty rate as high as 73%!"
  6. The portals can corrupt and mutate human beings. "News: "do not settle near portals," says specialist; "your children will become strange and corrupted inside.""
  7. The portals can cause humans to age quickly and become obsessed with baking. This is most likely a reference to Grandmas. "News: Cookieverse portals suspected to cause fast aging and obsession with baking, says study."
  8. The portals are known to cause city-engulfing disasters. "News: Dimensional portals involved in city-engulfing disaster!"
  9. The Portal to the Cookieverse is often linked to Hell, considering its frequent use of the number 666.


The Grandmatriarchs as they appear in Stage 3 of the Grandmapocalypse are similar in appearance to how some Grandmas look when you upgrade them to "Altered grandmas," an upgrade which is unlocked when you get 15 Portals. It is unknown if we will ever be able to see inside the Cookieverse via minigame or another way.

In the current version of Cookie Clicker, portals appear in front of a brown soil-like background, possibly made of dirt or chocolate. There are many theories as to what this could be:

  • A view from the inside of the Cookieverse
  • Parts of the Cookieverse leaking through the portals
  • A manmade area reserved for all portal construction

The Cookieverse is most likely unrelated to the Idleverse, implying that the Cookie Clicker universe is actually a multiverse containing other universes(like see in the Fractal Engine and Antimatter Condenser flavor texts)

The game occasionally hints that the Cookieverse is actually a dimension.[1]While contradictory to the name "Cookieverse," this fits well with the previous theory, as this would mean the Cookie Clicker universe would be consistent with other Idleverses, and the Cookieverse would be its own dimension as opposed to an Idleverse or part of a multiverse. The validity of this theory is questionable though, as the game often uses the terms "universe" and "dimension" synonymously.


  • The Cookieverse portal was originally a reference to the Oblivion Gates (From The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion) in Cookie Clicker Classic. It is possible that the Cookieverse could be another name for the Daedric Realms from The Elder Scrolls Games.
  • Along with the Cookieverse, there are Cookie Planets as well.
  • The Cookieverse exists in Nested, one of Orteil's other games.
  • The portal is the only building to contain a (most likely) procedurally generated background, as opposed to the hand-drawn backgrounds of other buildings.
  • There is a portal upgrade named "His advent" which speaks of a cosmic being turned into cookies.
