In Cookie Clicker Classic

The time machine was introduced in the 0.125 update. It costs 123,456,789 cookies, and is the most expensive of all the items, at their base levels. It produces 123,456 cookies per 5 seconds.

Adding 24,691.2 CpS (cookies per second), it is approximately 18.5203 times quicker than the Portal. It also makes some grandmas wear a pink jumpsuit with a visor, a hoverboard, and a green rolling pin, leading the assumption that these grandmas came from the future.

Trivia

  • The time machine's store icon is based on the Marie-Antoinette watch.
  • Since the full release of Cookie Clicker, the time machine was the only building to have a store icon completely different from its appearance in the buildings overview. With the release of the Javascript Console, there are now two.
  • A time machine is a fictional machine used in numerous works of Science Fiction; the revamped model loosely resembles the clockpunk designs used in films based on the novel The Time Machine.
  • Until v2, when the prices and yields were readjusted to account for the new buildings, all of the base costs and yields associated with the time machine were made up of sequential numbers, counting forwards from 1 to 9, backwards from 9 to 1 or even from 9 down to 4 then up to 9 again.
  • The "Flux Capacitor" upgrade, as well as its flavor text ("Bake to the future"), are references to the 80's classic film "Back to the Future."
  • The "Quantum Conundrum" upgrade and its flavor text are a reference to the 2012 video game of the same name.
  • The flavor text on the "Time Paradox Resolver" upgrade ("No more fooling around with your own grandmother") may be a reference to the show Futurama episode 51 ("Roswell that Ends Well") or to the famous grandfather paradox.
  • The achievement "cookie clicker forever and forever a hundred years cookie clicker, all day long forever, forever a hundred times, over and over cookie clicker adventures dot com" is a reference to the popular cartoon "Rick and Morty"
  • The achievement "Heat Death" is a reference to a theory on how the universe might end. "Heat death" is the state of the universe once all available energy is at an equilibrium, such that effectively nothing can happen.
  • The achievement "Groundhog Day" is a reference to the 1993 movie of the same name.
  • The achievement "The years start coming" is a reference to Smash Mouth's "All Star".
  • The achievement "Invited to yesterday's party" may be a reference to the party theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking threw for time travelers. He only told everyone about it the day after he did it. His idea was that time travelers would show up on the party day, since no one else knew about it in that day.
