Agar.io is a massively-multiplayer top-down strategy browser game created by Matheus Valadares (also known as Zeach) that is based on the actual jelly-like substance agar. In Agar.io, the player manipulates a circular cell using the mouse and keyboard buttons. The goal of the game is to become the biggest cell on the map. To do so, the player should eat smaller cells and survive from bigger cells. Other players that have smaller cells than the player are also able to be eaten. Originally, a browser game, Agar.io entered Steam Greenlight and was subsequently "Greenlit" by the community, with the developers indicating that they planned to add more features not available in the web version of the game.
Agar.io is available to play for free on the website agar.io.
Agar.io has quickly become popular worldwide. Before the Turkish 2015 elections, Agar.io has been used in Turkey for political reasons; some political parties have also used Agar.io in campaign posters as a symbol of support.
Players can also use various skins for their cells.
