The Genshin Impact click-and-drag game trend is one that truly highlights just how much its anime art style has helped it find such early success throughout the past year.

Come for the action RPG gameplay, stay for the fantasy world-building of Teyvat. It's safe to say that as great of a game that Genshin Impact is, its voice acting and character designs have gone a large way toward keeping its community coming to its servers.

In addition to endless amounts of fan art and cosplays, one way those in the community have expressed their appreciation for Genshin Impact has been click and drag games.

Genshin Impact Click and Drag Game: What is it?

Essentially, click and drag games, such as those dedicated to the Genshin Impact fandom, are a harmless way for people to go over their most and least liked characters from the game. Often found on Tumblr, click-and-drag games invite fans of any form of pop culture to "test their luck" and compare their results with one another.

Pulling from a pool of in-game characters, click and drag games can "reveal" anything from your "companion," to your moral "enemy."

Unlike the actual game, click and drag Genshin Impact games don't require a launcher install. Instead they operate in any internet browser—except for Google Chrome.

The reason for this is the "gameplay" of click and drag games requires participants to stop and pull frames with different characters from rapidly moving GIFs. Whichever character a person clicks and drags for that scenario is their result.

Browsers such as Safari and Firefox tend to work best since the GIFs always lock onto their first frame on Chrome. Those on mobile can simply take a screenshot of the GIFs.
