Factorio can be played either as a single player or online with friends with Factorio server hosting via a third party hosting company. This game has now been fully released on the steam store after coming out of early release.
Factorio is a unique title, one that many people have lost countless hours in. Considered to be a cross between a resource-gathering game and the industrial mods from Minecraft, you have Factorio. In Factorio you crash-land on an alien planet, with practically nothing to your name. You must gather coal, iron, copper, and build the resources you need to make a rocket and escape. While everything can be built by hand, there are some items that can take a long time to finish. Once you discover the freedom of automation, that’s when the best part of the game kicks in.
In this large expansive world, you have all of this free space to put down a number of useful mechanical marvels. For instance, you’re going to need a research centre to learn about certain bits of tech. Plus, the sooner you set up a mass conveyor belt to bring all of your best resources right into the centre of your factory, the better and more efficient. Automation and efficiency is king in Factorio and after the first couple of hours, you’ll do everything in your power to not have to do anything. Just don’t rest too easy, because eventually the pollution is going to attract the alien-inhabitants. Those nasty little things will destroy everything you own if you’re not careful, so be sure to set up some defences.
If things ever get a bit tight, though, you can always bring along a group of 4 separate players. Just by working as a team, you’ll have that rocket up and running in no time at all. Before too long, you will be jetting off into the stars, in search of your home!
The game scores very highly on Steam reviews and this may be down to the game perfecting the elements that appeal to its niche audience. The common feedback for the game summed up would be that:
If you’re a fan of building simulators, we highly recommend checking out Kerbal Space Program. Much like Factorio, the main objective is building and maintaining everything in game. Players start off with little funding and few resources. Relying on working on contracts at the start to build their funds to improve their station. Once a player progresses they are then able to take on their on projects. Which involve building rockets that will help them make new space discoveries.
There is a huge depth to the building system and the developers have added so much more than the basics needed. Everything is so precise including building materials, budgeting and the game physics. Making Kerbal Space Program a must for lovers of strategy and building sims.
Another game that is similar in perspective of technical depth is Stationeers. As the game really makes you work and stretch your thinking to create buildings and objects. The developers “RocketWerkz” were fixated on bringing a technical game for the FPS genre. So many had tried and failed due to reasons such as funding and community.
As of 2018 the game is still in early access and the developers still have much to add to this game. With focus mainly on getting the game to full release within the next few years.
