Use your imagination to design your factory, and protect it from the creatures who don’t really like you.
Factorio is a real-time strategy video game developed by Wube Software. Join forces with other players in cooperative Multiplayer, create huge factories, collaborate and delegate tasks between you and your friends. The player has to survive by finding and harvesting resources to build tools and machines, which can then create more advanced materials to allow for the creation of more sophisticated technologies. In the beginning you will find yourself chopping trees, mining ores and crafting mechanical arms and transport belts by hand, but in short time you can become an industrial powerhouse, with huge solar fields, oil refining and cracking, manufacture and deployment of construction and logistic robots, all for your resource needs. The game is “won” by launching a rocket with a satellite. Constructing the rocket takes massive amounts of resources, forcing the player to set up an sizable effective factory to complete the game. The game follows a spaceman who was sent to an alien planet ahead of colonists from Earth. He and his crew were to set up a base equipped with missile defense to defend the landing of earth’s colony ships. Not everything goes according to plan as the protagonist crashes on the planet. Because of this, he has to first harvest his resources by hand in order to build up an industrial infrastructure, and face inhabitants of the planet who defend their environment.

This game will eat your soul. Factorio combines the base building elements of a real time strategy game with automation in an amazing way. You can play at your own pace, constructing a mega-awesome factory to do whatever you want. You will spend hours making a complex system to create green science packs then you split four things off that line and spend another hour finding and fixing the problem. In all seriousness Factorio is a game that ended up being much better than I expected it to be. The only limitation on the gameplay is your own skill, so when things go well, you feel proud, and when they don't it feels like it's your fault, because it is. Factorio is a wonderful game for anyone who enjoys managing resources and manufacturing to achieve the ultimate goal. There will be challenge, but there will be glory along side it.
