    Default Factorio - Factory building game

    What is Factorio?

    Factorio ([url]http://www.factorio.com[/url]) is a 2d creative game about building and maintaining a factory.

    What do I do in the game?

    You will be in charge of a character that is building a factory from scratch. You will be mining resources, automating production, managing energy sources, designing the flow of items in your factory, researching technologies and defending from hostile creatures.

    What is the game inspired by?

    We drew a lot of inspiration from Transport Tycoon-like games, Civilization and Minecraft.

    Why should I care?

    This game is made by geeks for geeks. The core of the game is building things. You can create huge almost self sufficient factories. There are machines crafting other machines. All the stuff is travelling on transport belts. There are simple means of "programming" the robotic arms that move things around. You also have little logistic robots that transport things among designated containers. The ultimate goal of course is to have self replicating factories

    When & where can I get it?

    Public demo is available at [url]http://www.factorio.com[/url] (win, osx, ubuntu linux). Go and try it now.
    The game is at the moment raising funds for further development. If it succeeds the alpha will be released in March 2013.

    I want to know more

    You can get more information on the webpage linked above. There is a trailer, screenshots, plot, etc.

    This is how the game looks like at the moment:

    This looks, rather intriguing, will take a look.

    Better than our usual social game and minecraft clone spam were used to at least.

    I had a go, really like the mechanics and the idea, wish you luck with this, only issue I have is the graphics, are these final textures and such, or do you have any mind to change them at all?

    Hello, these are not final textures at all, one of the main reasons we are making the foundraising campaign is to get better graphics.

    This looks really good. I played the demo and had a lot of fun. Is it possible to configure the robotic arm to pickup items of only a certain kind ?

    Hi hedgehog, it is possible, using the filter inserter: [url]http://kovarex.com/wiki/index.php/Inserter#Filter_inserter[/url]

    The filter inserter is not available in the demo, but if you want to test the game, pm me request for the key to get beta tester account access.
