Factorio PC Game
Factorio is a game in which you build and maintain factories. You will be mining resources, researching technologies, building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies. 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. However this heavy exploitation of the planet’s resources does not sit nicely with the locals, so you will have to be prepared to defend yourself and your machine empire.
Join forces with other players in cooperative Multiplayer, create huge factories, collaborate and delegate tasks between you and your friends. Add mods to increase your enjoyment, from small tweak and helper mods to complete game overhauls, Factorio’s ground-upModding support has allowed content creators from around the world to design interesting and innovative features. While the core gameplay is in the form of the freeplay scenario, there are a range of interesting challenges in the form of the Scenario pack, available as free DLC. If you don’t find any maps or scenarios you enjoy, you can create your own with the in-game Map Editor, place down entities, enemies, and terrain in any way you like, and even add your own custom script to make for interesting gameplay.
There is no denying the existence of the crafting system. Within this genre, there exists a subset of games which use this as one of their main mechanics; in isolation, this mechanic can quickly become tiresome and boring.Factorio, developed by Wube Software over the past four years, has taken this concept and adds intricacy to a simplistic system.
With a focus on automation, Factorio allows the player to manage the smallest details of their resource collection process. By borrowing elements from management simulators and real-time strategy, Factorio is all about player control, and can quickly get overwhelming if you’re unprepared. The sheer amount of options and level of detail is staggering, and is certainly best experienced first-hand. Fortunately, a demo is available to help players come to grips with the game before fully jumping in.
You’ll generally start a game by gathering resources manually in order to create basic components and machines to automate mining and other basic tasks. You’ll then use those basic components to create more advanced components and machines which will take over some manual tasks like mining. Eventually you’ll start researching the multitude of advanced technologies, such as flying logistic robots, so you can then automate everything. This is the core of what this game wants you to do. By utilizing ‘science packs’ which you manufacture, technologies can be researched and unlocked for you to access. The ultimate goal is to research technology and launch a rocket into space
