*maynotbebugfree”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Creative mode is near-finished, with almost all features complete.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, we will increase the price of the game slowly untill we go to full price at release.”

About This Game

FortressCraft is a unique-blend of Voxel Landscapes, Tower Defence, Crafting, Logistics, Exploration, Combat and Assembly lines. Crash-landed on a strange alien world, you're left with only a tiny handful of starting machines. Use your hand-held scanner to locate ore resources, place down Ore Extractors and Conveyors to automate the raw materiel back to your Smelter; take the fresh ingots through your multi-machine assembly line, before Researching new technologies to help you explore thousands of metres below the planet's surface. Continue to keep an eye on your factory with the advanced HoloBase, defend against waves of alien attacks with multiple tiers of missile and energy turrets; develop new and unique power systems, from solar energy to Jet Turbines, culminating in crafting an Orbital Energy Transmitter thousands of cubic metres in size, beaming power off-planet, and starting the next phase of the game.

And all this with an enormous draw-distance, scalable gameplay engine that is equally at home on high-end or low-end computers, with full multiplayer-support!

Early Access Review
Oh boy this game was a bit of a turd when i got my hands on it last week i believe. It was rough, a lot of things didn't function properly and I was confused as hell. Went to the forums and almost 1:1 the dev was posting back and talking, on all the forums I checked. Big ups for that.
What about the game? Well its minecraft style construction and world building but that's where the comparison ends. You extract ores to creat ingots to create new machines to support your lazy butt because the name of this game is automation. There's been more than once where I just sat back and let my machines work to produce some ingots i needed or research modules. This game has some serious depth to it and with all my hours I have in the game, they're all in ONE SAVE. Last game I played that let me do that was Dark Souls. So Yeah this game deserves your attention. It doesn't look the best but the gameplay is fulfilling and there's tons to work towards. SOme crack head said one of the end game items was a 20 hour work, ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ 50 hours in and i ain't got it. I just finished the last of the tech tree so now I get to build the fancy ♥♥♥♥ i researched. So pick this up because its worth your money and if you're having issues ask the dev because i've had full conversations with the guy. He's really cool and helpful. He takes your complaints and suggestions into considerations.
They fixed more bugs than i can count when I started this game. I love it.

Don't be fooled by the current mixed reviews, with the latest update this game is finally actually playable with tons of finished features to keep you going. If you enjoy Minecraft with the buildcraft or industrialcraft mods you WILL enjoy this game.

Its an awesome game, gives you a more industrial view of voxel games as opposed to the typical "build stupid pick axe, mine till you upgrade stupid pick axe" games. The devs are very responsive to the community and often respond within a day or less.

Early Access Review
This game gets worse reviews than it deserves. Keep in mind this is an early access game guys, it's not complete don't expect it to be.

The gameplay is pretty decent, it's all about automation and machines. A skilled player could make some truly complex machinery which would be super fun. It's minecrafty but unique, a great play for minecraft fans who are tired of playing the same game all the time.
I personally find the identifying blocks and researching things to be very entertaining and satisfying.
