About This Game

The original FortressCraft was one of the best-selling Indie games of all time. FortressCraft Evolved grows from this powerful base, giving access to incredibly detailed and epic Creative building, as well as allowing a unique form of Survival mode. Creative Mode allows large builds to be made much more quickly, and easily then duplicated and tweaked, and shared with other users effortlessly - all this alongside the world-class voxel building experience that gamers have come to expect.

FortressCraft Evolved includes a host of new features and functionality, which will provide players with the flexibility, variety and detail to realize their wildest worlds. The creative tools will enable users to design and implement magnificent creations, in a quick and intuitive fashion, whereas the Survival mode allows players to manage the ore extraction, processing and power distribution of an entire futuristic mining operation, whilst having to survive both the elements and hostile creatures.

Get in on the Steam Early Access program and be part of the Evolution at a special discounted price! As new phases and new platforms become available, including Mac and Linux versions, the cost of access will gradually increase up to its final retail price and official launch. By getting in early, your discounted price will allow you to have the best building tools for the lowest price as well as receive all the milestones and content patches for free.

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.

Fortresscraft Evolved. This game to me has become (evolved) into a game that compares to the likes of minecraft except in my opinion it has become better and is constantly improving. With the likes of HMKAGM, myself and a few others who are in contact with DJ the developer we are constantly advising on improvements for the game and subsequently the game is constantly evolving. If you like minecraft I am 90% sure you will like this game, give it a go. It is the 1st game I have ever given a review to as it is the 1st game I have found that warrants it. 5 star rating all the way Keep up the great work DJ.
