About This Game

FortressCraft Evolved’s Survival Mode is a unique-blend of Voxel Landscapes, Tower Defense, Crafting, Logistics, Exploration, Combat and Assembly lines. Players begin by crash-landing on a strange alien world, left with only a small handful of starting machines. Using hand-held scanners they must locate ore resources, place down Ore Extractors and Conveyors to automate the raw material back to the Smelter; take the fresh ingots through multi-machine assembly lines, followed by researching new technologies that help them explore thousands of meters below the planet's surface.

An advanced HoloBase allows players to keep an eye on their factory which they must defend against waves of alien attacks with multiple tiers of missile and energy turrets. To survive they must continue to develop new and unique power systems, from solar energy to Jet Turbines, culminating in crafting an Orbital Energy Transmitter thousands of cubic meters in size, to beam power off-planet, and start 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, and full multiplayer support! This does not even factor in all that you can do in the Creative Mode whose only limits are your time and imagination. With an array of Super Build Tools and a high-resolution Custom Detail Block Workshop players can build anything and on a massive scale unseen in other games.

  • Experience the largest worlds ever seen in any computer game - ever!
  • Create a futuristic mining operation consisting of thousands of huge machines.
  • Full Tower-Defense style combat in a voxel universe.
  • Use hi-tech machinery to locate and process resources from thousands of meters away.
  • Explore thousands of metres vertically, overcoming ever-more difficult challenges.
  • Official Texture Pack and Mod Pack support
  • State of the art lighting and shadowing, utilising high resolution maps for machinery and environment
  • Innovative“Build to Me” Feature to facilitate rapid, accurate building
  • Shareable Creative Schematics
  • Super Build Tools allowing instant creation of primitive shapes

I'd give this game multiple thumbs up if I could! Wish I had heard about this game sooner, I happened across it purely by accident while browsing around steam.

I've played a lot of games and never come across something like this. I'd best describe it as an automation/crafting/logistics simulator, mixed in with a bit of Spider-man of all things!

The "blocky" look initially turned me off as I thought it looked too similar to Minecraft (which I have not played, mainly due to the low rent blockyness). Yes, the world is made up of blocks, but the similarity ends there - the textures are quite detailed, and while everything you craft/place in the world is using the same large block grid, the machines and other items are quite detailed and have excellent animations.

The game's premise is you have crash landed on an inhospitable world and must mine resources, research new technologies, and gain enough power to eventually escape. The open-endedness of this allows you to build up your base and production systems any way you see fit. It doesn't take long at all before you have a fairly complex system bringing in several types of materials from deep underground.

The whole experience can at first seem VERY grindy, but this is where the beauty really lies - in automating everything. Everything can be as automated as much as little as you like, and if you have the right materials over vast distances!

There is just so much to do at every stage it can seem overwhelimg - in a good way! The best games give you consistent challenges to overcome, with multiple ways to approach the problem, and this one has it in spades. The development cycle is very active and new things are being added all the time. If something is too easy or exploitable, its patched! As soon as you think you have a handle on things and start expanding your operations, digging deeper, or upgrading, new mechanics will come in to play to keep you on your toes.

You WILL die quite a bit, especially at the beginning - from falls or exposure to the extreme temperatures. As you buld up you will start to have waves of creatures attack your base, but at this time there is no real "death penalty' or loss when your central base hub is destroyed. The inconvenience of either of these is more than enough of a deterrent however, and the attacks can apparently set back your progress on the end game run. It can seem a bit lonely, as the planet is generally devoid of any wildlife on the surface or anything that attacks you directly without being provoked. But there is multiplayer which I have not tried, but it seems like it could be a blast building up with friends.

If any of this or the screenshots/videos sound remotely interesting, grab this game - you won't regret it!

Game should not have left early access. Way too many issues still remain, especially in multiplayer. The fact that DLC was added on top of it, instead of fixing issues, is a bit insulting.

I'd strongly suggest not buying until the multplayer is worked on and performance is improved.

You'll see a lot of people complaining about how this "used to be fun", and upset because reasons. To sum up:

This is a game about automation; they are upset that they have to automate. This game has always been about trying to automate things and, yes, forcing automation, because it makes the most sense. How many people here can build a plastic gizmo by hand? How many people here, if given that task, would go buy a 3D printer to do it?

If you are a new player and don't have the expectation that you can carry around 70K worth of ore in your magic pouch, then you'll find this game fun. If you are a new player and expect to have to automate things (and protect them!) then you'll have fun.

A game only if you have plenty of time to spare but if you got the time its fun as hell. Right now i am only 19 hours in but i can tell i will be in the same world for a very (100 hours plus) long time to come. Only issues I have with it are that you cant just go to the main menue from in game or adjust your graphic settings from in game. To do both of these you must quit the game and relaunch it. All in all a nice game that I have already recomended to a few people. If your looking for a rating out of ten mine would be 8.5/10

300+ hrs in the game since I bought it and still loving it.
The way the game is still being developed is one where you can only have respect for. Updates come (almost) daily, the quality is outstanding. And these are not only bug fixes, even new content is beeing added for the base game / DLC('s). The most respect for the developer goes to his stream while developing. This is surely something to checkout https://gaming.youtube.com/game/UCFSLWwsXaZVThhgz6g0cJwA

Without a doubt a game I'll be playing for a long time and once I ever play it till the end, I'll surely start over again.

This is really a big bang for your buck!

It's good. If you enjoy Factorio, Minecraft tech mods, you'll probably enjoy this. Don't buy it if you want a quick game, where stuff is just given to you. There aren't any shortcuts and you'll be building a lot, especially early, to really get things automated. I got it during the last sale, game + DLC for $17 and it is definitely worth every penny.

I've been addicted to it for a couple weeks since the steam summer sale. I got my boss addicted to it. Now I can "work from home" all I want.

The general gist of this game is what happens when Minecraft and Factorio have a baby. Unfortunately, it didn't work out quite like that. For a logistics based survival game, I would much rather play Factorio, and for a block-based world, I would much rather play Minecraft. Don't get me wrong, this game isn't a bad game. It's just there are other games that do the job better, in my opinion.

Graphics and block models look nice. The area lighting is a bit dark. There are not many settings available from ingame, changing graphics level requires a restart. Switching worlds also requires a restart. Overall an enjoyable game

Very deep crafting and logistic system. Overall well thought out progression and balance system, but there are lulls at times.

UI/polish needs work and interaction with hoppers is unintuitive.

If the idea of Minecraft & Factorio having a baby sounds appealing to you then this is a lot of frequently updated content to enjoy.

Well first off i didn't think I would of liked the game. Then I tried it and its actually really good alot of automation. Times where the bugs will keep you on your toes. So far I have enjoyed every part of this game great recommendation to anyone that likes similar games like Factorio. Also a good thing is the Dev is always active always streaming and fixing,polishing, and adding things to his game. Yes he is a D*** but you know what, he cares about his game and what people think on it and listens to what we have to say when it comes to the game.
