What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been working on Factorio for over 4 years. The game is very stable and is highly optimised for prolonged gameplay and creating huge factories. We have sold over 110,000 copies on our website, and we feel now is the right time to release to a wider audience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plans for release come as part of an ongoing process, and we are constantly adding new features and content. When we feel the game is complete we will release the full version, and our current estimate is that this will take 8-12 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In the full version we hope to have a polished GUI, a multiplayer matching server, integration of mods for players and servers, and a number of other finishing touches and additions to the core gameplay.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has a very strong content base, rich with interesting mechanics and features. Many players report they are still having fun on their maps even after hundreds of hours of gameplay, alongside multiplayer support, and a dedicated modding community.”

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

“The price may be increased upon release from early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community is a vital part of our development process. We announce any planned features far in advance so we have time to read peoples' opinions and comments, and for us to discuss the different points of view players may have. Community suggested ideas are commonly brought up in team discussions, and we value highly the input each individual player can have.”

About This 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-up Modding 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.

Discount Disclaimer: We don't have any plans to take part in a sale or to reduce the price for the foreseeable future.

This game is basically perfect, 100% recommend to anyone that would enjoy making automated systems. You will not regret it. Also, just get it because you will 100% fall in love with it.

P.S. This game is also stupidly difficult at times, but that is where the ultimate feeling of satisfation will come from when you succeed

I would recommend this to hardcore survival/rts players who are familiar with grinding away hours of thier life in solo.

Multiplayer needs a lobby... then a thumbs up will be received.

This better be listed along such titles as Arma or Mafia in "games originating from Czech", because its a really good game, and it should be known where it is from.

It's kinda like.... Rollercoaster Tycoon meets Starcraft and some analytical math, and then they stay up all night together smoking crack cocaine. In a good way.

This game is early access, but not really. It's basically finished as far as I can tell. You start with a drill and a box. You have to feed your drill coal to keep it going. You craft some more drills and boxes. Then after a decent amount of iron and copper has been melted you can make automatic miners, belts and electricity, and this game becomes something truly mindblowing.

Your goal is to create the universes most effective automated factory, and by god you will try. Once you automate one thing, you can then automate another, and another, and eventually you will have a sprawling, massive factory that you didn't plan very well. It will bother you, so you'll make a new section of your factory, much more organized and effective. And then you'll make it bigger, and bigger and bigger, because by this point you realize that you need true mass production of everything if you want to get all the science packs produced, and your rocket built.

Then you'll look outside, or at your clock, and realize you haven't left your computer to eat, drink or sleep for five days. I'm not kidding, this game is worse than crack.

Steam lied. It said 20 bucks. It traded my soul instead.

I am a programmer and slightly autistic; this game is my drug.

Day 42
Last night I had a dream. I flew high above the Earth and I gazed down at Creation. 'Twas not the Creation of a superior being, free and clean, clear and majestic, beautiful, bright, a world of magic and wonderment. No, the creation I looked upon was chaotic, frightening, full of over-complication and madness, dark, made by the hand of a lowly creature who's mind was twisted with the thoughts of the Unspeakable Creatures from the Other Places. Motivated by the inability to stop, he toiled away, adding to the monster he was creating, with no thoughts of orginization or coherence; it just had to fit. The veins of this creature covered the land, ever moving, little hands grabbing all as if for nourishment, but never satisfied. I watched the lungs of the beast breathe energy into it's nerves, fueling it's desire to consume the world. I could hear the scraping of it's jaws as it chewed at the Earth, swallowing it's riches only to spit them back up moments later.
As I watched from the ethereal, the Mad One ran about this leviathan as if he were a crazed Frankentein, bringing Life and movement to things that should be kept still. All of a sudden, he stopped. His eyes turned up to observe me, and I knew at once the horrible truth: this small, tireless worker for the Dark Ones, who's life was driven only by pain and insanity, this creature was me.

...

I awoke in a panic, sweat pooling around me. I knew I could never rest, never sleep; They won't let me. I can only build, only continue Their work. The designs don't make sense, but it doesn't matter; it works, and I must continue. We are close to our Goal, They say, though I know not what it is.
I log on once more. Peace will come only when I'm done...

I used a poisonous gas to kill off an area of forest, so I could build a bunch of pumpjacks in its place, to get the crude oil I needed to produce the ammo for my tank.

10/10 would contribute to global warming again.
