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.”

Friday Facts #192 - One million

Hello,
we try to fix bugs as fast as we can, the more we fix, the more get reported, it will takes weeks to get to stable version ... blah blah blah

One million copies sold
YEEEEEEEEEYYYYYY!!!! :)
So it actually happened.
We are in the club of games that have sold out 1 million copies.
I can't really believe it.
It is almost the amount of people living in Prague.
Which is a lot.
It is hard to imagine all the people.
I want to see the people.
Well ... at least some of them.

The celebration party
We decided to make a celebration party. Most of the Factorio team will come, and we plan to invite our friends and other Czech developers. We want to make it possible for the players of Factorio to come as well if they want. We are not really sure how many people could actually come to such event in Prague. Actually there is a guessing contest in the office, where I'm the most pessimistic guy guessing that less than 50 people will come. The party will take place on Saturday the 17th of June, here at a venue here in Prague.

Each ticket costs 10 Euro, which is a symbolical price to make sure that people who get the tickets will actually attend, and to prevent a single person from getting all of the tickets. There are only 100 fan tickets available, so if you want to attend please make sure you get your ticket before they are all gone.

There will be a chance to chat with most of the team, including developers, artists and myself. Free food, beer and soft drinks will be on offer to all our guests, along with some music. We are also planning a Factorio 'Pub quiz', with some prizes for the winning teams. Of course this will be a great opportunity for everyone to chat with other fans of the game from around the world.

The interview and AMA
This is the first time you can actually see me talking about Factorio. I talk about the way Factorio started and struggled over the years. It ended up to be more of a monologue interrupted by occasional question, but lets call it an interview.

https://youtu.be/zdttvM3dwPk

As a follow-up to this interview, I will take part in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit, while the most basic and broad questions are already answered by the interview. The AMA will be held on the Factorio reddit next Tuesday (30. May) after 2pm CEST.

As usual, let us know what you think at the forums.

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.
