What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want players to play the game while we're working on it so they can tell us what they think.

We want to know everything - what they like and don't like, and also what they think we should add to make the game better.

We did "Early Access" before and it was really cool, so here we go again. We're excited to meet amazing people (like you are) and have fun making games together!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Year+”

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

“There's a big picture with a list of the game's features on this page, it tells what we're working on right now, what we've already finished, and what we're planning to do next. This is how you can see what we're up to!”

About This Game

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1724140/Craftomation_101_Programming__Craft/



Learning Factory is a relaxing automation game, which lets you concentrate on the most important task in the Universe: making cats happy again.

You're a humble genius scientist who gets invited to become the chief engineer at an abandoned Factory on Mars, designed to produce and sell exquisite goods for cats. It was conceived to learn everything about cats and make them happy, but it is desolated now, and cats are leaving Factory Stores unhappy and empty-pawed.





Now you have a chance to continue the research and development of goods that feline hearts long for! Simply follow these steps on your way to a scientific breakthrough:

  • Renovate an abandoned factory on Mars
  • Design and automate production chains
  • Produce and sell exquisite goods to cats
  • Collect and analyze data with Machine Learning
  • Scale and make the factory more efficient
  • Make cats happy!
  • Rebuild the ancient Monument
  • Establish Catopia in the feline society!



Sales at the Factory Stores generate tons of data which is later analyzed by real-life machine learning in order to unlock the in-depth nature of the feline mind.

But hey: no pressure! In this fail-safe environment, the key to success is to keep trying and stay curious. Experiment, optimize, automate - and keep creating a giant cat-catering factory on Mars. Eventually you will find the key to a better future for humans and cats (and also maybe dogs, dogs are kinda ok, too)!

The game is backed up with real Machine Learning, links to handpicked educational videos, and an in-game wiki to be used as learning material.
