What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I am releasing Kubifaktorium to Early Access to involve players and their suggestions into the game’s development. The game has been in closed alpha since August 2018 and the players’ feedback has greatly helped improve the game already. If you like playing a game in steady, active development with weekly content patches and don’t mind a few rough edges, you will have a good time with Kubifaktorium. :)”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game has been in development since late 2017 and is about 60% complete. The core game-play and major mechanics (job and resource system, automation, transport and logistics system, terrain generation etc.) are already implemented. The missing parts are largely content and balancing which are manageable. I plan for the game to remain in Early Access for no more than 2 years. (My previous game BossConstructor was in Early Access for 2 years as well.)”

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

“Features that are planned:
  • The full version will have 4 biomes and technology tiers (currently 2 are finished).
  • Improvements and balance work on the late game with its focus on automation.
  • Steam Workshop support. (Modding is already supported, however!)

Features I am considering:
  • Fluid system.
  • Power system.
  • A (light) story.
  • (Work & construction) drones.
  • Indirect player interactions.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Kubifaktorium has been in closed alpha since its Kickstarter campaign ended in August 2018. The game has improved a lot since then and is now largely bug-free. The early- to mid-game, i.e. tiers 1-2 are quite playable and fairly balanced. The late-game content (tiers 3-4) is for the most part missing or incomplete. For more information, please take a look at the progress report videos in the news section.”

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

“The game’s price will remain constant during the Early Access phase and no price change is planned for release.”

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

“First of all, you can help just by playing and reporting things that are not working as intended. There is an in-game bug reporting tool that allows you to submit bug reports easily. Most major bugs are replaced by new ones in the following weekly patch. ;)

If you want to follow the game’s development, there are (bi-)monthly progress report videos in which I present what I’ve been working on and what you can expect to see in the near future.

Finally, if you want to discuss the game or submit suggestions or feature requests, please join us on Discord. :)”

About This Game

"A very impressive game already, and it still has scope to improve through its early access period." - Rock Paper Shotgun

What is Kubifaktorium?

Build, manage and grow a thriving settlement in Kubifaktorium, a voxel-based colony management and automation game. The game features multiple biomes to explore, plenty of resources to exploit, complex transport systems and automations to build and interesting production chains to master.

Colony Building and Management

The heart of your colony consists of loyal colonists who will gather resources, farm crops and craft tools and weapons. Every colonist is unique, with their own set of skills which evolve based on the jobs they perform. Managing your colonists’ needs and abilities is vital to ensuring your colony's efficiency.

Different Biomes

In the course of the campaign you will explore and colonize multiple islands and encounter different biomes. Each biome features new enemies and challenges but also new resources to discover and process.

Logistics and Transportation

As your colony grows and your production hums along, transporting the resources you need becomes more and more challenging. Kubifaktorium features a number of transportation systems like trains, conveyor belts, zeppelins and more. Automated depots and inserters are there to help you store, sort and keep track of all your goods.

Automation

While your colonists are highly motivated, their work power is limited. Fortunately, your colonists know how to craft advanced machinery like automated farms, smelters, crushers etc., which you can use to automate more and more of your production.

Mod Support

Kubifaktorium is built to be mod friendly and allows players to create anything from localizations, new goods and industries to total conversions with new terrains and scenery. The game will support publishing and sharing mods via the Steam Workshop!

User Interface and Accessibility

The game is designed to be easy to learn and hard to master. Multiple tutorials and extensive tooltips will teach you the game’s mechanics. The game’s intelligent recommendation system will help you along by suggesting things to build and produce based on the current situation.

Development

The game was inspired by games like Factorio, Gnomoria, The Settlers, Stonehearth and Rimworld. Kubifaktorium has been successfully Kickstarted in August 2018 and has received weekly bug fixes and content patches since. I also make (bi-)monthly progress report videos in which I present the development progress. If you like, join us on Discord and share your thoughts and suggestions. :)
