Rusty Shackleford Posted February 24, 2015 Share Posted February 24, 2015 A game about the wonders of automation. Everyone knows about Minecraft, Terarria, Starbound, etc etc. And everyone knows how tedious it is to strip mine a continent to extract barely enough resources to craft yourself a single piece of mid-tier gear. The creators of Factorio saw that problem, and then thought about how much better those games would be if you could delegate mining to mindless, soulless robots so you could focus on the crafting. And then they thought about how much better it would be if you could automate the crafting process. And then if you automated the process of building machines to automate the crafting process. And so on and so forth. And then they threw in automated sentry guns, face-biting man-sized insects and high explosives, and mixed it all up in an overarching sci-fi setting. It's fucking amazing.
