game release date for PC:
Factorio for PC is an indie strategy game, where the player is tasked with building and maintaining factories. The production has been developed by two programmers from the Czech Republic, who have always been fans of such titles as Transport Tycoon, Civilization or SimCity, and have used these renowned games as inspiration for making Factorio. The project has been funded on Indiegogo in 2013 and this event was shortly followed by an alpha version of the game.
It is up to the player to create factories on a hostile alien planet. We have to keep supplying them with the correct resources, which are required to develop our facilities further. It is also possible to uncover new technologies in research centres; we are also tasked with keeping our lands safe from the attacks of the natives.
Factorio features both a single player campaign and a sandbox mode, the developers have prepared three difficulty levels and we also have an extremely varied choice of factory equipment at our disposal. The title has full mod support and has a map editor already built into the game.
Factorio for PC has been created with a simple 2D graphic style, the production is minimalistic, which also makes it less distracting; however, it cannot compete with other titles of this genre.
