Transport Tycoon


Foundry is a first-person simulation game, in which we must create a factory and fully automate it. The game was developed by Channel 3 Entertainment, featuring a procedurally generated, voxel-based open world and multiplayer.


Foundry has us playing as a robot, traversing an alien planet, equipped only with a scanner and a drill. The former is used to find mineral deposits, while the latter is used to extract them. Our ultimate goal is to create a self-sufficient sci-fi-like facility.

Initially, we must gather resources ourselves, using them to create materials and construct buildings. Over time, we can start researching new technologies and automating our factory. As the facility develops, we must also keep logistics in mind, planning out the layout of production lines and pipelines. For our machines to operate at full capacity, they require a steady supply of energy.

Since the world is procedurally generated, each playthrough of Foundry is completely different. We'll visit mountains, jungles, caves and many other areas. Players can also remove each singular block in the game, replacing or relocating it, letting them impact the planet's landscape.

Game modes

Foundry supports singleplayer and co-op. While multiplayer was designed for 2-4 players, this is not a strict limit.

Technical aspects

Since its debut in Steam Early Access, Foundry has featured mod support. Having creative users in mind, the developers intend to gradually expand the mod tools.
