Factorio is going to be somebody's dream game

I had originally intended to share this trailer for Factorio two weeks ago but the video slipped through the cracks. It was brilliant then and it's still brilliant now, so here we are. Give it a look.

Factorio isn't just about building a well-oiled machine (made up of hundreds of individual well-oiled machines), what with it taking place on an alien planet. Your factory, in all its glory, will attract the attention of local wildlife who'd rather you just go back home, thanks. Add "fending off creatures" to a to-do list that includes mining, researching, building, and automating. There's no end.

The game has already gone through a successful Indiegogo campaign and is available now as a paid alpha with a price increase planned for June. There's a demo to get you started.

[Thanks, SirDregan]
