Why is Factorio Such a Great Game?
Factorio is the latest strategy and simulation game by the Czech development house Wube
Software. The game has been released for Microsoft Windows, macOS, Linux, and Facebook’s
iOS in beta form, following a five-year early access release last year. There are many online
reviews of different versions and Wube Software has released a Factorio Video Walkthrough to
provide fans with a sneak peek at what the game can be used for. I will examine some of the
fundamental design concepts in this Factorio Review and discuss the factors I feel contribute to
the game’s replayability and enjoyment.
The basis for the story of Factorio revolves around the struggling factory worker, Lenna, who
starts off in her factory job without any background or knowledge of what she is doing. While
cleaning out her garage, she unearths some ancient Chinese inventions that are part of the
factory machinery that are slowing down production and causing overproduction and worker
injury. This causes her boss to send her to the old factory floor to clean out the damaged
machinery and rewire them into a better state. As a factory employee you are tasked with
helping her and learning about the various machines as they are repaired. This also means
assisting her in developing the various products that will be laid off and taking them to the factory
assembly line so that they can be manufactured according to company policy.
When the factory is back on its feet and running again production is going great but profits are
still low. This problem is further compounded when one of the machines in the factory breaks
down and must be repaired. This causes further problems for the factory as the backlog of nonrefundable materials grows larger. At this point it becomes necessary to implement a process
called production line re-farming which allows the factories to use up the raw materials they have
accumulated and produce more products than they could before. Factorio uses these materials
to make a very nutritious snack for the lower levels of workers who will be given food items such
as crackers, cookies, and beef jerky to tide them over during production.
Because Factorio has a very basic design, there are many routes you can take to receive an
early access code. Some popular options include getting a free demo version of Factorio through
Steam or Greenlight. Although Greenlight is still in testing it is easy to see how useful having
Early Access will be once it is released. You can use the free trial version to learn about the
various options and techniques you can use while playing the game. This will also give you the
chance to find any bugs in the game that you may have missed while playing the Early Access
Researching is one of the most important aspects of manufacturing Factorio because you need
to know how to maximize your efforts at producing your product. Early access will allow you to
do this without spending too much time worrying about how to sustain the production line and
how to maintain the productivity of your workers. Another thing you can research while playing
Factorio is how to use the new building technologies and explore the different ways to produce
your product using these new tools. You can research a lot of different things while playing this
game and gain helpful information about how to make your factories efficient and productive.
Although the early access code will only allow you to test out the basics of Factorio and the
game itself, it is still worth giving the game a go just to see if it suits your interests. Some people
enjoy the concept of making money by manufacturing and selling goods while battling monstersand other creatures along the way. If you are someone who enjoys this idea then Factorio might
be perfect for you.
There are also some people who are interested in the strategic aspect of this game, thinking
that they could make a fortune if they were able to successfully maintain factories, mine
resources, and build more buildings. Factorio does have a bit of that theme involved in its
design, although there are a few different aspects that will make you want to play again. First,
you will need to determine what resources you are going to be using the most. The main
resources you will need to focus on are wood and metal, because these two resources are used
to make the main items you will be manufacturing. As you progress through the game, you will
find that you need to focus on more rare resources as well, but you can only gain access to
these through researching new technologies and discovering hidden areas of Factorio.
One fun aspect of Factorio is the fast pace at which you are able to build your factories and
other structures. Because Factorio is made up of just a few basic parts, you are able to get the
job done very quickly and efficiently. Although there are a few power ups and other obstacles
that you will come across along the way, you will find that the speed at which you are able to
complete various tasks will keep you satisfied. In fact, one of the best parts of playing Factorio is
being able to level up fairly quickly and gain more experience. There is no better feeling than
finishing a tough level because you have advanced a bit and are now a stronger unit than you
