“The twenty-tensies truly were a golden age for games about optimising production lines,” future generations will say underneath their infrared-heated geodesic domes.
“The approach was paved by games like Infinifactory and Factorio, smoothing the best way for a flood of followers,” one elder recollects. “Why, one month noticed the launch of not solely Satisfactory and Production Line however Factory Town too.”
“What’s Factory Town?” asks one of many huddled younglings, their eyes quivering with reverence.
“Ah, yes, I’m afraid the tomes about that one were amongst those devoured for sustenance during The Hard Times,” sighs the elder. They look upwards in memory then shortly again down, making an attempt to unsee the cracks within the dome rising as waves pound overhead.

It’s a bit ‘Settlers-or-Civ-or-some-other-strategy-game-set-in-history-but-also-maybe-magic-idk-meets-Factorio’, beginning us out with wee employees we have to construct a village for. Over time and tech bushes, our cute rural farms and quarries will develop into mechanised metropolises, stamping clear strains of railways and conveyor belts throughout the once-chaotic countryside. And that’s a superb factor, okay? The march of progress, child!
I’ve not had a go myself however have heard it’s a fairly nice line ’em up to date.
The early entry plan of developer Erik Asmussen is so as to add a number of options and polish Factory Town over the following six months or so earlier than hitting model 1.zero and launching. Unless he finally ends up rising the game’s scope in response to suggestions, through which case who is aware of.
Factory Town is out on Steam for £13.94/€15.11/$17.99, which incorporates the 10% launch low cost out there for the following few days. Before this, Asmussen had offered a restricted run of beta keys through Itch.io and stated he does intend to renew promoting it there, although he hasn’t but.
Twist ending: these future generations are literally robots.
Double-twist ending: this submit is about in the same universe as this video.
