Notch (Minecraft creator) just mentioned Factorio on Twitter about a half hour ago. Get ready for Factorio to skyrocket.

Notch via Twitter:
"Factorio.com! I'm trying not to play it, but @JahKob is playing it right next to me. So tempted."

It is skyrocketing alright, this is just the moment when empty boosters are detached and the ones in the next stage are fired.

Except this is a weird sort of rocket that has more boosters in every stage.

While screening my twitter for Oculus Rift Preorder News I came by this tweet by notch:

"Back in sweden, and everything is white. Time to get productive, maybe, or play more factorio."

He still has many Twitter Followers, so I bet some are trying the games he mentions. Free Promotion! :mrgreen:

His recent twitter stream was *very* high on Factorio content. Like https://twitter.com/notch/status/867120874964615168

Not only Notch, recently also Dinnerbone - one of the main Minecraft Devs also encourage people to play Factorio:
