Factorio in some top 100 on Steam

Post by Koub » Mon Jan 01, 2018 10:21 pm

I had the nice surprise to see Factorio was in both the 100 most sold games in 2017 (Bronze category), and the 100 most played (more than 15k simultaneously) just on Steam (knowing there are probably quite a lot playing without being on Steam).

This is quite an achievement, especially it is still technically in early access (I say technically, because the game has been totally playable since at least when I bought it 2014).
Even though I'm not part of the dev team, I'm quite thrilled because I have never been so right when I have believed in Factorio.

Congratz to the devs, and congratz to the community, which has, by its contributions, helped the devs making the great game Factorio is today, and the even better game it will be tomorrow.

Yeah - I saw that earlier and thought it was really cool. What surprised me was that it wasn't in the list for early access games.

Factorio got to Steam early access in 2016, not 2017 :)

That was just for games released this year? I thought it was for all of the early access games. That explains it, then.

It's actually for games that came out of Early Access in 2017

I'm in the UK, so in my case, it is different.
Someone has probably started bragging about it in their signature :D
