I often think of this because I discovered factorio only be over hearing its name by some kids, it makes me think that I almost missed out on something great.

Interestingly enough from it's TV Tropes page: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/V ... e/Factorio
It was listen as an example in a few articles about video game tropes which I was reading, and it sounded interesting so I read through it's page... liked the concept so much that I went and tried the demo (this was before steam release) and then I liked the demo so much that I bought the game!

A friend of mine was playing factorio. He backed the indiegogo campaign.
I saw him playing it and it looked interesting. He gave me the game (I think it was an early version of 0.12 or maybe even 0.11).
I liked it and bought it just before factorio got released on steam.

I discovered Factorio through the Better than Wolves forum, a forum for a (kind of almost industrialisation) minecraft mod.
This was back in 0.9
