It looks like a great game!
Would definitely play, if I could afford :(
Doesn't seem to contain the automation part of factorio, however.
Gonna start playing again with 0.16 build.
That's all.

Rocket valley (Android and maybe iPhone) is almost factorio simplified..

Copper ores to be mined, smelting into copper plates,
Coper plates and something else makes circuit boards..

I was about to mention Autonauts, but... Anyway, Endless Expansion is sort of a derpy free browser version of Factorio. I gave up on Rocket Valley when it crashed after a couple of minutes.

Colony Survival is a good game and quite a lot of automation, in terms of workers.
You can also get them to build/dig stuff for you, so again, just like Factorio.
It is basically a medieval version of Factorio.

Well, it's a bit more combat-y then Factorio, but Surpreme Commander (preferably Forged Alliance, but don't you dare mention the utter trash that was SC2) scratches that "build a big base" itch for me. It's less logistics and more combat oriented of course.

Than try out Rusted Warfare. It's like a cool small Total Annihilation or Supreme Commander Clone. It's performance is the best part and it's very stable at this point. The Developer is active and updated Workshop access lately. The Pathfinding is a bit of a hassle but thats my only contra point. It also has Lan functionality.

Rimworld and Stardew Valley, there are actually a lot of games that are similar to Factorio.

A lot, eh? There is one game reviewer on Youtube that stands head and shoulders above the crowd. At least in my opinion. When it came to Factorio, he completely cracked me up. I was like *ahem* Outpost 2?

Imagine Factorio as text-adventure...

PS: Don't click on that link if you are currently at work!
Wanted to +1 this as a simple time sink. Found it on reddit yesterday and it was fun. I think it was about 4-5 hours until I "beat" the game and have no upgrades remaining, and I'm just building for the sake of building.

The web game is much more recent than the Android app (missing tons of features), so use "desktop mode" or a desktop user-agent on your phone's browser. It would be better to play on computer though, as I found the scripts run more slowly (cpu throttling?) on my phone unless I hold a finger on the web page, and clicking fast isn't easily possible unless you start the game in a browser which can disable tap to zoom. If you start in Chrome, you can't change your mind and migrate it to another browser, so you'll be stuck with doing slow taps/clicks.

EDIT: Played longer, just to see the numbers grow, and something new happened, so maybe there's more, if you're patient enough.

I'd heard of paperclips; I didn't think it was all that er... particularly remarkable for a clicker/idle game. But I screwed up and have to restart in order to finish it (that took about 4 hours and it doesn't idle particularly well, especially in the third phase.) So, I duck it and found it has a freaking Wikipedia page only 206 bytes shorter than Factorio's! Come on, it ain't that good :lol:

Bleentoro, for Android (Apple store no idea) seems like yet another factorio Clone.

Edit: I've played it a little longer now, it's more like a puzzle game with miners and conveyer belts.

Voxel Tycoon seems quite interesting, seems to be a blend of Factorio and a transport tycoon type game, though that's a total guess. It's on steam though not available as yet. the alpha is apparently coming in 2018. Certainly one I'll be keeping a beady little eye on! (edit: I couldnt find any screen shots so I took those 2 below from steam, but now I've found these, I must be blind, game looks neat tbh.. http://voxeltycoon.xyz/gallery ).

Yeah, I tried their demo (or something) a few months ago, but you couldn't really do much of anything then. I'm interested in seeing how it works when it gets more features added. Also, is it just me or does the no power logo in this gif look like it was taken straight from Factorio?

You know that you play too much factorio when you think wube invented generic yellow warning triangles :p.

Voxel Tycoon looks promising gameplay-wise (tunnels! bridges! /jk), but i'm not sure i'll be able to enjoy the extremely minimalistic plastic-toy optics. Even minecraft had more than a single color per block.

yorg.io ...surprised to be the first to mention it. It's got this vector graphic motif and the game premise (unofficially, since I wrote the game's only known backstory) is that you're landing on an alien planet, with a one way ticket, to gather red crystals (of what I call yorgiote, potentially non-fictional 347Rg), as many as you can before you die. Unlike most tower defense games, this one includes an in-situ ammunition production system that puts it in this thread. Unlike Factorio, the red crystal is the only thing needed for constructing components, but managing both that and the defensive backend is a bit tricky on the harder levels and later in the game on easier levels when your base takes up the whole map.

Development has been stalled for a couple of months, and the server's a bit glitchy. It may be abandonware at this point, but I'm not sure.

I tried everything on the market today - there isn't a anything that comes close to Factorio.

Even Satisfactory is no match - only competitor.
Satisfactory is a eye catching gem, graphically wonderful but awful demanding processor wise and lacks the inner beauty of (top down view) "refined deep thought" mechanics
