It looks like a great game!
Would definitely play, if I could afford :(
Doesn't seem to contain the automation part of factorio, however.
Been binge watching Aquasitions Incorporated "The C Team" recently.
A fun spin off of the original D&D game.
Also, the fanbase is quite active, which means lots of fanfiction!

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.
