Hi Guys!
yesterday, browsing the steam I found this game https://store.steampowered.com/app/1069 ... in_Mining/ :o :o :o
a shameless copy of Factorio. I say it's a copy because it's not from the same developer. [thetis games]
where's the copyright ???? haha LOL

(Admin.... I don't want controversy, I just showed my find on steam)

It is clearly inspired by Factorio, but just from seeing the list of basic resources, it's just a clone.

That said, given there are already games with similar mechanics, such as "FortressCraft Evolved", "Factory Idle", "Mindustry", and the devs explicitly approved of "Satisfactory" I doubt they would care.

Past that, Factorio started as an attempt to create a standalone expansion of several minecraft tech mods, like Buildcraft and Industrialcraft, but focusing in a different direction. So it isn't even pretending to be fully original (not that such a thing exists in the first place)

Yes, that definitely looks like Production Line. And it is also in the same genre as Factorio.

[Koub] Merging this to the "Games like Factorio" thread, because ... it's a game like Factorio after all.
