Oooh addicting little diversion there. I got up to painting and decided I needed to actually do something today :D

EDIT: Oops I went back to it.

If the Steam version has blueprints some time before where I currenltly am in the free demo, I'm'a spend the $4 on it. If not, I can't see enjoying manually placing enough stuff to do 72k deliveries.

mobile game like factorio

Post by julitj »

I saw a game on android, which looks like a bright stroke with factorio. Yes, added a lot of resources, discs, but the mechanics... manipulators, conveyors...

"Sandship: Crafting Factory" from Rockbite Games

Is it collaboration or copying? :?

Heavy inspiration is heavy. I guess that's the price to pay when one creates a game so good and innovative that it gives birth to a new genre bearing the game's name.
Doom-like, Diablo-like, ... Now, people create "Factorio-like" games.

Indeed, it brings popularity that someone begins to imitate this. But it’s sad that the idea is stolen by pieces and profit from it.

While some are indeed just copying mechanics and designs, it is interesting to look at what doesn't get copied in general.
The "factory builder" genre seems to rarely or never copy two-lane belt mechanics, extreme modability, the 2D-only-engine approach, the love for detail (like modability, a rare beast in any genre), and the endless procedurally generated map.
Most also are pure factory builders not featuring any combat.

I don't think, that (apart from Factorio itself) there actually is a play-worthy Factorio-like yet. There are some play-worthy factory builders though...

Btw my top game is League of Legends, one of the most popular games out there. If it happens too difficult to pass or you lack time to upgrade the char visit https://skycoach.gg/lol-boost.
If the idea is stolen by lots of people it is the best compliment for the idea imo. LoL and WoW are the best games ever in my opinion!

Just spotted "Dyson Sphere Program" which was apparently revealed at Tokyo Games Show. Basically "3D factorio in space". Looks intriguing. Early access is announced for 2021, so it's gonna be quite a while until 1.0 i guess.
