Notch Mentioned Factorio on Twitter

Post by metzyn » Tue May 20, 2014 10:34 am

Notch (Minecraft creator) just mentioned Factorio on Twitter about a half hour ago. Get ready for Factorio to skyrocket.

Notch via Twitter:
"Factorio.com! I'm trying not to play it, but @JahKob is playing it right next to me. So tempted."

It is skyrocketing alright, this is just the moment when empty boosters are detached and the ones in the next stage are fired.

Except this is a weird sort of rocket that has more boosters in every stage.

Sounds like one of my Kerbal designs!

Notch has 1.6M followers. That is some nice exposure!

That exact tweet led me here, and I bought the game instantly (because it looks bloody awesome). So yeah, it's definitely working :P

While screening my twitter for Oculus Rift Preorder News I came by this tweet by notch:

"Back in sweden, and everything is white. Time to get productive, maybe, or play more factorio."
https://twitter.com/notch/status/684653851551633408

He still has many Twitter Followers, so I bet some are trying the games he mentions. Free Promotion! :mrgreen:

His recent twitter stream was *very* high on Factorio content. Like https://twitter.com/notch/status/867120874964615168
