Re: How did you discover Factorio?

I dont know exactly anymore. According to steam it was 2016. I remember going to the steam store page after I got knowledge about it. There I saw that it was reviewed "overwhelmingly positive", I liked its trailer, I noticed that it is one of those rare games where users start to mark their positive reviews as negative just to mess with the readers (only ever noticed that with HL2, LFD2 and Factorio and imo it is an indicator for that the playerbase loves the game) and I read a review saying "Calling this early access is like saying the Mona Lisa isn't quite finished. 10/10" ( https://steamcommunity.com/app/427520/r ... lter=funny )

I had to laugh hard and bought it.

I bumped into a vid on youtube. It was a video review on indie games where Factorio was mentioned

Here

At the time I was like "nah... not for me". It would take over a year and a bunch of overwhelming positive reviews on Steam to convince me to buy it.

Btw, Mack never came back to the game for an update like he promised at the end of the video :)
