The best building games on PC

'Building' is a pretty broad theme. There are a lot of games where you build things, after all, and they can be very different. Helpfully, then, I've split this list of the 20 best building games on PC into four sections, each covering a sub-category of this big, messy genre.

The fantastic Factorio has launched out of early access

After seven years in early access, factory-building management sim Factorio is finally finished enough to launch properly. Update 1.0 arrived today and developers Wube Software have removed that "early access" label, though they're not done with patches yet. Factorio was already great in early access, plopping players on an alien planet to slowly build a vast network of mines, conveyor belts, processors, assemblers, defences, trains,…

Feature: Coal-hearted

Satisfactory review (early access)

There it is, the trans-planetary pipeline. One long tube of metal scarring a rural alien planet. It brings coal and water to my power stations, and electricity to my factories. It has taken a day of planning, construction and pumping. Now, the pipeline stands before me, a snaking behemoth of energy consumption. Suddenly, a thought comes. Why didn't I just build coal stations next to…

Factorio brings release date forwards to avoid clashing with Cyberpunk 2077

If anything was going to throw a wrench into Factorio's meticulously manufactured mechanisms, you'd never think it was a punk'd up cyborg in a leather jacket. Yet, even as they powered full-steam towards release, the folks at Wube Software have decided Cyberpunk 2077's launch-day noise risks drowning out their contraptions. This week, the developers announced plans to bring Factorio out of early access five weeks…

G2A pay Factorio devs over £32,000 after uncovering stolen key sales

Last year, second-hand games marketplace G2A made a bet: If any developers or publishers could prove that stolen keys were being sold on G2A, the storefront would pay back the money lost on chargebacks tenfold. Only one studio offered to take them up on the offer, Factorio developers Wube Software. Turns out, Wube were right to suspect stolen sales - and now G2A's gamble has…

Feature: I'll be whack

We erased Terminator: Resistance from history and reviewed what got made instead

The nicest thing I can say about Terminator: Resistance is that if a Terminator were sent back in time to wipe out its code, the timeline of gaming in general would almost certainly proceed unchanged. Confused by the apparent failure, Skynet would keep on sending Arnies back to delete it, unaware that the job was already done, and that its agents were just piling up…

Factorio 1.0 release date confirmed for next year, big updates on the horizon

Factorio is one of those games that are brilliant but have never seemed to make it out of early access. Well now there's an end in sight for the Factorio at least because the devolpers say, and I agree with this, "if we just pushed the button to release 1.0, it wouldn't be a catastrophe." After exactly four and a half years Factorio will officially…

Factorio’s 0.17 update brings a tutorial and map editor to the mechanical time-sink

Despite being in development for a fifth of my lifetime, Factorio has somehow only reached version 0.17. Crikey, software development terms, eh? Whenever I've developed a game, I just make 'em up. Still, I wager the folk behind the mechanical monstrosity that is Factorio have everything scheduled out nicely, laid out on complex spreadsheets which work themselves out without human input. But still, their assembly…

Game DNA: growing order from chaos

The summer of 1991 was all about ants. I was seven years old, and I spent the entire school holiday camped in the garden, gently catching winged queens and housing them in shitty coke bottle formicariums. There I would watch them lay eggs and create workers, who would dig tunnels, search about the place, and scurry in lines with grains of food in their jaws.…

Feature: First-person Factorio

Mega-building game Satisfactory is shaping up to be far, far more than satisfactory

Satisfactory, the Factorio-style automated building game from Coffee Stain, is going to be huge. It's going to be huge because there are going to be so many videos of huge things built within it, and we're all going to look at those and think "now I want to make something huge." The overriding question here was always whether or not Satisfactory could successfully transpose the…

Factorio-but-first-person building game Satisfactory launches this month

Coffee Stain Studios are probably tired of everyone saying that their Goat Simulator and Sanctum follow-up Satisfactory looks like a first-person Factorio, but I'd say that's a comparison to embrace. A very good thing given a new perspective, plus dune buggies and jetpacks? Yeah, g'wan.It's been a bit quiet on the Satisfactory front for a while now, other than news that the factory-builder would be…
