Satisfactory creates a race of atomic super-trains

Brill as environment-despoiling industrialist sim Satisfactory is, it felt like it was missing something. With today's addition of big automated freight trains to the early access sandbox, I realise what Coffee Stain hadn't yet cribbed from Factorio. Today's update also adds some lush new biomes to explore, and a way to completely screw it all up. Nuclear power plants produce tons of power (great for…

Satisfactory upgrades with guns, bombs, cars and vertical conveyor belts

Today, Coffee Stain rolled out their first major early access update for Satisfactory, their 3D Factorio-like space-industrial sandbox. While shockingly good even in its first release, it still felt like the game had some gaps to fill. Today's update adds new vertical conveyor belts, an exploration vehicle with springy suspension, demolition charges and firearms which go a long way to filling out those blanks.  Below,…

Satisfactory takes down the scaffolding for early access launch

The Factorio-esque delights of building machines to build machines until a pretty alien planet is converted into a vast machine building one really big machine today enters a first-person perspective with the early access of launch of Satisfactory. Made by Coffee Stain Studios, the mob behind Goat Simulator and--more relevantly--Sanctum, it is unashamedly Factorio in 3D but that intimate perspective does make a difference when…

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…

THQ Nordic held a Q&A with 8chan, a website de-listed from Google for hosting suspected child porn

"We're doing an 8chan AMA and we have no idea why," announced THQ Nordic on their Twitter account earlier this evening. If you're not aware, 8chan is an imageboard website which has been de-listed from Google search results for hosting "suspected child abuse content," and which is associated with Swatting and Gamergate. THQ Nordic's marketing director has since apologised and claimed ignorance, but both are…

Epic’s store launches with exclusives from Supergiant & Coffee Stain

In case you hadn't gleaned this detail from today's many posts mentioning games launching on Epic's Store: Epic's new digital games store has now opened for business. While their "hand-curated set of games" only includes four you can actually buy right now, one of them is the surprise new game from the makers of Bastion and that's not a bad coup. Epic Games have managed…

THQ Nordic buy the studios behind Wreckfest and Goat Simulator

THQ Nordic have gobbled up yet more studios, today announcing they've bought Bugbear Entertainment and Coffee Stain Studios. Bugbear are the smash-happy Finnish studio behind racing games including Wreckfest and the first three FlatOuts, while Coffee Stain made FPS tower defence series Sanctum and wack 'em up Goat Simulator as well as publishing games including Deep Rock Galatic. It sounds like they broadly plan to…

Satisfactory looks a lot like first-person Factorio

We'll build machines to build machines to build machines to build a mysterious massive machine in Satisfactory, the next game from Sanctum and Goat Simulator developers Coffee Stain Studios. If that sounds a lot like Wube Software's fantastic Factorio, you'll probably think it looks a lot like it too after watching the new trailer. "It's x but y" is always a crude way to describe…

Coffee Stain tease us with a very Satisfactory lizard-pup

We're in the run-up to GDC and E3 again, so that means it's teaser trailer season. Today's ad-for-an-ad comes from Goat Simulator and Sanctum studio Coffee Stain, and I think they might have the camera pointed the wrong way, although I kinda hope they don't, because I have very little interest in anything but this adorable alien lizard/lobster/puppy thing now.
