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."

Factorio Joins Early Access Assembly Line, Has Demo

Hypothetically speaking, if you were to crash land on a remote foreign planet, how do you reckon you'd survive? Would you forage for food, build shelter and eventually draw a face on a discarded volleyball? Or would you mine resources, create machines and build your own multi-functioning warehouses, championing your own pseudo industrial revolution? Factorio [official site] is a game about designing and building factories…
