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…

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’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…

Factorio plays Darude in this ridiculous video player build

I've had a go at Factorio [official site], and even managed to automate resource mining and production. I thought I had a good grip on the game until I saw what DaveMcW was able to create. Using just the components available in the base game, he managed to build what is essentially a video stream decoder and display program.

Would you forage for food, build shelter and eventually draw a face on a discarded volleyball?
