Project Automata is an impressive new management sim inspired by Factorio and Transport Tycoon, in which you build a vast industrial empire, create a transport network and trade with nearby cities.
The visuals and UI of Project Automata feel fondly reminiscent of the early Sim City games, but thankfully you don’t have to worry about making your whining citizens happy – in Project Automata it’s all about building industry and making money! It the game you build factories, farms and natural resource gatherers then build roads for transport to start dealing with local cities. You’re best building your factories a decent distance away from the cities, as the cities will need to expand – and expansion is good as it means the more of what you’re selling!
Project Automata is still very early in development, but it shows a lot of promise, the visuals are clean and uncluttered, the UI is very user friendly and the industry-focused management simulation is very engaging. Well worth checking out for some easily accessible business management with plenty of depth.
